Accidentally hit "enter", and submitted this bug before filling out the title. Here it is:

This is a generalization of a flaw originally reported here:

https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=30034

Semantic Forms requires a workaround to post a template to a non-main namespace page. The workaround is to use the pagename parameter to manually fix the namespace. For the File namespace, it would look like this:

page name=File:<SomeFileTemplate[FileFormField]>

Maybe a "full page name" parameter would be the way to go in solving this. Or perhaps having an upload field contain the "File:" portion of the namespace behind the scenes.

I renamed this bug to "Fields for uploaded images should include "File:" namespace", for clarity.

This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
