Okay, here's a puzzler for people who understand conditional tables better than I do. I have a template called tardis:template:job table. It's kind of a "gestalt" template, in that it passes certain bits of its output through other templates through SMW, and then re-assembles the output of those templates into a completed table. What I need is to somehow get a variable called {{{label}}} to be passed from tardis:template:job table to tardis:template:job table head.

In other words, a person types {{job table|label=This is a custom table header}}. Somehow, I then need to get "This is a custom table header" to the part of {{job table head}} of my choosing, because {{job table head}} creates the table headers for the table that ultimately gets re-assembled by {{job table}}.

Is this sort of thing even possible? Can you use one template to pass a variable to another template? czechout@Wikia    fly tardis  <span style="">15:05: Tue 15 May 2012

{{A|sure, why not}}

B says: sure, why not

If you go by SMW:Help:Template format, it is not possible.--PedroM 16:13, May 15, 2012 (UTC)
