Then it's not a wiki though ;)

I did use the dialog.

Let me get this straight: for every dangling link Zim is supposed to display a placeholder where a page would be created if it was clicked? Then we'd have to recalculate all placeholders every time a new page is created.
It might also be prudent to make the link resolver ignore placeholders. I'm not through with the index code, but it seems that they end up in the database, so without that users would have to rebuild their index to get the fix above.
