When you create a page from a html page, you will see the epoz edit form but the page type field shows structured text (unless you have limited the allowed_page_types).

Don't see this problem on zwiki.org --frank, Wed, 21 Feb 2007 12:48:57 +0000 reply

...and allowed_page_types hasn't been set, at least not on zwiki.org.

can't reproduce... won't fix! --betabug, Wed, 21 Feb 2007 14:06:56 +0000 reply

Closing this. Unless someone can show us what exactly has to be done to reproduce this I don't understand what's happening at all. Simon, do you still remember the details or has this been fixed along the way?

Still a bug I think, click the HtmlSubPage? page creation link on EpozTest, you'll see the page type is restructured text, I think we'd expect it to be HTML.

I think I was confused. On this site, creating a page from a html page shows a create form with restructured text selected - the default page type for this wiki. That's the intended behaviour. Of course it would be a nice enhancement to show/hide the wysiwyg controls in real time as you change the page markup option.

...or otherwise, let the create form select the page type based on the creating page. Shouldn't be too hard, but more a wishlist item than anything else.

It's really a thing of "defined behaviour" --betabug, Fri, 18 May 2007 04:53:12 -0700 reply

Either you want the new page's type based on the "default pagetype for the wiki" (as it is now), or you want it to use the page type of the current page.

My preference is with the current behaviour, because if a wiki encourages RST pagetype, as soon as someone makes a single html page, that pagetype is going to spread like cancer.

Agreed, good point.
