Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-9705) Remove elementid Markdown extension
Date Wed, 01 Jul 2015 23:25:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-9705?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14611172#comment-14611172

Sebb commented on INFRA-9705:
-----------------------------

Are you sure? 

The elementid code was not removed, but was commented out (at least in the SVN copy) so it
did not actually do anything.
It created some strings to add to the output, but these were never written out.

> The elementid Markdown extension appears to have been originally intended to handle Special
Attributes as per PHP Markdown Extras [1]. However it was not a complete implementation.
> The elementid extension code was later extended to try to handle permalinks as per Subversion
[2]. However it turned out that this code interfered with TOC processing.
> It would of course be possible to fix both of these issues, however there seems little
point as the Python Markdown module includes atttribute lists [3] as well as permalinks [4].
> I think it therefore makes sense to disable elementid by removing it from markdownd.py:EXTENSIONS.
> Attribute lists and permalinks can then be enabled separately; see related JIRAs.
