In my wiki I have a template page under
/templates that looks like this:
[[!inline pages="<TMPL_VAR PAGE>/* and !<TMPL_VAR PAGE>/*/*" show=0 template=titlepage feeds=no sort=title]] [[!trailitems pages="<TMPL_VAR PAGE>/* and !<TMPL_VAR PAGE>/*/*" sort=title]]
I tested this page with many variations and by trial and error reached a conclusion that
trailitems with a path that contains TMPL_VAR, or using the inline directive
trail=yes and a
pages that contains TMPL_VAR, the trail plugin (or something else?)
seems to not resolve the TMPL_VAR and ikiwiki fails to compile the wiki, and I get this:
syntax error in pagespec "<TMPL_VAR PAGE>/* and !<TMPL_VAR PAGE>/*/*"
on the command line.
Until I get feedback here I'll try to look at the source and see if I figure it out. My ikiwiki version: 3.20130904
Huge thanks in advance!
These templates have traditionally had a problem: they need to be simultaneously a valid page in their own right, and a valid page after template substitutions.
You might be able to get somewhere by abusing the two intersecting markup languages, something like this:
<TMPL_IF FALSE> [[!if test="included() and !included()" then=""" </TMPL_IF> ... real content here: inline, trailitems etc. ... ... just don't use a triple quote mark ... <TMPL_IF FALSE> """]] </TMPL_IF>
Alternatively, if you have direct commit access and don't need to be able to perform web-based edits on your template, I think renaming your template from
foo.tmplwould bypass this while still working as a template. --smcv
