[pmwiki-users] Passing blocks of markup to an include

We have built-in PageTextVariables, see documentation:


In your page:

   (:include Template.MyTemplate param1="{*$:Var1}" :)

   (:Var1:my markup block:)

The above will work exactly as if you wrote:

   (:include Template.MyTemplate param1="my markup block" :)

Note that the include markup doesn't expect line breaks in the 
parameters, so your variable you can be a line, not a multiline block.

If I need to pass a multiline block, I would try passing a page section 
to be included by the included page, something like:

   (:include Template.MyTemplate param1="SomePage#start#end" :)

and then Template.MyTemplate has a line like this:

   (:include {$$param1}:)

And SomePage contains something like:

   This is line 1.
   Line 2.
