Rozšíření:Page Forms/Záložka "Upravit přes formulář"

This page is a translated version of the page Extension:Page Forms/The "edit with form" tab and the translation is 2% complete.

To get the "edit with form" tab to appear on the page, you must use the parser function #default_form. This function is called in the following way:


...where form-name is the name of the form, without the namespace prefix "Form:".

If a user is not allowed to edit a page that is form-editable, the tab will show up for them as "view form" instead; clicking on the tab will show the disabled form.

#default_form displays a message like "This category uses the form form-name." To hide this message, you can embed the call within a hidden element, like:

<span style="display:none">{{#default_form:Organization}}</span>
The syntax "[[Has default form::form-name]]", that was used in former versions of this extension, i.e. when it was called Semantic Forms, to bind a form to a page, no longer works; every such call has to be changed to #default_form.

Based on category

The recommended approach is to use categories. To enable a page to have a tab in this way, you must first define that page as belonging to a specific category. The best way to match pages with a category is to place a 'Category' tag inside the main template that defines this page type; that way, every page that uses this template will become part of this category.

Then, place a call to #default_form in the page for that category. You can do this automatically if you create the category using the 'CreateCategory' page.

Based on namespace

You can also match a namespace to a form, meaning that every page in that namespace will be editable with that form. First, locate the page defining that namespace. For instance, if the namespace you want to associate with a form is 'User', the page in which you need to add the #default_form call can be found by navigating to 'Project:User' (you may need to create this page).

If the namespace you want a default form for is the main one (i.e., the one with no name), you will need to add the #default_form call to the page called 'Project:Main'. If the site language ($wgLanguageCode in LocalSettings.php) is not English, replace "Main" with the blank namespace name that is defined in your wiki's system message MediaWiki:Pf_blank_namespace. Or, alternatively, change the content of that system message to "Main".

Once you've added this call, every page within that namespace will have that form associated with it, unless it already belongs to a category that has an associated form (categories take precedence over namespaces).

Within the page

You can also associate a form directly to a page. This is especially useful when the category and namespace options aren't possible, such as when pages belong to multiple categories that have different default forms. To do this, simply add a call to #default_form directly to the page, or to a template that the page calls.

Preventing the tab from appearing

If you want to ensure that a page does not get an "edit with form" tab, add the following call to the relevant page, category or namespace page:


Configuring the editing tabs

For pages that have an "edit with form" tab, you may want the regular "edit" tab to be renamed or even removed altogether. There are flags you can set in "LocalSettings.php" to change the appearance of the editing tabs:

  • $wgPageFormsRenameEditTabs = true; - renames the "edit with form" tab to "edit", and the "edit" tab to "edit source" (in whatever language the wiki is being viewed in)
  • $wgPageFormsRenameMainEditTab = true; - renames only the "edit" tab to "edit source" (in whatever language the wiki is being viewed in)
You cannot use these two configuration parameters mentioned above in case you have the VisualEditor extension installed on your wiki, too.
  • $wgGroupPermissions[...]['viewedittab'] - can be set, for different types of viewers, to toggle whether each type will see the regular edit tab. One common modification is to set it to false normally (i.e. for viewer type '*'), and to true for 'sysop' viewers:
Same as above; these permissions will cause issues with the VisualEditor extension, which requires the edit tab as an entrypoint.
    • $wgGroupPermissions['*']['viewedittab'] = false;
    • $wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['viewedittab'] = true;

If these settings are added to LocalSettings.php, they should be placed in the file after the include of Page Forms.

Note that some of the early MediaWiki skins, like Cologne Blue, contain hard-coded links to "Edit this page", that can't be removed or renamed by the Page Forms code.

Further tab customization

Every tab has an HTML ID, so tabs can be further customized on a site-wide basis using CSS or JavaScript in your site's MediaWiki:Common.css or MediaWiki:Common.js, or on individual pages with the CSS extension. For example, you can hide the edit and view tabs by adding the following to your MediaWiki:Common.css page:

#ca-view, #ca-edit { display: none !important; }
