Feature Proposal: Table of existing topics/WikiWords, or tab completion for same


It's difficult to remember exactly what you titled that last topic, so you end up having to open another TWiki page and search for the topic to copy and paste the title.


Tab completion itself is probably impossible due to the nature of Twiki, but anything that makes existing topics easily referenced would be great. A drop-down menu with all categories, expandable to all child topics, and available in the edit page would work as well. Even a page that lists all existing topics would be appreciated.

Any comments on how the feature is implemented or could be improved


With some clever ajaxian tricks, tab-completition is possible (hey, gmail has email completition, so...)

You could always keep Topic List open in a separate browser window, couldn't you?

WysiwygPlugin has an AJAX-driven topic list for inserting names of topics. In time that function could be generalised for those people using the TML editor.
