Description Borgx 2006-05-05 23:08:06 UTC
Ex: Wikipedia:Today's featured article/May 12, 2006

{{FULLPAGENAME}} = Wikipedia:Today's featured article/May 12, 2006
{{NAMESPACE}} = Wikipedia
{{SUBPAGENAME}} = May 12, 2006
{{PAGENAME}} = Today's featured article/May 12, 2006

But there is no way to get the "Today's featured article". Please provide
variable giving this pagename minus subpagename.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2006-05-06 15:25:23 UTC
For what purpose? Won't [[../]] et al. work for linking?
Comment 2 Borgx 2006-05-07 04:25:24 UTC
According to example above, [[../]] returns Wikipedia:Today's featured article
with inline link. The objective is to get the title "Today's featured article".

Some application for this is for navigational template such as:
{{#expr:{{CURRENTDAY}}-1}}, {{CURRENTYEAR}}]]
{{#expr:{{CURRENTDAY}}+1}}, {{CURRENTYEAR}}]]
Comment 3 Rob Church 2006-05-14 03:51:55 UTC
Added BASEPAGENAME and BASEPAGENAMEE magic words in SVN trunk, r14212.
Comment 4 Conrad Dunkerson 2007-01-19 11:02:23 UTC
Using {{BASEPAGENAME}} on the en-wikip 'Main Page/Tomorrow' page returns "Main
Page/Tomorrow" instead of just "Main Page" as expected.
Comment 5 Rotem Liss 2007-01-19 15:35:17 UTC
enwiki doesn't have subpages enabled in the main namespace.
