Item1759 added the ability to specify specific user templates when using bulk registration. The changes got lost in a major merge from 4.0.x; I added them back as best I could in item 2258, although last I tried they still weren't working quite right. (The item begs for help. Sigh.)

At any rate, I've added a comment for an unimplemented test in test/unit/RegisterTests, which is all that this item is actually about. Hopefully someone will fix problems with the custom templates and someone will either write a unit test for this feature or help me to do so. (I have never worked in a company that used unit tests, my perl isn't strong enough to figure out on my own how to do it in TWiki, and I'm under considerable time pressure.)


Meredith, this report reads like "I wrote some code, but didn't write any tests, now it's broken, and I can't be arsed fixing it. Tough". I don't expect such an unprofessional approach from you.

Learn to write unit tests, please. It's trivial, especially when you are extending a set of existing tests. "I never learnt" is no excuse; we all have to learn other people's unit tests in order to extend them!!!


Maybe it's trivial to you, Crawford, but it's not to me. I looked at the unit test code and didn't have the first idea what to do. When I'm stuck, I ask for help. If there's none to be had, what am I supposed to do?


Discarded, as DEVELOP is no longer supported
