Feature Proposal: Add format parameter to URLPARAM


I often have the need to write the value of a url param - only if that url param is passed. For instance: name - date in a bullet list. A common use case is CommentPlugin url param expansion.

Parameter options like FORMFIELD would fit URLPARAM as well.

Description and Documentation

  • Returns the value of a URL parameter.
  • Syntax: %URLPARAM{"name"}%
  • Supported parameters:
    Parameter: Description: Default:
    format="..." Format the result. $value expands to the URL parameter. If multiple is specified, $value expands to the result of the concatenated items. "$value"

this is similar and related to the ExtractAndCentralizeFormattingRefactor - we should thus be able to add format=, and presumably %FORMAT to most TML.

Useful enhancement, I support it. Who is going to own this?

Small and useful enhancements, I can implement this if nobody else steps up.

This is now an accepted proposal by the 7 day review period.

I removed the "expand the usual format tokens" feature because it interfered with the encoding.

This is now implemented in SVN trunk, scheduled for TWiki-5.1.
