[pmwiki-users] Feature request - selecting between multiple templates for new pages

Hi All,

Here is a feature that will help me with my web site (I will explain below
why), and I wonder if it is already implemented or should be added to a
feature list for the future.

The feature: I would like to be able to choose between several (existing)
templates when I create a new page in my wiki.


I started my wiki (link below) with the idea of documenting gps tracks and
points of interest in Costa Rica. I created groups based on context. Tracks
include bus routes, hikes and car rides. Points of interest are broken up
into restaurants, sights, hotels, stores and POI which includes everything
else (cemeteries, city parks, etc.)

Each group has its own template page.

Now I am finding that I am adding data from other locations - the US,
Nicaragua, Panama, Israel, Europe - all grouped together under a single
group 'Misc.' I have no way of having different templates based on the type
of point in these countries, except to create a separate wiki for each one.
So what I do right now is add the content under the main wiki, than manually
copy the page to the Misc. group.

I also have a user-edited group, but because it can only have one template,
I limit it to points of interest.

What I would like to have multiple templates, and be able to choose when I
create a new page which one to use. This way, I can easily regroup the pages
based on countries, without losing the ability to match the template to the
page content.
