Very nice!!!
How about adding some sort of metadata type annotation to allow for more specific metadata for elements - say, checkboxes for boolean variables, comboboxes for pre-defined lists of values, and default values?
One way to do that would be to define the type annotations in a separate page that the current page would refer to - perhaps through a pre-defined variable, say
{{{
[{SET __template="BugTemplate" }]
}}}
The editor would read the content of the template page before creating the wiki form used to edit current page metadata. It could contain something like:
{{{
| state | combobox-*open;closed;nobug
| priority | combobox-high;medium;low
| created | %currentDate%
| alert | checkbox
}}}
I will look into changing my [Tasks Plugin] to support the same syntax - this editor will be a great complement to it. Those variables are stored in the page metadata hashtable, right?

Tx, Nascif. I really like your proposal to have an external page with the default Metadata settings.
Probably a page called [[DefaultVariables] and [[DefaultPermissions] could serve this purpose.
I would like to keep the syntax a simple as possible :
{{{
|| Name || Type
| state | *open;closed;nobug
| priority | medium;low
| created | %currentDate%
| alert | true;false
| name | guest
}}}
Whether something is a combobox or checkbox, the system will decide by itself.
The %currentDate% is rather special; could we not just fallback on the standard [{CurrentTimePlugin}] for this ?
And why not use WikiForms plugins for the Type info? Just some ideas.
