splitted requests from bug 2805 "<inputbox> should allow to set predefined titles"

Let me clear this up. The request is to have variables replaced in the "default"
parameter before using it to fill in the default title?
Comment 2 Judson (enwiki:cohesion) 2006-08-13 06:07:26 UTC
I think so, I would use this as well, for making date based pages also.
Comment 3 Judson (enwiki:cohesion) 2006-08-13 06:44:52 UTC
Actually, it's easier to just not use inputbox for this, and just encode the
variables all in a url.
Comment 4 Rob Church 2007-08-19 21:26:57 UTC
This was done in r24580.
