The ParentPageLink extension add a boilerplate page-link to the parent page upon editing a new page.

For example, creating a new article on the Main_Page will produce the following code at the bottom.

=Internal Links=
<i>Parent Article:</i> [[Main Page]]<br />

Articles created in the new article will have the new article as the parent and so on down. This allows traceability from any article to the Main_Page (root) and provides some context for the article's creation.
