This page converts a url into a dialog action request. A faster, but less general, form of this facility is provided by dialog action do.

Two url query parameter names are reserved; all other url query parameters are converted into dialog parameters. Required url query parameter dialog-action names the action to be requested. Optional url query parameter dialog-confirm if present causes the page to request confirmation from the user before sending the action request. If parameter dialog-confirm is present, the action request is authenticated; if parameter dialog-confirm is not present, the action request is not authenticated.

As presently implemented, this is a slow operation. Use of a dialog button already incurs a substantial time delay while loading the target-action page; following a link to this page incurs double the delay, first loading page Wikibooks:Dialog and then loading the target-action page.
