[textile] Definition lists in Textile

Here it mentions something like:

dl. title:data goes here

Is there a reason why our PHP Textile doesn’t do definition lists? Will it ever?

Re: [textile] Definition lists in Textile

Because Textile is not a full replacement for HTML (that would have zero interest), and can be used alongside HTML.

However definitions list are useful and can be commonly used. I don’t know, you may want to ask the Textile 2 core maintainer (Zem).

Re: [textile] Definition lists in Textile

I agree textile definition lists would be very useful. Sure, I can write one with html, but I would love for my clients who are creating their own content to be able to use a definition list where appropriate.

Re: [textile] Definition lists in Textile

I love definition lists too.

So, I added it to the Textile 2.

You can find it at my site .
The page is Japanese only but you may figure out with the codes there.

Re: [textile] Definition lists in Textile

branchiopoda. Is your classTextile based off alex’s at thresholdstate.com or the other one by brad choate?

Re: [textile] Definition lists in Textile

jakob, it’s based on alex’s at thresholdstate.com included in the Textpattern package.
And the part around definition list has been made with the idea from TextilePHP.

Re: [textile] Definition lists in Textile

thanks for the info – so it’s alex’s with brad’s dl solution added. That means one could drop it in in place of the existing one and gain dl lists. Nice, especially for fans of dl-lists like myself :-)

branchiopoda,

thanks a lot for the definition list modification.

However, if you use txp tags inside, they are wrongly parsed:

dl. *Definition text*:Text1 <txp:perm_link linkid="20">Link</txp:perm_link> more text
Text2 <txp:perm_link linkid="21">Link2</txp:perm_link> Text
<dl>
    <dt><strong>Definition text</strong></dt>
    <dd>Text1 <txp:perm_link linkid="20">Link1</txp:perm_link> more text</dd>
    <dt>Text2 <txp</dt>
    <dd>perm_link linkid=“21”>Link2</txp:perm_link> more text</dd>
    </dl>

Any way to escape the colon inside txp tags?

Thanks!

Re: [textile] Definition lists in Textile

Hey for those less Textile-savvy (me): Can I use “classTextile.php” file from branchiopedia’s site to replace the “classTextile.php” that came with Textpattern, and I’ll magically have Textile definition list capabilities?
