Required Form Fields for Templates?

Is it possible to make a form field a required input before it will allow a user to continue creating a page from a template? If not specifically form fields, is there some other sort of input prompting templating mechanism that requires something to be specified?

I'm using Confluence 4.0

To answer Mike's question,the Scaffolding plugin does offer this capability, and in Confluence v4.x.

This could be done in older versions of Confluence with Scaffolding plugin by inputting a required=true parameter on certain macros!

My question is is it possible to require an answer or selection using variables when creating templates in Confluence OnDemand. In OnDemand the form fields and drop-down lists disappear by default after Step 2. I am hoping it is possible to work around this issue.

Hi Mike,

Not sure if it is exactly what you are looking for but if I understand you correctly you could use User Macros. Essentially the whole content of a page (even if based on a template) can consist of a User Macro. Depending on how many forms you need filled you can specify the $body or $paramXXX as mandatory ultimately requiring the user to provide the information before creating the page.

Cheers,

TG.
