#208 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Edit Section

MediaWiki has the ability to edit only a section of an article. How hard would it be to get this implemented in trac? Personally, I would use MediaWiki, but I'm new at my job, and they've been using trac for awile.

Something like this would be very hard to implement as a plugin, just beacuse the wiki system offers no extension point for such a thing, though it might be possible to make a patch against the existing wiki system. My personal preference is that if a page is big enough that you need to worry about editing it in sections, you might want to break it up into smaller sub-pages.

That's kind of what I figured. What would it take to get edgewall to implement something like this?

comment:4 Changed 8 years ago by d3matt

Hey, how hard would it be to do this on the client side? Where a bit of javascript puts everything before the section in one variable, the section goes in an edit box, and everything goes in another variable. I haven't looked at the wiki code, but how hard would it be to do something like that?

The issue is that there is not really a good way (without patching) to alter the wiki web interface.
