The InputBox extension allows to automatically create a new page via an input field with a specific page name and - optionally - in a specific namespace.

A typical example of this is creating meeting minutes that follow a consistent content structure. The following code can be added to the source code of a page:

prefix=Meeting:IT/Jour fixe/
preload=Meeting:Standard minutes
buttonlabel=New minutes
arialabel=New minutes

Description of the settings:

type create Creates a new page
default Suggestion for a name for the new page; here in the example: current edate
prefix Seitenpfad Path to a namespace or subpage.
preload Pfad zur Vorlage Loads the default text for the new page from a template, if you are not using a template, this line can be deleted. If the template is not found, a blank page is created.
buttonlabel Text Text that is shown on the button.
break no Places the button behind the text field rather than below.
width 30 Size of the inputbox in characters
useve true Opens the new page directly in visual editing mode

Show latest minutes

If you want to display links to the last 5 meeting minutes by creation date directly below the input box, you can add the following query in the source code below the input box, specifying the path to the logs in the square brackets in the #ask query (i.e. the prefix-path from the inputbox followed by a *:

List of minutes:
{{#ask:[[~IT/Jour Fixe/*]]
|sort=creation date
|default=There are currently no minutes
|searchlabel= &#8594; More IT-Jour Fixe minutes
