In relation to this question: Auto indent turns off itself automatically on php files

Vim has a php auto indent script; it behaves in following way: When autoindent is ON - if you open a php script, it disables default autoindent and uses its own logic. But I noticed that if the php file contains html this script stops working.

Can you confirm that this is indeed so? Is there any way to fix this?

  • I can't reproduce, but I'm also not exactly sure what you're looking for. I have a file test.php that I've put a couple of lines of html in. When I enter the file and do verbose set ai? I get noautoindent Last set from ...indent/php.vim. So the script seems to be working for me. Can you be a little more specific about what's not working and what the expected behavior is? – Tumbler41 Jan 18 '17 at 16:18
  • @Tumbler41 open a php file that only contains PHP code. verbose set ai? will return noautoindent BUT - indentation will still happen because php.vim takes over indenting. Now open file with mixed content, see php.vim indentation breaks! – user10804 Jan 18 '17 at 16:35
  • Might be a good idea to add a few more details about how indentation is broken. Maybe an example of what it does/what you're expecting it to do? – Rich Jan 19 '17 at 13:39
  • Yes, if you could provide an MCVE, that would be very helpful. – Tumbler41 Jan 19 '17 at 17:00
