Description

There is a regular way to create new wiki pages is by adding a link to non-existing page and than click this link. As for now after saving new page the parent field is empty.
It will be great if parent page will be the previous one (the page that we come from) by default.

This seems a great option to me, though I don't think it should be the default option. I rather would like it to be implemented as another option along the "Submit" and "Preview" control-elements. Like the implementation of the "Create" and "Create and continue" controls when creating new issues...

  • Tracker changed from Defect to Feature

I agree with Mischa, making it the default option can cause a user to create a deep wiki without them knowing. For example:

homepage
|_ Page one
   |_ Page two
      |_ Page three

  • File 3108_automatic_parent.diff added

See attached file for a proposal. But maybe it would be better to let administrators at project level decide if parent page is set automatically or not by default. Or even decide that parent page is set automatically "below X levels" in the hierarchy.. Any thought about this ?

Feature added in r8255. I added a checkbox instead of a new submit button, so this can be changed later to a regular field for parent page selection (#6449).

Just check the check box when creating the page:
