It's a not yet. I came to the following form:

(:fox newentry template=Test2.EditForm redirect=1:)
(:input hidden target '{$$(serialname Test2)}' :)
(:input submit post "Create New Entry":)
(:foxend newentry:)

Which makes the new entry. Another user will make the next entry. This is not really the kind of conflict management I wanted, but there is this another problem: It already made the entry!! It makes them and views them. I need to start it as an edit. 

And, if possible, if you cancel the edit, or go back with the browser, the page never existed. Thinking about this made me come to the conclusion I'll need some fox (?) in the template too. When users are editing the same page (serialname gives the same serial number if the page not exists yet) there must be something on that page to ensure they save with different names? 

I tried adding (:input hidden action edit:) in the above form, but then it ceased working at all.

Is it important what's on the template? (it's all markup from dataquery and the page is only functional in edit mode)
