NAME

HTML::WikiConverter::MediaWiki - Convert HTML to MediaWiki markup

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use HTML::WikiConverter;
  my $wc = new HTML::WikiConverter( dialect => MediaWiki );
  print $wc->html2wiki( $html );



DESCRIPTION

This module contains rules for converting HTML into MediaWiki markup. See HTML::WikiConverter for additional usage details.

ATTRIBUTES

In addition to the regular set of attributes recognized by the HTML::WikiConverter constructor, this dialect also accepts the following attributes:

    preserve_bold

Boolean indicating whether bold HTML elements should be preserved as HTML in the wiki output rather than being converted into MediaWiki markup.

By default, <b> and <strong> elements are converted to wiki markup identically. But sometimes you may wish <b> tags in the HTML to be preserved in the resulting MediaWiki markup. This attribute allows this.

For example, if preserve_bold is enabled, HTML like



  <ul>
    <li> <b>Bold</b>
    <li> <strong>Strong</strong>
  </ul>



will be converted to



  * <b>Bold</b>
  * Strong



When disabled (the default), the preceding HTML markup would be converted into



  * Bold
  * Strong



    preserve_italic

Boolean indicating whether italic HTML elements should be preserved as HTML in the wiki output rather than being converted into MediaWiki markup.

For example, if preserve_italic is enabled, HTML like



  <ul>
    <li> <i>Italic</i>
    <li> <em>Emphasized</em>
  </ul>



will be converted to



  * <i>Italic</i>
  * Emphasized



When disabled (the default), the preceding HTML markup would be converted into



  * Italic
  * Emphasized



    preserve_templates

Boolean indicating whether {{template}} calls found in HTML should be preserved in the wiki markup. If disabled (the default), templates calls will be wrapped in <nowiki> tags.

    preserve_nowiki

Boolean indicating whether <nowiki> tags found in HTML should be preserved in the wiki markup. If disabled (the default), nowiki tags will be replaced with their content.

    pad_headings

Boolean indicating whether section headings should be padded with spaces (eg, == Section == instead of ==Section==). Default is false (ie, not to pad).
