WildcardLinkSyntax

Ideas I'd like to implement:

  • Do a restore on multiple pages based on when they were vandalized (00790) (this capability now exists using wikish)
  • Implement a (small!) number of basic formulae that can be used to do calculations on a table (=sum(), =avg(), etc.)
  • Work on the documentation of WikiForms.
    • Some time way in the future I've thought about a WikiForm2 recipe which would build on WikiForms but with the data structure definition separated from the form definition. Probably something similar to ViewTemplates but working for an edit form. Then some other improvements in selection in wikilist, etc.
  • PTV caching (under development with PageListPlus)
