{add-page} - Easy way to have this automatically insert the page link where this was pressed?

I have an "add-page" link that opens up a page template I created. This creates the child page and attaches it to its parent correctly.

I am wondering if it is possible to have this link also replace itself (or add just below itself) the new link to the new child page right where this link was pressed.

Is this possible?

I was able to get around this issue by using the "content by label" macro and then simply applying the targeted label within the "add-page" macro.

If the page will have a fixed name, you can use the {link-page} macro instead, and provide the name. That name can be built based on the parent page also if you like, using 'injection'. For example, if you have a parent page called 'Foo' and you want to add a child called 'Foo - Bar', you could do this:

{link-page:%page:title% - Bar|template=Bar Template|live=true}Bar{link-page}

When 'Foo - Bar' doesn't exist, it will be a 'create page' link, and when it does, it will link to the page instead.
