Why, isn't it just a text string like any other?

It isn't that complex, just very big since I couldn't figure out any
easy way to choose dates with the form. Is there an easier way to do
this than to write (:input select name 1:) for every single possible value?

Quick overview of what I am trying to do, maybe it is easier to decipher
the code then:

Set Group: Set Pagename

Insert PTV EventStartDate in format YYYY-MM-DD
Insert PTV EventEndDate in format YYYY-MM-DD
This defaults to the current date.

Insert PTV EventStartTime in format HH-mm
Insert PTV EventEndTime in format HH-mm

Set (:title:)

Insert text (introduction)

Insert more text

Insert categories with an array in checkboxes (ie to place the page in
multiple categories)

Insert some other categories

Insert a link to a Facebook event
Insert a link to the event on another site (underskog.no)



It seems like it has something to do with the use of arrays, like
"tags[]". When I stopped trying to use arrays it worked without flaws. I
think there might be a bug.

How do I prevent it from redirecting?
