Actions

Actions are tools that work on a page or the whole wiki, but unlike macros do not add to the page content when viewing a page, but work on that page content. They either produce some output based on page contents (navigational actions like searching) or implement functions that are not related to viewing a page (like deleting or renaming a page).

There is a set of system-defined actions, which includes page editing; you can extend the set of known actions by your own ones. See HelpForDevelopers for more on that.

The following actions are added to the list of user-defined extension actions at the bottom of each page. This happens to any mixed-case extension, for other actions (all lower-case) see the list further down this page. Some of these action might not be available for your wiki site.

  • DeletePage: Delete a page, after you confirmed it; deletion means a final backup copy is created and only then the page is deleted, i.e. you can revive the page later on (as long as the backups are not physically deleted).

  • LikePages: list pages whose title starts or ends with the same MeatBall:WikiWord as the current page title.

  • AttachFile: attach files to a page, see /AttachFile for more details.

  • LocalSiteMap: show nearby links of the current page, i.e. list all referred-to pages, and in turn their references, to a certain limited depth.

  • SpellCheck: call the spell checker for the current page; see HelpOnSpellCheck for more.

The following is a list of internal actions that are used to implement the various icons and links at the top and bottom of pages, or supplement certain macros.

  • titleindex: Implements the listing of all page names as text or (?action=titleindex) or XML (?action=titleindex&mimetype=text/xml); the main use of this action is to enable MeatBall:MetaWiki.

  • fullsearch: this action is triggered by clicking on the "Go" button of the FullSearch macro (?action=fullsearch&value=HelpOnActions).

  • titlesearch: this action is triggered by clicking on the "Go" button of the TitleSearch macro (?action=titlesearch&value=HelpOnActions).

  • inlinesearch: this implements the inline search for the form fields at the bottom of each page (note that this uses POST requests, so you won't normally see this action in URLs). [0.11]

  • highlight: highlight the search word when you click on a link in a search result list.
  • diff: display differences between page revisions.
  • info: show meta-data on a page.
  • recall: display an older revision of a page.
  • show: display a page (the default action).
  • refresh: refresh the cached version of a page (currently only used on XSLT-formatted pages).
  • print: show the print-view of a page, which omits the navigational items from the display view.
  • edit: edit this page.
  • savepage: save this page (do not ever use this manually).
  • subscribe: subscribe to a page. [0.11]

  • userform: save user preferences.
  • bookmark: set bookmark for RecentChanges.

  • formtest: used for development. [0.11]

  • raw: send the raw wiki markup as text/plain (e.g. for backup purposes via wget); SystemInfo?action=raw shows the markup of SystemInfo.

  • format: emit specially formatted views of a page.
  • rss_rc: generate a RSS feed of RecentChanges. [0.11]

  • chart: display charts. [0.11]

  • dumpform: used for development. [0.11]

  • export: export the wiki content. [experimental]

  • content: for transclusion into static web pages, this action emits the pure page content, without any <html>, <head>, or <body> tags. [1.0]

  • links: generates a list of all pages and the links on them, just like MeatBall:LinkDatabase. [1.0]

  • xmlrpc: Wiki XML-RPC interface, see MeatBall:XmlRpcToWiki. [1.0]

  • revert: revert to an older version of the page. [1.1]
