Triple tilde (
The result of the triple tilde mark-up should show up in the preview.
I originally had it that way (tilde markup gets replaced for the preview), but then had a request to only do the replacement on save and not on preview (see http://pmichaud.com/pipermail/pmwiki-users/2004-June/005590.html). I personally can go either way on this one, so others will have to duke it out. (Of course, whichever isn't the default will be provided as an option.) Pm
This is an issue I don't have a very clear opinion about. Both ways of doing it has advantages.
I believe the preview is a WYSIWYG element, so it should display something that looks like the final version and not contain any markup.
Thinking about it, the question of the integrity the interface logic makes replace-on-preview the only sensible option, in my opinion at least. But anything you can switch off is a feature! ;-) Henning
Never mind...I was thinking about this issue from entirely the wrong perspective. It works now -- ~~~ displays as the author signature in the page preview but isn't converted in the edit text to an author signature until the page is actually saved. Let me know if this seems to work here and I'll close the issue. Pm
