What's up with this page?

Jump to: navigation, search

This page is used as preload content for articles created by the inputbox at WikiEducator:Style guide/Proposed guidelines. Because of the nature of the preload, there are no instructions in the content page, and there are no <noinclude> or other tags of the sort. Unfortunately the page needs to remain that way until inputbox allows for the inclusion tags to work.

DO NOT delete this page without specifying a new preload page for the inputbox, or otherwise making sure this page is no longer needed.

Have you tried the preload page as a template? I seem to remember using templates for the preload and editintros but will need to look into <noinclude> working or not.

According to the extension documentation, there is no fix for the inclusion tags, yet, unless I read that wrong. I put it in the Help namespace because that's where I'm used to putting documents like boilerplates, the contents of which are copied, rather than transcluded. I think putting them there helps differentiate it from regular templates, where changes are easily reverted across the entire wiki with just one edit. But, if a preload page or a boilerplate gets edited, all the pages using that preload or boilerplate need to be edited by hand to reflect the changes. However, I didn't actually try to verify a precedence, I just put it where I thought it would be logical. If WE would rather have it in the Template namespace, it's no problem to move. ;)

Using Help:PageName seems logical to me. Using a template does not work either --anymore? -- as per your link. I must be getting old. Sorry to send you on a wild goose chase.

I don't think the bug has to do with what namespace it's in, rather it's about how the code for the extension works. I find that a little strange since {{subst:}} uses inclusion tags just fine.
