Description: PmWiki currently comes with the ability to generate backlinks via the (:pagelist:) markup, but it might be worthwhile to provide an ?action=backlinks shortcut.

I'm currently using [[{$Name}?action=search&q=link={$FullName} | $[{Namespaced}]]] in my header to turn the page name into a link for backlinks. While this works fine, it does use the search feature to provide the backlinks and is not quite as clean as it could be with an ?action=backlinks shortcut that provides the backlinks without the search engine text.

I am casting my vote for this. I feel that having ?action=backlinks would be easier for the user and cleaner for the system. Ian MacGregor

I concur with Ian MacGregor; For the expected development time invested this would seem a strong feature. - Feral March 06, 2007, at 03:14 PM
