RegisMay added a comment to T209683: Page Forms extension: Creating a form does not show drop down boxes after editing..

You were indeed right! I did not see that I have to apply changes at two positions on the Wiki page defining the form - actually not the form, but the *template*. My sincere apologies!

No I haven't gotten anything wrong here. I'm setting up Wikis now for over a decade. And I don't use any URL rewriting as I don't see any reason for that. $wgArticlePath is even not set: It is left to be the default value as implemented by MW. The configuration is completely based on the default configuration provided by the MW setup process.

I assume properties are reused often, not only in my use case here. Simple but very useful mechanisms would be:

It seems that the page creation process provided by Page Forms is completely broken - see my other bug report. I've been using SMW for a decade now and - sorry to say that - I'm quite surprised to find the quality of the extension now to be so poor :-( It has never been perfect but now I even can't create new pages with forms. I can not use the current release - named stable - in a productive environment. Nevertheless I' be willing to assist as far as I can but I'd need a bit of advice how to be able to contribute.

Please note that form != form. There are HTML forms which are used to provide editing capabilities in web pages. And there are SMW Forms which enable the user to fill out a SMW form. Two completely different things. In this feature request here by "form" I'm referring to the HTML form the page contains where a user can edit the Wiki page.

To my understanding Page Forms does something completely different. Page Forms is the successor of Semantic Forms which displays a form. I don't want to display a form. I want to enable the user to enter a page name, click a button, and end up editing a fresh new page (without forms) where there is already content in the page. It's quite similar to what you get if you create an error report: The text form field offering you entering your bug report is prefilled with text. That's what everything is about in this feature request here.
