[pmwiki-users] Re edit templates: auto update dates?

I use a whole bunch of immediate substitutions from guibuttons (actually 
links) on edit forms like this:

$GUIButtons['attach'] = array(1101, 'Uploads:{$Group}/','','',' 

or these:

$GUIButtons['datestamp'] = array(1405, '', '', '($CustomDate)',' [date 
stamp] ');
$GUIButtons['authordatestamp'] = array(1406, '', '', '($Author - 
$CustomDate)',' [author date stamp] ');

..and they're very popular.

Intuitively, I would think that some kind of call from 
GroupName.Template.php would be the place for immediate substitution of 
template variables, though I'm not sure how it would get wired up.


or in OO



BTW my new webhost looks really good. I'm getting a 40% performance 
improvement, and service seems as solid as a rock. Now I'm totally 
chomping at the bit to employ your new features (having finally upgraded 
from 2.1.27).

All the best,

- Henrik
