I haven't used Fox Forms so I can't help you on that (sounds like Hans
made the changes needed to do what you're looking for), but if you
?action=editeform in wikiforms you will be able to edit your target data
page. (I'm assuming by "edit the target page" you mean viewing/editing
existing data in the form, make changes, and then re-save the data back
the same data-page.)
Alternatively you can just go to that page from a wikilist (or just
normally...) and you will have an "edit form" link in the upper-right
between the previous/next page links (I think you can modify the default
location on the page, but I'm pretty sure the upper-right just below the
page header is the where it comes normally).
I am aware of the "edit form" within the wikiforms recipe and it works
quite well. I guess I wasn't clear about what I am looking for.
In one of my groups 'Projects', each project has a page. I want these
project pages to be made of two parts:
* the top half made of data entered through a form
* the lower half made of text entered through the usual wiki
Currently I am generating the top half with Wikiforms and then
"including" the lower half as a 'group footer'. The lower half is a page
that actually belongs to another group called "Projecttext".
There are a number of problems caused due to this setup. The most
important one is dealing with Pagelists and searchlists. There are
others with intra-wiki links etc.
What I am therefore aiming for is only one page that would have a part
of it editable using a form which would also contain non-form based
I am open to any other ideas that you may have.
