ToDo/Wish List


Non-highlight code block

use <Code:none> or <Code lang-none> to prevent highlight code. Maybe useful to show error log output or console output.

This is not any kind of code.

Known Bugs and Issues

Using current dokuwiki theme and prettifyer with <Code linenums> does print a linenumber only on every fifth. line.

To solve just add .prettyprint ol.linenums > li { list-style-type: decimal; } to lib/plugins/codeprettify/all.css
