There are many applications of Data Forms that can never be realised until ListPages can be nested. Since ListPages will never be able to be nested, these applications will never see the light of day. In the absence of ListPages then, why not extend [[include]] to allow constructions that are otherwise impossible?
- You have a Pro site, with per-site profiles. (Or a free site and pretend you do.) You could make those profiles Data Forms and use fields from them, (for example game-rank, or forum signature), throughout the site. However if the site has any complexity at all, most of those uses are already inside ListPages invocations. A forum signature is only of use on a forum, and that is certainly built with ListPages.
- You use Data Forms as a database of objects. You want to refer to one of these objects from within a page-based forum — At the moment you would have to use an iframe or be satisfied with a link, both of which present the entire page, and that may be more than you want.
There are several ways this could be done, some of which I have described:
Here is another one:
... Wikidot code ...
Where Wikidot code
can contain an [[include]]
But any way that we can use Data Forms with [[include]]s would be great.
