  • Enable task lists in GFM
    This is a feature request. Specification According to the plugin specs, this (wonderful, great, irreplacable) plugin supports three MD-flavors, with it, Github Flavored Markdown. I have configured it accordingly: Markdown flavor: github flavored. One very useful extension from GFM are task lists [1], but they do not seem to work in this plugin. I write: Shopping List - [ ] Salt - [x] Pepper - [ ] Vinegar - [ ] Vine List items display like [ ] Salt and not with Motivations The motivation is Accordance with the standard (GMF) Dokuwiki can be used for checklists / task lists, very handy in a lot of process cases [1] (
  • feature - use with include plugin section
    This is a feature request. 1st: thank you for this plugin. Wonderful. Even page menu and section links integrate perfectly. Specification: The 'core' (to me) include plugin allows adding only a section of a page in another page. I did not not manage to embed a section between the markdown tags in another page. It results in the entire page being included. E.g: {{page>mypage#3rdpar}} or {{section>mypage#3rdpar}} Motivations: Section inclusion on other pages is important to the way I use the wiki (single sourcing) Since github markdown is more of a standard, it helps if people can use this 'normal' markdown (also if pasted from other sources). Thank for this wonderful plugin. It is very useful also without this feature.
  • Feature Request: Markdown toolbar
    Specification: Implement Markdown toolbar for inserting text on editor such as DokuWiki's. Motivations: See #34
  • Links with title broken
    DokuWiki 2018.04.22-0122 Apache 2.2.34-0020 PHP 7.0.30-0027 Links with title seem to be broken: [I'm an inline-style link with title]( "Google's Homepage")
  • Feature request: toolbar and live preview which is implemented by Markdownextra plugin
    Hello, it's great to finally get an actively maintained MD plugin for Dokuwiki again! One thing that would be crucial for us is a markdown toolbar and (less important) a live preview like the markdownextra plugin provides. One downside markdownextra has for this feature is that the the page name needs to end with .md which is quite unportable, so it would be great if this feature didn't rely on the page name. Thanks for your consideration!
