parsing template data


Hello,
Apologies if this has been asked before. I've been hunting but not found anything yet on mediawiki,
Wikipedia, or the discussion list archive.

Is it possible to parse or call the data from template A on page X, and spit parts of it back out using another
template (say, template B) on page Y, and in a different namespace? For the sake of argument, assume there
is only one template A iteration on page X.

For example,

Template A
{{bookdata
 | image       = no
 | maplink     = Image:Title_p82.gif
}}

Template B

{{mapdata 
 | maplink = [call from bookdata]
}}

It seems like there should be a way to do this, so if it means reading manuals on something I'd be happy to. At
this point I'm just not sure which direction I should be going to read up on this.

Thanks for any advice.

Craig

Regarding WYSIWYG in mediawiki

Hi,

Some how i was able to install tiny mce as wysiwyg plugin for media wiki . But i am facing one issue, I am not able to embed any flash files there.

The images are getting inserted properly, But incase of flash i do not why the HTML tag < is getting converted to &lt;

Does any body know how to fix this. Please let me know.


Thanks

Because when you see a "<" on the editing screen you get a "<" when
viewing the page, that's what WYSIWYG means. You'll have to go into
the source code of the page to add complicated bits, unless there is
an option in your WYSIWYG program to add flash. Typing HTML into a
WYSIWYG will just get you HTML out the other end - that's the whole
point.
