    Description

    The goal is to get rid of the editor panels and integrate their corresponding functionality in the editor itself. There are several reasons for doing this (having all the editor functions in one place, without depending on the panels that might or might not be in the database, having the possibility to integrate the editors in view mode without functionality loss, etc).

    There are two proposals, one where all the information from the side panels is inserted in the main editor in semantically related places, and one where the information from the side panels is grouped in an "Advanced options" zone, hidden by default and displayable on the right.

    Variant A

    All the information from the side panels is inserted in the main editor in semantically related places:

    • the language/translation can be chosen from the content menu
    • the user can change the parent document by editing the hierarchy
    • the included documents are listed above the content
    • the document syntax can be selected from a field placed near the content textarea; a link to the syntax help page is provided in the same place. Note that the included documents and the page syntax are only visible in the wiki editing mode. Users editing pages in wysiwyg are not bothered with such details.

    To edit the parent, the user must click on the icon next to the hierarchy:

    This will reveal the parent input field:

    Note that future document metadata, such as the view and edit sheet, hidden flag, document type, etc. will be displayed in a different edit mode, since these are not related to the document content editing.

    Variant B

    All the information from the side panels is grouped in an "Advanced options" zone, hidden by default and displayable on the right. This variant is highly similar to what we currently have in edit mode, with the additional possibility to hide it to gain more horizontal space.

    Clicking on Advanced Options will reveal the more technical edit fields:
