Once a page is created with the "builder - Create Child" macro how can I edit the name w/o creating a new page.

I am trying to combine the {Create-Child} macro with a series of templates (that use scaffolding) to build a group of pages from a single start point. The actual create action works beautifully but if you need to edit the name of the child page that was created it actually creates a NEW child with the new name, it doesn't edit the existing child page.

I found some information on an old forum (http://forums.atlassian.com/thread.jspa?threadID=35715) about how to allow for the PARENT page to be editied but this doesn't seem to work for the child pages.

Any assistance would be most welcome.

I'm doing something similar to this. I don't quite follow what you mean, when you say you need to edit the name of the child page. I haven't tried that in what I am doing. I use the {create-child} macro, nested in another macro that takes parameters. The {create-child} macro is nested in a {run-now} macro. This "silently" creates the scaffolded page without actually visiting the page. Then, I can go in later and update the scaffolded page.

      {create-child:$paramlname, $paramfname|parent=$init|template=TAInformation}
