Auto-create a discussion page. Something like WikiPedia ? :

 <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('DiscussionSuffix' , 'Discussion'                  )">
 <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('SuffixLength'     , _.len(DiscussionSuffix)       )">
 <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('ViewText'         , 'View&nbsp;Page'              )">
 <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('DiscussText'      , 'Discuss&nbsp;This&nbsp;Page' )">
 <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('CreateText'       , 'Create&nbsp;Discussion'      )">
 <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('pagename','%s' % _['title_or_id'])">
 <dtml-if "pagename[-SuffixLength:] == DiscussionSuffix">
   <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('basename','[%s]' % pagename[:-SuffixLength])">
   <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('basenameblk','%s' % pagename[:-SuffixLength])">
   <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('linkname',pageWithFuzzyName(basenameblk,ignore_case=1).getId() )">
   <a href="&dtml-URL1;/&dtml-linkname;"><dtml-var ViewText></a><br>
 <dtml-else>
   <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('discussname','[%s%s]' % (pagename,DiscussionSuffix))">
   <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('discussnameblk','%s%s' % (pagename,DiscussionSuffix))">
   <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('discusswiki',wikilink(discussname))">
   <dtml-if "_.string.find(discusswiki,discussname) == -1">
     <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('linkname',pageWithFuzzyName(discussnameblk,ignore_case=1).getId() )">
     <a href="&dtml-URL1;/&dtml-linkname;"><dtml-var DiscussText></a><br>
   <dtml-else>
     <dtml-if "AUTHENTICATED_USER.has_permission('Zwiki: Edit pages',this())">
       <a href="&dtml-URL0;/editform?page=&dtml-discussnameblk;"><dtml-var CreateText></a><br>
     </dtml-if>
   </dtml-if>
 </dtml-if>

Very nice feature! Thanks! - Have you done it also in [ZPT]??

Re: ZPT --Ducker, 2003/02/20 00:19 GMT
It's a stand alone dtml-method on my system (I called it discusslinker), which gets called from standard_wiki_header. I have no experience with ZPT, so I won't be doing this anytime soon, but the logic isn't that difficult so it should be pretty straighforward to do:

 if on discussion page:
   Action: Go-To main page
      Preface text:  View Page:
      Linking text:  wikilink(basename)
 else on main page:
   if discussion page already exists:
     Action: Go-To discussion
       Preface text:  Discuss Page:
       Linking text:  wikilink(discussname)
   else discussion page doesn't yet exist:
     if user has edit rights:
       Action: Create discussion
         Preface text:  Create Discussion:
         Linking text:  wikilink(discussname)
     else user doesn't have edit rights:
       Action: NO DISPLAY
