Description Lilian 2008-06-03 10:00:22 UTC

As I need to allow my wiki users to create pages directly from a namespace with the name of the new page prefixed with namespace name, I would like to create a template "NewPageInNamespace" that contains that I can add to my namespaces with this code :


where "CP" is the name of the current namespace.

The result should be a simple form where the user can type the name of his new page and, when submitting, the namespace name is automatically added as a prefix of the new page name.

I tried the inputbox extension that seemed interesting to me. Here is the source of my template :
Create in {{{1}}} : 


But the parameter is not interpreted in inputbox. The field contains "{{{1}}}" instead of "CP".
