Description dake 2005-10-06 21:51:56 UTC
One can currently create a new section with such URL :

It would be useful to pass a template to this URL, as a default value for the
text, same for the title :
(no subst)

This would be nice to force the use of predefined templates, for example for
votes and such "administration" pages. Such feature would remove the extra
hassle for the end-user who has to copy the template, and include it in the
textbox. I don't know if this should be restricted to templates, maybe the
inclusion would be useful for all namespaces.

This can be done by:

Thus I close this bug! But if this should not cover all of your needs, just reopen this 
bug. But I think &preload= will be enough!
