Need MediaWiki help

Hey,

Any MediaWiki experts? I want to link not just to an article, but specifically to the edit page for it. Not really sure how to do it though...

can't you just click on Edit and link to that URL?

The magic formula is [{{SERVER}}{{localurl:{{NAMESPACE}}:{{PAGENAME}}|action=edit}} edit this page]

(If you wanted to do another specific page, say the AppleCare article, you would hardcode that bit with [{{SERVER}}{{localurl:AppleCare|action=edit}} edit AppleCare] )

iMeowbot: Thanks, that did the trick!

arn: What I was trying to do was to make it a bit easier for your "average" user to edit this page without getting mucked up in the html.
