I don't see how {{EDITURL}} would be useful - if it's blank, you'll still have a visible link which just goes to no url - why not just always have a link and just have the usual perms error. --Nad 19:16, 5 Feb 2007 (NZST)

Yes that would be bad. But what if you want to have a custom link to edit? Say 'hack this' insted of 'edit'. I have also had some thoughts about editing. If all MW edit controls are enclosed in a certain class it should be possible to hide/show all elements on a page. In this way you have a special link that causes all the editing controls to appear. Then when you're finished editing, it can hide them all again, showing the page as it realy is. --Rob 21:16, 5 Feb 2007 (NZST)
Yeah that would be easy, just use an expandable table enclosed in a div of certain class so you can change the css of the expandable to a single link - or some similar solution... --Nad 22:56, 5 Feb 2007 (NZST)

What about {{EDIT}}, {{XMLPROPERTIES}} ? --Rob 09:34, 4 Feb 2007 (NZST)

{{CURRENTUSER}} seems to be missing at the moment --Sven 06:33, 22 Jan 2007 (NZST)
