the issue is that the portlet can't "see" the posted data unless it is posted as part of a render or action request targeted to this particular portlet.
In other words: the action="post-url-here" must be an action URL in the sense of a portlet action url , so add that token to the URL and it should work.
I'm more than alarmed, however, about the way you did this. It would be much cleaner and less error prone if the portlet itself could take over the URL manipulation, since it is the only instance that knows how to form correct URLs ....
If I got your solution right i had to add 'ctrl:type=action' to action url, right ? If yes... it is not working :/
I even tried to add 'ctrl:type=render' to the urls to be able to get parameters by request.getParameter()... but it is not working. It's very strange, because i remember doing this in he past and parameters were accesible.
Maybe it is something with the portal version ? Now i use 2.0 final and then it was 2.0 RC1 as far as i remember. Maybe now i should do something more than just adding a tag to get it work (something to change in some xmls - no idea) ?
The reason i do it that way, then changing whole JSPWiki code is that i wanted to leave oportunity to upgrade to the newst version of jspwiki as easy as possible.
anyway thank you very much for reply,
