To reproduce:
  • Register a test user, say TestUserA
  • Create Sandbox.TestUserASandbox topic (from user homepage)
  • Rename TestUserA to TestUserB without fixing links in Sandbox web
  • Go to Sandbox.TestUserASandbox topic
  • Go to "more" screen
  • Section "Set new topic parent" has this for "Current parent:"
    IF{ "NONEMain.TestUserA=NONE" else="Main.TestUserA" then="(none)" }: Bad expression at .TestUserA=NONE

-- TWiki:Main/PeterThoeny - 22 Feb 2007

This is due to a syntax error in the pattern skin templates.

%MAKETEXT{"Current parent:"}% %IF{"'NONE%SEARCH{ "^%TOPIC%$" scope="topic" regex="on" nosearch="on" nototal="on" format="$parent" }%'='NONE'" then="(none)" else='%SEARCH{ "^%TOPIC%$" scope="topic" regex="on" nosearch="on" nototal="on" format="[[$web.$parent][$parent]]" }%' }%
works a lot better.
