Re: [Zim-wiki] couple questions

Hi,

This is not clear:  I have one page called Deaths, which has the info of 
that particularly killing. I'd
like to have a page for Romans, and Caesar as a subpage for Romans,
and Vercingetorix as a subpage for Gauls. Did I make that clear? Is
this possible? 

A Pic of the hierarchy would help...


So you would have ( I am guessing here)

Ceasar and Vercingetorix both link to Deaths as well as to their 
respective categories Romans and Gauls??  Like below:


 Deaths,---|
|  
|
  Romans     | Caesar
|  
 Gauls  |Vercingetorix

Yes you can do this - just type the name Ceasar on the page Deaths, 
highlight it - press CTRL L  And then type the path of where the page 
Ceasar is.  It will be something like Home:Romans:Caesar
While you are typing each time you press the colon you should get a drop 
down list of pages under the namespace that you typed

Hope this helps!   Carpe Diem!!  Haha.


The spoiler button would be  a new feature request.  I am not sure how 
that is handled yet

[Zim-wiki] couple questions






Hey folks, glad to be hear. I'm very impressed and excited with Zim so
far. There are just a couple things I can't quite figure out how to do,
and I can't find the answers in the documentation, or in the answers
section here in the mailing list (there don't seem to be ANY questions
or answers, actually).

1. I'd like to link a page to a subpage of an entirely different page.
Let's say I'm talking about how Ceasar killed Vercingetorix. I have one
page called Deaths, which has the info of that particularly killing. I'd
like to have a page for Romans, and Caesar as a subpage for Romans,
and Vercingetorix as a subpage for Gauls. Did I make that clear? Is
this possible?

2. The second one is just a feature I wasn't sure existed and I'd like
to ask and request.
On many online forums there is a feature called a spoiler. It's like a
button you click that will display more text in a little box, then you
can reclick it to hide the text (or image) again. I'd really like that.

Thanks guys, and happy Zimming.

Feature requests go in the bug tracker, but in this case I would really like
to see a good use case before putting it in the list.

A simple way to deal with spoilers would be to split the text over two pages

Tags could be a better option. About the link (from the help): Relative
links

All links to other pages are relative to the current page unless they
start with an : character. Zim first looks in the same namespace as
the current page and if the name is not found searches all parent
namespaces for a like named page.

For example you have a page Zim:Examples:Linking:Relative now you
just use Absolute to link to Zim:Examples:Linking:Absolute, but you
also use Examples:Calendar to link to Zim:Examples:Calendar. This
link works because the first part of the link (Examples) is resolved
relatively in the tree above the current page.

To create relative links to sub-page of the current page start the link
with an +.

It's a mailing list, it is not a forum?
