Subject: Re: stability of toc links
Date: Thu, 29 Apr 2021 15:18:24 -0700 [thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAJcAo8vGX3K_J+b41X1f+jERqLSiGzVdznBwvGornDDRVcSSmA@mail.gmail.com> (raw)
thank you. i can imagine that could be useful for a lot of users, but
for me, as i said in my op, "short of adding custom id
or id to everything" --- i didn't want to add custom id. i will try
to clarify why in case it is useful.
in addition to performance, and clutter, there is a semantic issue in
my case. typically, if i see that there is a properties drawer, i
know that it is there because of an org id or a manual custom id or a
special purpose of my own. if i know it, i don't need to open it.
however, adding custom id automatically for so many links means that
there is a new meaning for properties drawers [namely, for stable
linking done automatically]. i would have to open the drawer to
determine if i personally wanted something there.
and thus, the extra properties drawers would cause effort and
distraction in this semantic sense, where i would be opening them
because i would be thinking "did i really have a reason to add a
properties drawer here? i don't recall so... better check"
also, there is the issue that if i decide not to include something in
the toc, it will still have a properties drawer lying around.
in the op, i was not looking for a solution for one blog post, but
thought a general solution for all org users might be possible.
and this would likely be at the html level, probably by using e.g.
header text, fuzzy or strict hashes, or a combination.
when tec posted his html level code, it looked like the right type of
solution to the problem. i have not tried it, however.
i hope that clarifies. tec said he originally did not get much
interest. then there was interest on this thread. then nothing.
