I've been working on this part of the Rich Wikis project to make PublicLab.org's wikis more interactive -- to encourage people to author more -- and one part of that has been the "Editable sub-sections" feature.
(as an aside, isn't that the _raddest_ lead image?)
To make editing wikis easier, we're interested in making it possible to edit just one section; sections could be divided as block elements, so any header, paragraph, list, blockquote, or image would become a subsection.
Subsections could have an "edit" link next to them, which opens an inline editor for just that subsection.
While this code should shortly appear on the Public Lab site, it's not active by default -- it must be activated by adding
?raw=true to the end of a wiki page URL. But you can test it out without any repercussions on our testing server, which mirrors our live server:
(note that you'll need to be logged in for this to work)
You can open a section for editing by pressing the "pencil" icon at the end of an editable section. For now it's Markdown, but we'll get a rich text editor in there soon.
Have fun, and feedback/input very welcome!
