Description: If we're assuming javascript, then a simpler approach is probably to place all of this useful behavior on to the existing "Attach file" button in the edit form. So then the sequence would be:

  • Author presses "Attach file" in the button bar
  • A window pops up showing the list of available attachments for the page (perhaps with navigational elements to find attachments for other pages or groups)
  • Selects the file to be attached
  • The javascript then inserts "Attach:author_selection.txt Δ" directly into the edit page at the current cursor position.
