This is a proposal for a new file extension, that I would like to introduce to STE. The introduction of this extension aims to make a multi-document STE easier to implement.

Differences between *.STE and *.WDP:

  1. STE files can be opened and edited using any other text editor. WDP files will only be editable using STE.
  2. STE files store page title, tags, parent and content. WDP files will also include other meta data: created_at, created_by, etc.
  3. Once the WDP format has been added to STE, you will no longer be able to save in the STE format. Removing backwards-compatibility is done to keep the code as manageable as possible. Note that you can still open STE files, but saving will be to WDP format only. This means that your previously-saved documents are still able to be opened.
  4. WDP stands for WikiDot Page. If you are a WinDev user, this may affect you.

Questions for you (as a user) that I'd like answers too, if possible:

  1. Have you ever edited an STE document using another editor (e.g. Notepad)? Will the loss of this feature negatively impact you?
  2. -
  3. Do you wish to keep backwards compatibility, or is the proposal listed above OK?
  4. Have you ever used WinDev? As this shares the same file extension, would that be a problem for you?

Thanks for taking the time to respond :)

All sounds good to me. I've never opened a .STE file with anything other than STE itself; lack of backwards compatibility doesn't bother me; I've never used (or even heard of) WinDev.
