on a page in our wiki I include the NewPage macro. So far, so good.
However, what I really want is some automatism: The page to generate
should be named "xyz-<unique-key>" where <unique-key> is either a
simple sequence number (with preceeding zeros...) or whatever is
suitable for humans (reflecting order, easy to understand). I don't
want the user to observe rules and query existing pages in order to
provide that <unique.key> but I want it to have generated.
In fact, the user should only click a button to create a page with a
A randomly generated UUID is not what I have in mind. I can have date/
time expanded but this looks not nice.
I doubt a sequence can be done with what Moin provides so far. Am I
right? Has someone solved this problem? Do I have to customize this
macro? (I doubt I can achieve that :-( ) How does one count and keep
BTW Moin's "variables" are rather "constants". Or is there a way to
vary a variables usig a macro, a script or whatever - except typing it
in the Dict?
Your answer & help is highly appreciated! Best Regards,
