Description Misza 2008-02-01 23:31:38 UTC
Please create an equivalent of {{BASEPAGENAME}} that cuts not only the last level of a page's name but all the way up to the "ground" level.

For example, on page [[User talk:Example/Archives/2008/January]]:
* {{BASEPAGENAME}} returns "Example/Archives/2008"
* proposed {{REALBASEPAGENAME}} (or whatever you name it) returns just "Example"

(Don't forget the URL-friendly {{REALBASEPAGENAMEE}}.)
Comment 1 Danny B. 2008-02-01 23:36:58 UTC
Suggesting {{ROOTPAGENAME}}.
Comment 2 Misza 2008-02-02 01:00:02 UTC
Implemented in r30413.
Comment 3 Danny B. 2008-02-04 20:43:03 UTC
Unfortunately reverted in r30547.
Comment 4 Misza 2008-02-04 20:56:02 UTC
A solution for wikis that have ParserFunctions extension installed is to use {{#titleparts:{{PAGENAME}}|1}}.

Comment 6 Peter van Londen 2008-05-07 20:47:59 UTC
Thanks for that solution with titleparts: that works. I have added this to
Comment 7 Lady Aleena 2008-08-04 00:01:04 UTC
{{ROOTPAGENAME}} would be great! Please?
Comment 8 Brion Vibber 2008-08-04 21:20:09 UTC
Is a {{ROOTPAGENAME}} still necessary if #titleparts does this?
Comment 9 Sam Reed (reedy) 2008-08-04 21:25:07 UTC
Would be easier to remember {{ROOTPAGENAME}}...
Comment 10 Brion Vibber 2008-08-04 21:34:35 UTC
Ok, how about we restore r30413 but without the extra PARENTPAGENAME alias?
Comment 11 Misza 2008-08-05 22:25:52 UTC
How about we add ParserFunctions to core? ;)
Comment 12 Sam Reed (reedy) 2009-01-01 22:41:17 UTC
Any chance of getting this one done? ;P

Seeing as its quite easy
Comment 13 Lady Aleena 2009-02-23 06:26:49 UTC
You mean that this still hasn't been added yet? :O

There is a template on Wikipedia that could use {{ROOTPAGENAME}}, so please do this.
Comment 14 Niklas Laxström 2009-02-23 09:50:47 UTC
Titleparts has been available for how long now, what is the problem?
Comment 15 Sam Reed (reedy) 2009-02-23 16:05:25 UTC
I suspect the bug being open/people not knowing about it...

For peoples info...

So, its whether people accept that as a solution (fine if the wiki has parser functions), or if something should still go in core...
