[Mediawiki-l] template question

Hello All,

I'm pushing the MW software for our IT department documentation needs and there's one bit of functionality that I'm having trouble implementing.  Currently, we've got articles setup for each project with info as to status, timelines, projected dates, source code locations, etc.  I've also used the dynamic page list extension to have a "main" project page that will list all the projects in the Current_Projects category and the date of their last edit.

What I would like to be able to do is to include several custom variables on each project page, like status, priority or owner, and have those displayed along with the page title in the main projects page.  Basically a summary of all the current projects, which will probably end up in some sort of table, but I'm not concerned with the asthetics at this point.

Any thoughts on the best way to go about this would be much appreciated!  My emphasis is on making it easy for the users to edit/create these project pages, otherwise I'll never be able to ween them off their excel spreadsheet!

Thanks,
Taylor
