Description DarsVaeda 2007-08-23 22:02:33 UTC

results in unparsed plain text while PAGENAME is "Stonehenge" instead of a link to Wikipedia (in this example):


(but thats for any other page name too)
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-08-23 22:36:10 UTC
I would imagine this is because the "pipe trick" (e.g. the [[Foo|]] behaviour) is dealt with during the pre-save transform, whereas {{PAGENAME}} isn't expanded until parse time.
Comment 2 Danny B. 2007-08-24 01:30:18 UTC
Use direct notation:

Comment 3 Casey Brown 2007-08-24 01:37:26 UTC
You can expand.  [[Wikipedia:NAME|]] is just a shortuct, you can use [[Wikipedia:NAME|NAME]]
