Add variable to show the topmost level in the tree of subpages
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: misza

Please create an equivalent of {{BASEPAGENAME}} that cuts not only the last level of a page's name but all the way up to the "ground" level.

For example, on page [[User talk:Example/Archives/2008/January]]:

  • {{BASEPAGENAME}} returns "Example/Archives/2008"
  • proposed {{REALBASEPAGENAME}} (or whatever you name it) returns just "Example"

(Don't forget the URL-friendly {{REALBASEPAGENAMEE}}.)

{{ROOTPAGENAME}} would be great! Please?

Is a {{ROOTPAGENAME}} still necessary if #titleparts does this?

Would be easier to remember {{ROOTPAGENAME}}...

Ok, how about we restore r30413 but without the extra PARENTPAGENAME alias?

How about we add ParserFunctions to core? ;)

Any chance of getting this one done? ;P

Seeing as its quite easy

You mean that this still hasn't been added yet? :O

There is a template on Wikipedia that could use {{ROOTPAGENAME}}, so please do this.

Titleparts has been available for how long now, what is the problem?

I suspect the bug being open/people not knowing about it...

For peoples info...

So, its whether people accept that as a solution (fine if the wiki has parser functions), or if something should still go in core...

{{ROOTPAGENAME}} works nowadays.
