> Do you mean why "for pages with more than 3 headings"?
Yes. The visibility of a table of contents being an attribute of the user is odd enough. (The user needs to be logged in that particular wiki, and there are ten odd wikis: /19/, /20/, ... /26/ and /dev/.) But I got used to it. Now this three headings rule, can not think of a reason.
> I don't know why that particular number was chosen, but I would imagine it was probably thought that for fewer than 3 headings you could see them all on the page and didn't need quick links.
You know pretty well that web doesn't have pages (paper and slides do). Web is for the screen, and after the invention of elastic interfaces for mobile devices, even that word has lost its meaning.
> As for linking to a particular section, I wouldn't have thought it was "wild guessing" as it seems to me it is the hashtag # and then the title of the section but with underscores _ where the spaces are
Do you mean to say, that is the prescribed way of finding deep links on MoodleDocs
? How about other special characters like question mark, brackets and braces, accents, etc. which come up often in section headings? Do you speak RFC1738 too?
> ( I personally tend not to link to sections as before I began contributing to docs it used to confuse me when I only saw a section of a page and not its top immediately on first access, so I don't do that deep linking very often.)
What you do is upto you. This is me looking for deep links. Mind you, I am not alone! http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/doc/deeplinking.html#background
. In this particular example I was talking to somebody about http://docs.moodle.org/en/Messaging#Instant_messaging
and not about http://docs.moodle.org/en/Messaging#Message_alerts
. Got the idea?
