A button next to "edit with form" that will allow editing current document with another name.
Effectively it's just using a form of current page and preloading current page to this form, but having different page name for it.
When "Save as" button clicked on http://www.example.com/wiki/Page1 page that has Form:Form1 as default form assigned and user asked it to be saved as Page2, the resulting URL must look something like this:
Changed "button" to "tab" in the title.
Shouldn't be too hard to implement now when we have Bug 12594 resolved and preload can just be passed as parameter to AddPage.
Something similar to this can be done with a formlink query string parameter. Basically, you just make a link that says something like "Add a page like this", and preload all the properties you want. That's the best way to do it, where you have fine control over the preloaded properties.
If you want a complete copy, without manually producing a formlink, have a look at these:
I agree it would be nice if perhaps formlink were extended to provide an option to copy everything, especially in situations when manually specifying the preload data is problematic, like if it were frequently changing.
Since this dates back to 2007, it should be reviewed to decide if it is still needed,if it should be closed, or if a new bug report should be opened that is different in some way.
I went ahead and marked this as WONTFIX since it has been several years since anything has happened with this report, and it seems that in most cases a form preload can easily achieve the requested functionality. Feel free to reopen it if there's a use case that isn't already served by using a query string preload.
