Foswiki 1.0.7: TinyMCE and Indents

After upgrading to foswiki 1.0.7 we discovered a problem, that can also be seen on this website:

Indents of normal paragarphs are not stored.
Simultaneous indention of multiple paragraphs doesn't work.

What we want to see (replace "_" with " "):




What we see:




Our System:

TinyMCE in Foswiki 1.0.7-3 upgraded from 1.0.6
Operating System: Ubuntu 8.0.4 LTS

Hello RonBeezer, and thank you for your question.

Unfortunately indented paragraphs are a concept that is not provided by TML (Topic Markup Language) natively.

With some CSS trickery to add appropriate classes to <p> tags, it could be done.

Can you please clarify whether this is a feature that you used to have before upgrading to 1.0.7, or is this just a feature you'd like to see added?

If it used to work, what wiki were you using and what version?

Thank you

Yes, I am seeing this problem in my installation too!

Hello PaulHarvey,

In former Versions of Foswiki (before 1.07) the integrated old TinyMCEPlugin used a workaround for indention by using blockquote-tags. The qiven example looks like that in the HTML-Source:
<div class="foswikiTopic"> Text


That is better than nothing, but even better would be a new feature in Foswiki after 1.0.7.

The Composer in the Seamonkey-Suite transforms the given example to this code:

<div style="margin-left: 40px;">Text


<div style="margin-left: 80px;">Text

That doesn't look like CSS trickery and the output looks better that using blockquotes. I think hat TML / Foswiki need new features.

Anything that isn't TML is CSS trickery wink

TinyMCE does paragraph indenting on <p> tags, Eg. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">. I suppose we need WysiwygPlugin to preserve <p> attributes if present, instead of converting them to straight newlines.

Created feature proposal: Development.SupportBlockquoteAndIndenting. It's possible this could be done for 1.0.8, but more likely this will be afterwards.

Might have blockquote button at least for 1.0.8. See Tasks.Item2341. Checked in to svn trunk, will commit to release branch (1.0.8) if/when feature proposal is approved.

-- PaulHarvey - 09 Nov 2009

Tasks.Item2516 will be used to implement new paragraph indenting feature.
