Non apperance of CharInsert gadget...[edit]

When editing an Index page I do not see the additional toolbar generated for the CharInsert gadget. Can someone give EXACT configuration details to get it working again, thanks? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 15:18, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Currently under discussion at Wikisource:Scriptorium/Help#Wikitext_editor. I doubt anyone has EXACT configuration details to give you. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 16:04, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Plainlist does not indent for sub lists..[edit]

The page here has an index with 2 levels of entries Page:Mr. Punch's history of the Great War, Graves, 1919.djvu/330

I could format this using TOCstyle, but that seems like overkill, so I am using plainlist, however currently that just flattens the list down entirely, which is not the desired behaviour.

Is there someone here that can come up with a tweaked CSS class to accommodate a page like this?ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 14:29, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Simplify. Don't use a list class at all. It's not necessary for indices. For something like this I usually use poem tags and a simple colon indent for the second level. No need to make it more complex than that. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 19:26, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
It's a list; it should be marked up as a list, not least to improve accessibility. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 20:26, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
The CSS you need is: style="list-style:none". Eg:
<ul style="list-style:none">
<li>Outer item 1</li>
<li>Outer item 2</li>
  <ul style="list-style:none">
    <li>Inner item 1</li>
    <li>Inner item 2</li>
<li>Outer item 3</li>
Which renders like:
  • Outer item 1
  • Outer item 2
    • Inner item 1
    • Inner item 2
  • Outer item 3
...Unless I misunderstood what you were looking for? --Mukkakukaku (talk) 03:03, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Which is essentialy what {{plainlist/s}}{{plainlist/e}} could be generating.. The class for plainlist needs a LI->UL->LI rule I think..ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 11:50, 8 November 2018 (UTC) which I don't think it currently has.. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 11:51, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Currently using TOCstyle as I understand it. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 11:51, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
The actual style for plainlist is
.plainlist ul{line-height:inherit;list-style:none;margin:0}
.plainlist ul li{margin-bottom:0}

which seems to mean every UL is forced to left-hand margin of the DIV, irrespective of it being a "sub" list or not.

MAybe an additional rule such as

.plainlist_i ul li ul{position:relative; list-style:none; margin:1.6em} 

could be considered, so that successive sub-lists can beindented, but I don't think it's complete solution. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 12:04, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Pretty sure you don't need position:relative. I'm also pretty sure you don't need anything more complicated than:
.plainlist ul{ list-style:none; padding-left:0 }
.plainlist li > ul { padding-left:1em; }
