Use this to apply per-section modifications to HTML (like wrapping the section in a DIV). Caveat: DIVs are valid wikitext, and a DIV can begin in one section and end in another. Make sure your code can handle that case gracefully. See the EditSectionClearerLink extension for an example.

  • $parser: the calling Parser instance
  • $section: the section number, zero-based, but section 0 is usually empty
  • &$sectionContent: ref to the content of the section. modify this.
  • $showEditLinks: boolean describing whether this section has an edit link
