Comment:
This is the simplest example where user comment will be added to Help:InputBox/Sandbox, but user can change the page where comment will be added. It is also user responsibility to add section title on screen that will appear after button "New section" is pressed.


Comment to predefined page

Code:

{|
|-
|<inputbox>
type=comment
default=Help:InputBox/Sandbox
buttonlabel=Add comment to the Sandbox
hidden=yes
</inputbox>
|}

Comment:
The parameter hidden=yes is used to hide input box, so that user can add comment only to the page that we set with default=.
