Hi Ernesto,

To me, that would be too much magic happening intransparently behind the 
scenes. How do you explain that to somebody who expects that f3:link 
outputs the link itself?

What it really does is overriding the href from the surrounding tag, 
which is almost the same of what is done in my example:
<a href="{f3:link:uriTo(controller='posts', action='editPost', 
parameter:postId='{postId}')}">Some link the templater knows about</a>

except that is clearly understandable that the href is actually filled 
in by the templating system.

So, I think we should discuss two different issues here:

1) How do we fix the array-access problem?

2) Do we want to have some "magic" manipulating surrounding tags as well?

What do you think? Does it make sense to split the questions up?
