  • Edit any topic
  • Hit "cancel"
  • You end up in WebHome instead of remaining in the cancelled topic

I believe this behaviour was changed for the usecase of cancelling the creation of a new, non existing page (directing to webhome instead of cancelling back to "This Wiki topic does not exist yet").

I guess the two usecases needs to be handled seperately (with regards to "Cancel").

No, it was my fault. SVN 8053


just for clarification, what should happen when you cancel a new page is it should go back to the parent topic (if the create link from another page was clicked), otherwise it should go to WebHome.

is that what's currently happening?


I think this is a sensible spec:

  • Cancel on existing topic:
    • Back to view of same topic
  • Cancel on not existing topic:
    • Back to parent if set, else back to %HOMETOPIC%

The current behaviour is just fine, AFAICT. Will, Peter, can I ask that before proposing spec changes you check out the current spec, rather than reporting bugs that I then have to go and verify, wasting time I could be using to fix other bugs and/or have a life?



Crawford, thanks for fixing the bug I reported here. And great that the current spec is exactly like the sensible spec I outlined (I was answering Will's question).

I also would like to have a life, working on twiki 5 to 10 hours every day :-/ (scratching had)

-- PTh

crawford, what are you talking about? i wasn't proposing changing the spec, i was trying to reiterate what the spec is.

Peter, Cancel on an existing topic doesn't apply, because this is about creating new pages oh, sorry, i guess that wasn't completely specified earlier, but that's what i was referrng to. sorry if i added some confusion...
