autonaming

With some types, you may be not want to have to think about naming each one.  The *autoname setting allows for the autogeneration of patterned names.

 
+example

To activate autonaming for the Attribute cardtype, we put some text and/or numbers here:

Attribute+*type+*autoname
an8

Then when you add an Attribute, Wagn will automatically name it with what's there, and increment by one for the next time an Attribute is added.

 
+howto

Use the *autoname setting on any Set of cards. Enter the card name you want to be generated first.

 

+tips
  • The value of +*autoname is incremented when the page to add a card of that type is generated, whether or not the card is ever actually created. If they ever are not created, there will be gaps in the series of names.
  • If you want a card of that type that's not autonamed, you can hand-construct a URL such as http://www.wagn.org/tastiness?type=Attribute

 

+discussion

Would someone mind adding an example here? I can't seem to get this working.


Does the above example help?

Esp the above

"Another way to give someone an account is on the Options tab of almost any card, where you can click on "Add a sign-in account for |card name|". Enter the email address of the person you'd like to give an account associated with that card, and they'll receive an invitation email. People who have permission to make Invitations (as described above) can add accounts to existing cards."

How has this changed with the new permissions settings?

The link to add an account was gone at first (unintentionally), but should be back now for any card controlled by an *accountable setting that is "yes". Not clear what this has to do with autonaming though?
