Description Julian Fleischer 2006-07-22 22:05:47 UTC
It would be a great advantage if {{subst:}} (or even the including functionality in general) was able to include 
passages of other articles identified by their sections.

Self-Explaining Example:

A more detailed Example:
<Page A>
</Page A>

<Page B>
</Page B>

so Page B will be: "ccc"

I'm going to focus another bug which will depend on that one here that also targets another important issue for which 
this here is important too, so please wait a minute with closing it ;-D

I submitted the other bug, see Bug #6786 - it's about automatic version-history updating when including pages via subst - read the bug-explanation 
and it's comments for further details and for why this is imporant.
Comment 2 Julian Fleischer 2006-07-25 09:50:39 UTC
I'm sorry my example in my firtst post was wrong... page B would of course be

But that leads me to a new idea. I made this mist cause i just thought of including the content of the section, not the real section with heading. 
maybe another keyword jet? something like {{copy:}} or so.

Please see also Bug #6787 .
