template transclusion

Thanks Simon for working on fixing the edit link on Template:Occupy Portland Event, and sorry for not getting back to this sooner! It looks like you've come to the same conclusion I have: that automatically linking to the transcluded page is impossible (confirmation from one of the developers here). I saw that you added another field to the template ("page"), which allows the editor to hardcode the page name, allowing an edit link to come up. Thanks for doing that! Though it's an imperfect solution, it's the best one I've been able to think of too. Do you mind if I take that edit link and tweak it so it looks like one of the "[improve]" links beside section headers? You're the main person who uses the template so I'll defer to your preference.

Thanks again for working on this.
