Description Marcio Ribeiro 2004-12-09 00:02:22 UTC
This patch enables support for the use of Templates for New 
It does check if it is a New Article (and not a preview) and 
can be enabled/disabled in LocalSettings.php.

This is a diff from my local CVS wiki (original version) to 
the installed one.

RCS file: /usr/cvs/wiki/includes/EditPage.php,v
retrieving revision
diff -r1.1.1.1 EditPage.php
>     $articletemplate = '';
>     /* Checking if its a new article and it is not a 
preview */
>       if(!$this->mTitle->getArticleID() && $formtype !
= 'preview'){ # new article
>       /*
>        * Yes, it is a new article.
>        * Checking if should get data from template and if 
template file exists
>       */
>       global $wgUseArticleTemplate;
>       global $wgArticleTemplateFile;
>       if($wgUseArticleTemplate && is_readable
>         $articletemplate = implode('', file
>       }
>     }
< htmlspecialchars( $wgLang->recodeForEdit( $this-
>textbox1 ) ) .
> htmlspecialchars( $wgLang->recodeForEdit( 
$articletemplate . $this->textbox1 ) ) .
>     unset($articletemplate);


RCS file: /usr/cvs/wiki/LocalSettings.php,v
retrieving revision 1.2
diff -r1.2 LocalSettings.php
> $wgUseArticleTemplate   = true;
> $wgArticleTemplateFile  = 'templates/templatetoedit.txt';

Above are the entries used in LocalSettings.php.
$wgUseArticleTemplate is a boolean (true/false) which 
enables/disables the support for Article Templates usage.
$wgArticleTemplateFile is the file which will be automaticly 
loaded in New Article's textarea edition space.

I hope this helps somebody. :)

Is there a way to include the template in the database?
