Good morning everyone,



Is there a way to set the current page name as a query string to a form edit link, and then have the form set that value as the default value for a combo box? I want the page name they are opening the form from set as a property on the new page. I saw the extension "UrlGetParameters", but wondering if there is a way to do it without installing the extension. If anyone could help out, that would be much appreciated.





Thank you,

I responded to this same question on mediawiki-l (after this email was
already sent), but if anyone is wondering, the answer can be found in the
5th item here:

You could  preload data to the Form [1]. Use {{PAGENAME}} or {{FULLPAGENAME}} to feed  it to the form where you want.
