Pretty Tracker in a Wiki Page

is a way to describe the Pretty Tracker functionality pulling tracker fields into wiki pages and displaying them any way you want.

This page explains how to use a tracker with the special field: page selector which allows you to associate additional info to a wiki page via a tracker.
A page selector field looks like a normal text box. The text you type into a page selector field associated that tracker item with the wiki page of that name. If the page does not exist it will be created.

Once the item is saved, and the page selector field matches the name of a wiki page, the tracker item can then be displayed on that page using the PluginTrackerlist.

Tutorial #2 - Input and Output on the same pages

- Set automatic feeding=1 by typing the number 1 into the field below “page selector”

Example : my tracker 88 has these 3 fields

2. Next, I can paste this code into a new wiki page named Tracker88 and get a Pretty Tracker wiki page.

[tracker88]

{TRACKERLIST(trackerId=88, fields=387:388:389, view=page, max=-1, wiki=tracker page selector tpl) /}
!To change the info of the page
{TRACKER(trackerId=88, fields=387:389, view=page)}Info has been changed{TRACKER}


3. To get this code to work with your tracker, you will need to replace trackerId=88 with the specific number for your tracker. To find your tracker ID#, go to your Admin Tracker page and to the left of the tracker name is the Tracker Id#.

4. You will also need to replace fields=387:388:389, with the specific fields for your tracker. To find your tracker field#’s, go to your Admin Tracker page, click on the tracker that you are working with, and then click on this button at the top of the page “Edit this Trackers fields”. On this next page, to the left of each tracker field is the tracker field Id#.

The first time, the page will look like this:

and would look like this after the info is entered
