Description emddudley 2006-05-24 02:26:59 UTC
Currently {{BASEPAGENAME}} returns the parent page of the current page; it
essentially acts like [[../]]. For example, using {{BASEPAGENAME}} on
"Wikipedia:ExamplePage/Archive_1/Subpage" it returns "ExamplePage/Archive 1".

The current behavior is misleading. I expect {{BASEPAGENAME}} to get the topmost
name, not the immediate parent. When using {{BASEPAGENAME}} on
"Wikipedia:ExamplePage/Archive_1/Subpage" I think it should return "ExamplePage".

I propose modifying the current behavior of {{BASEPAGENAME}} (getBaseText() in
Title.php) to return the topmost name, as I believe this was the original intent
of bug 5845.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2006-05-24 09:05:31 UTC
This was not the intended behaviour, and it doesn't make sense to give subpages
any more special treatment than they already have, especially since they mean
very little to MediaWiki as it is.

Introduced TITLEPARTS parser function in r22711, to allow obtaining whatever number of segments of a page title the user desires.
Comment 4 fdcn 2007-08-07 02:58:54 UTC
can do work as below?

{{#titleparts:Help:Link/a/b|-1}} gives b

{{#titleparts:Help:Link/a/b|-2}} gives a/b

{{#titleparts:Help:Link/a/b|-3}} gives Help:Link/a/b
