Feature Proposal: add format to META{"parent"}


(originally written in HowToShowParentTopics) Today I was missing the ability for META{"parent"} to use a format parameter. So now I have a small update to RenderDotPm that makes this possible (for the $web and $topic values).


%META{"parent" nowebhome="on" format="something before $web.$topic something after" prefix="" suffix=""}%

Impact and Available Solutions

Note: Patch is attached as render_parent_with_format. The patch is against RenderDotPm svn rev 1747.




Real life example that uses AddFormfieldParamToMetaParent:

<div class="twikiHomePath">
You are here: [[%WEB%.WebHome][%WebPreferences.CLIENTNAME%]] %META{"parent" formfield="Pagetitle" nowebhome="on" format=" <span class='twikiSeparator'>&gt;</span> [[$web.$topic][$formfield]]"}% <span class='twikiSeparator'>&gt;</span><strong> %FORMFIELD{"Pagetitle" topic="%TOPIC%" format="<nop>$value" alttext="<nop>%TOPIC%"}% </strong>


See patch.


I don't think this is acceptable, for the reasons given in AddFormfieldParamToMetaParent, so I'm dropping it from Dakar.
