Re: Re: Forum posts in wiki pages

Let me make it more clear:
The author of the wiki page will likely have his own criteria why he considers a post important.
For example in a forum "motorbike maintenance" there often appear reports about which sealant to use. So one user decides to write a wiki page "sealant how-to" - then he just wants to select the posts to show based on this aspect, not on community ranking.

There might be no "cool" interface for the wiki page editor in the first place, he might cope with a syntax like:
that inserts this post's text in a wiki page, or some kind of "macro".

posts: 289 United States

Sorry for the confusion.

The syntax is simply:
[ url | display text ]
(single square brackets. Spaces between both brackets and the pipe symbol are not necessary, used here only for clarity)

The markup is the same as an external link, there's no internal link for Wiki-to-Forum, only Wiki-to-Wiki (which uses ((MyWikiPage)), double parentheses).

Here's an actual example:
[tiki-view_forum_thread.php?forumId=4&comments_parentId=38633&comments_per_page=1&thread_style=commentStyle_threaded|Re: Re: Forum posts in Wiki pages]

Results in:

Which links to your post that I'm replying to, and the link is obtained by hovering over the title of your post, right clicking and choosing "copy link location" in your browser.

Note that the full domain isn't necessary, you can just link to the tiki page: tiki_view-forum.php but you'll need the correct parameters to denote the forum and post (which you'll get if you copy the link location).

Does this more accurately answer your question?
