I think it would be very useful, above all for template writers, if it were possible to specify an optional parameter to the following pages:

I think on something like

This would permit for example to add a new post with given category, a new page with given mother category, etc.

+1 to that. And for every editor screen, too: post, page, link, category, tag.

For each variable, if isset $_GET[var] then assign that to var as the default

In case in helps... I use the following code in one of my plugins:

	 * Usage: extract(utils::extract($vars), EXTR_SKIP);
	 * @param $vars variables to fetch from $_POST or $_GET
	 * @return void

	function extract($vars) {
		if ( $_POST ) {
			$arr = '_POST';
		} else {
			$arr = '_GET';
		foreach ( $vars as $var ) {
			$$var = isset($GLOBALS[$arr][$var])
				? stripslashes_deep($GLOBALS[$arr][$var])
				: '';
		return compact($vars);
	} # extract()

I strongly disagree with the "no interest". I'm really waiting for this: when you have a complex page structure, this would allow to add the ability to create a new page as a subpage of the current one. Among other things.

I didn't know we are supposed to add "me too!" comments when we come across a ticket we would like solved/implemented.

Please reopen.

What it means is that there has been no interest by anyone to write a patch to add this functionality. As an Open Source project WordPress relies on the community to write code and submit patches. Maybe Later means that the community is not opposed to it but the community has noone interested at this time to write the code.

New features that lack the interest for several years with no patches are often closed like this. Closing as "won't fix" means the community does not want the feature or the bug is not going to be fixed due to its other benifits.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
