Wiki Argument Variables

This syntax represents some variables which can be used in Tiki, like: user, page, itemId. With a simple Wiki Syntax using double curly brackets around them, (once this preference is enabled in "Editing & Plugins" control panel) you can put them in your wiki syntax enabled text area and have them to become automatically replaced by their actual value anywhere where they are used.

The feature must be set at : Admin (tiki-admin.php) -> Editing and Plugins -> Wiki argument variables

 Note about parsing of the Argument Variables
Because of their nature and the ability to be interpreted from the URL the Wiki argument variables need to be parsed as last, after all the parsing is done. So any argument variable like {{page}} will be interpreted inside any wiki plugin (e.g. PluginCode) or wiki syntax. To display a wiki argument variable unparsed you can escape the first bracket using the np (non parseable) tag: ~np~{~/np~{page}}.
