Is a hierarchical outline identical to a tabbed outline form?[edit]

Is a hierarchical outline (mentioned in the result format template) identical to a tabbed outline form (mentioned in the definition within the first paragraph)? Thanks. --Linforest 13:39, 13 March 2012 (CET)

Yes, but I believe "hierarchical" describes it better. I have changed it to be consistent. Cheers --[[kgh]] 16:09, 13 March 2012 (CET)

Tree from recursive (same-category-pointing) property

Tree from recursive (same-category-pointing) property[edit]

This extension would be even more powerful if it enabled display of an outlined list based on a page property that points to zero, one or several pages of the same category as the page itself. It should be possible to implement an efficient, two-pass method by using a recursive procedure (pass two for the output) after loading all pages' names and pointer/s to other pages into memory (pass one). It must be possible to limit the number of levels by a parameter to prevent an eternal loop in case some page points to itself, or alternatively detect such a case and stop at this condition.

Use case: Category Persons containing pages with property Parent producing an outline going backwards in time from one person (i.e. genealogy).

You can actually do that with another format: "tree".

Intro and outro

Hi, could it be that the intro and outro don't work with the outline format?
