Help/CreatePagePlugin

The CreatePage plugin allows to easily create new pages, optionally with default content.

This allows you to create a page geting the new pagename from a forms-based interface, and optionally with the initial content from some template.

Put a <?plugin-form CreatePage ?> at some page, browse this page, enter the name of the page to create, then click the button.

Usage

<?plugin-form CreatePage ?>
<?plugin-form CreatePage template=CategoryHomePage ?>
<?plugin-form CreatePage template=SomeTemplatePage vars="year=2004&name=None" ?>

Arguments

Argument

Description

Default value

s

The pagename, which will passed to the plugin.

initial_content

The new page will be pre-filled with this content.

template

The new page will be pre-filled with the content of this page.

vars

Variables to be expanded.

overwrite

Whether to overwrite an existing page.

Variable Expansion

The content (either initial_content or template) might hold some variables, which will be expanded on creation. Unassigned variables will stay as %%<var>%%, assigned variables without matching %%<var>%% placeholder will be ignored, without any warning.

A variable in a template is denoted as %%var%%, which will be expanded by the value of var given to the vars argument (in urlencoded php notation).

Some special variables are automatically assigned:

%%ctime%%

$WikiTheme->formatDateTime(time())

%%author%%

$user->getId()

This forms together with page templates and the Help:WikiFormRichPlugin and optionally the Help:SqlResultPlugin a framework to create templated pages.

Authors

Examples

<?plugin-form CreatePage s=MyHomePage ?>
