Description Tisza Gergő 2007-02-11 12:30:34 UTC
With the current template syntax, it is impossible to create simple templates
like {{template|url}} beacuse many urls contain the = character causing the
template engine to interpret it as a named parameter. While this can be
circumvented with something like {{template|url=url}} or {{template|1=url}},
this makes using the template more difficult, and users regularly get it wrong.
A simple solution would be extending the template syntax with something like
{{{#1}}} which would get the first parameter, no matter whether it is named or
unnamed, and it would get a named parameter in the "<name>=<value>" form.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2007-02-11 18:14:02 UTC
If you got the first parameter, it would be the part of the URL after the = ...
probably not what you wanted.

Note that: 

> it would get a named parameter in the "<name>=<value>" form.

I.e., you would get the whole thing.
