create new tag
, view all tags


I would like to let the user select a template when creating a new topic. I understand (or think wink ) that this can be done by editing the WebTopicEditTemplate topic and adding a combo box containing all existing templates or whatever (see PerTopicTemplates ).

But what if the user does not use the "Go" box to create the new topic but by adding a WikiWord and clicking the question mark? Can I somehow redirect to the WebTopicEditTemplate topic?

(I would like to see a behaviour similar to that of MoinMoin Wiki, see http://twistedmatrix.com/users/jh.twistd/moin/moin.cgi/WikiSandBox )

Thanks, Klaus

This is not in the core code. For the Go box see DynamicEditTopicTemplate. For the question mark link some more magic needs to be done.

  1. TigerSkinPlugin already has a createtopic script. This might offer that facility
  2. I asked in KoalaSkinDev a few weeks ago for this facility to be put into KoalaSkin

In short, I concur that TWiki needs this facility and I assert that it needs to be in the core code. Otherwise we'll just end up with multiple and hence different implementations. To get this right the CoreTeam needs to sponsor ConsolidateFunctionalityFromSkins.
