Hopefully this won't be too confusing, because I am not to familiar with the terminology. I'll try to explain what I'm looking for:
I have a local install of Media Wiki, and there is a type of page that our users will be adding frequently - it is like a journal page for a certain day, where they can log their activities for that day.
I want each Journal page to be in a certain format, for example:
Page Title is today's date Who: UsersName When: today's date What: What activity the user did
I also want it to include some [[Category:]] tags as well.
What I would like to have is some sort of skeleton or template page that the user can go to and clone a copy and just "fill in the blanks". That way they don't have to worry about missing a section or a category tag, etc.
I researched templates on the mediawiki site, but those are more like sub pages that you can include in multiple pages (as I understand).
I researched Stub pages on the wikipedia site, but those look more like placeholders for a page that you want someone to build. Okay, I could build a stub page for every day of the year, but the problem is that entries will only need to be filled in on probably 50 random days of a year, so there are 315 wasted stub pages.
I would have to think there is an extension or something that can do what I'm looking for, but I can't find it, or I don't know the correct terms to search for it.
Does anyone know what I'm talking about or have any ideas?
Thanks so much!
