Description Bernhard Fastenrath 2007-02-25 20:05:17 UTC
{{INCLUDING_PAGE}} for the name of the including page of a template when that
page is included by another page (it is not {{PAGENAME}}).

Motivation: A page (P) may include sub-pages (P1 ... Pn) and the sub-pages could
have their own talk pages. A header template (H) included by P1 ... Pn would
need to refer to [[{{TALKSPACEE}}:{{INCLUDING_PAGE}}|talk]] so a reader of P
could immediately reach the individual talk pages conveniently.
Comment 1 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-02-25 20:11:22 UTC
{{INCLUDEDPAGE}} would seem like a better name, although probably someone can do
better than that ({{REALLYPAGENAME}}? :P).
Comment 2 Bernhard Fastenrath 2007-02-25 20:41:37 UTC
{{INCLUDEDPAGE}} takes the view of the author of page P. That doesn't make sense
when INCLUDEDPAGE could be P1 ... Pn and these could again have sub-pages P1.1
... P1.i ... Pn.1 ... Pn.j. What would be the value of INCLUDEDPAGE?

For the template it would make sense to have an {{INCLUDING_PAGE}} to allow it
to distinguish based on what page it is included by. If the page generation
doesn't work that way (has no way to change the value of {{INCLUDING_PAGE}} for
different templates included in the same page P) then it would have to be a
function {{#function-including-page:<level>}} instead (e.g. with level as an
identifier for the number of inclusion levels the including page is removed from
the template).
Comment 3 Happy-melon 2010-02-28 22:20:58 UTC
{{INCLUDEDPAGE}} is just creating {{subst:PAGENAME}} variable that updates when the template is moved.  {{INCLUDINGPAGE}} is not possible with the current preprocessor and would require a lot of work to facilitate.
