Difficulties with WYSIWYG editor
I have observed that if I copy and past the flowchart plugin example into a blank page, this does not work, i.e. all the level 2 subtitles are placed in boxes linked with arrows incluging the subtitles supposedly not in the chart. The formatings of questions, the multiple columns and the colors are not rendered. If i do the same but into a blank topic in raw edit it works.
If i then edit the topic in wysiwyg it kills the rendering, it is needed to edit it directly in raw not passing by the raw button of the wysiwyg editor.
I have observed that the attribute lists are not bullet lists with three blanks and a star but a tab and a star. I dont know if that is related.
Is there a fix to make it work more stabely, I dont see how to put tabs into a topic, I have to copy and past tabs to circumvent the problem.
Is there a way to make a flow chart based on a search instruction?
The idea is to realize the following:
- I have a set of child pages to a central topic that could represent states in a flow chart.
- these pages have forms defining the type of states
- I would like to do a simple search of the childs and render it as a flowchart definition to get a representation of the states as a flow chart.
- I need some conditionality to create the attributes of the various states from the form infirmation
My question is thus, is this a doable route, is there a better way to construct such a representation.
Corolary question: It seems that is a flowchart instruction is placed in a % INCLUDE % statement, it then constructs a flowchart pointing into the included file and not the basetopic, is there a way to circumvent this.
