Create from template macro shall render the new page

Hi everybody,

when I create a page using the "create from template"-macro I would like the macro to be replaced by the link to the new page.

Does anyone know a workaround or macro that leads to this result?

Thank you in advance!

Hi @Anna Knutsen

do you want to use the macro or do you want to have a button that looks like the macro but would lead to a new page?

If so it would be something like that:

## Macro title: AUI Button
## Macro has a body: N
## @param Title:title=Title|type=string|required=true
## @param URL:title=URL|type=string|required=true
<a href="$paramURL">
<button class="aui-button">

You can put in Create from template as title and the URL to the new page.  

Thanks @Fabienne_Gerhard  for your answer! I would like to have button though, where first a specific template is opened. After the user has filled the template and has saved it as a new page I would like the button to become a link to the new page.

So it shall basically be like the "create from template"-macro, but instead of always opening the template when you click on it, it shall open the newly created page, when the template was used...

Hi @Anna Knutsen

where do you want to put this button at? Because when you put it on your template it would just lead to the page just created (a loop ;) )

Better would be using macro 'Children Display' on main page with create from template macro button

Everytime you create a new page the new link is shown in Children display macro.

@Fabienne_Gerhard I would like to put the button in a table on a parent page where users shall create new content and link a child page. This child page shall be created with a certain template (that's why I came up with the "create from template"-button). After the user has created it, the "create from template"-button shall be replaced by the link of this new page. Just this one child shall be linked, not all of the Children of the page. That's why I think the "Children Display"-makro won't be useful here, will it?
