Like several others, I also would like to be able to use the matrix provided
by (:wikilist:) as a contacts table. I'll have just a few selected fields
visible in the (:wikilist:), and let users click through to other pages for
more information about the individual contacts.
The individual pages for the contacts would not be the numbered pages that
feed the (:wikilist:), because I want the page names to be the names of the
individuals, and I want to be able to format the contact pages and add
pictures, etc. This means that each entry in the (:wikilist:) will
correspond to two individual pages: one that feeds the wikilist, and one
that the user will visit for more information.
For the time being, I'm ok manually generating the contents of each pair of
pages to get the layout and formatting I need on the contacts page, and to
create field contents on the wikiform pages that feed the wikilist as needed
to create and display records in the wikilist like this:
Header row: | First Name | Initial | Last Name |
etc | etc |
Record row: | First | M | [[Group.FirstMLast | Last]] | etc
| etc |
So I'd like to NOT show the first, "page name" column in the wikilist. Even
if the wikiform pages that feed the wikilist are still numbered, I'd not be
wanting to link to them, so I'd like to not show the column with the links.
Instead, users would click on the entry in the Last Name field.
That's my immediate, short-term request: Can I suppress the display of the
Longer term, it would be great if that [[Group.FirstMLast | Last]]
1) could be automatically generated from user input: concatenate the input
from the first three user fields (in camel case, and ignoring any of the
three fields that might be empty) and make that the page name, with
link-text formed (optionally, I suppose) from just the selected field; and
2) could actually be the wikiform page that feeds the wikilist, if the
wikilist could find it, and
2a) if the author/admin could format the wikiform page, adding text and
images that the wikilist would ignore if they aren't form fields.
Thanks for your consideration!
