Description Bawolff (Brian Wolff) 2012-03-06 03:30:17 UTC
Originally reported here:

Given something like <ref>{{{foo}}}</ref>, the {{{foo}}} should be expanded with the content of the foo template parameter if applicable.

Basically all that needs to be done is add the PPFrame given as an argument to the <ref> callback as the second argument to the recursiveTagParse calls.

Possibly related: bug 31374 comment 23.

I also imagine this bug is a dupe, but perhaps not.

Yes, you can use #tag as a work around.

I searched, but couldn't find one.

triple brace expansion isn't done during PST. Re-opening.

Gerrit change #14682.

However, I've never seen anyone else use replaceVariables in the way i did in that change, so we'll see if it passes review or not...

The Gerrit patch was abandoned in August so this is free for the taking. :-)
Comment 7 Platonides 2012-12-09 17:41:58 UTC
It would be easier to just use  {{#tag:ref| {{{foo}}} }} ...
