#1548 closed enhancement (fixed)

New style docs pages don't have any in-page navigation

Reported by: themiked's profile theMikeD Owned by: drewapicture's profile DrewAPicture
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Developer Hub Keywords: has-patch


The current page for get_posts has an in-page navigation to make finding what you want easier. I don't see this functionality in the new-style pages. Is this by design?

Hi @theMikeD, thanks for the suggestion. I'm actually working on a proof of concept for this very thing right now! I was waiting until I had an MVP to create a ticket but you beat me to it :-)

Not all references are going to be as complete as some of the larger ones (like get_posts() or WP_Query, etc.), so my best suggestion and approach is going to make it possible to selectively enable a ToC for the explanations module (also known as the "More Information" section in a particular reference.

Over the holidays, I did a ton of work converting the WP_Query docs from the Codex to something we could use on DevHub, and with a Table of Contents, that reference page would look something like this:

That looks great! I'd love to help if I can, even if it's just proofing. But if we could abstract that somehow that would be really good. How can I help?

  • Keywords has-patch added

1548.diff implements the Handbooks table of contents functionality for the "More Information" sections on all four parsed post types.

Spoke with @coffee2code in person about it and we think this is the best first-step. It might later be worth looking at injecting the other sections (currently output as <section> tags) into the TOC logic to include them.

1548.2.diff Incorporates further feedback from @coffee2code to handle the post content filtering inside of get_explanation_field() instead of within the template.
