Item4491: Using searches in forms doesn't work - in classic edit mode everything is fine

Edit Form Data

I use the following search to display checkboxes in one of my forms:

| Verwendete Datenbanken | checkbox | 3 | %SEARCH{"^OrclDB" scope="topic" nonoise="on" regex="on" type="regex" format="$topic" separator=", " }% | | |

The search works as expected when I use the classic text editor, but when I use Kupu I get the following errror:

---+ TWiki Installation Error
Incorrect format of searchformat template (missing sections? There should be 4 %SPLIT% tags)

This applies to all my forms. It worked for some time, but somehow it stopped working. Unfortunately I don't know what I did wrong. Is there some way to debug this? I have to fix that because everytime one of our users opens a topic in kupu the data in the forms gets overwritten with the error (if it's a selection list...).

KupuContrib Version: 14121 (14 Jun 2007)

Any help would be great!

Unfortunately I don't know what I did wrong - well, it would have been helpful to know what you did. Please create a cut-down example of the problem in the LitterTray web, so I don't waste hours trying to reproduce your problem. Thanks!


Here are the steps I made to reproduce the problem:

1. Create a form (SearchtestForm)

2. Create a template with that form (SearchtestTemplate)

3. Create topics based on that template (SearchtestTopic)

Instead of pages beginning with 'A', I get an error. This only happens within kupu not in the text edit mode. See for yourself: Try to edit SearchtestTopic via WYSIWYG smile

OK, I understand, thanks. This problem is localised to KupuContrib, and is probably due to the kupu skin. Confirmed.

As a workaround, use TWiki:Plugins.TinyMCEPlugin for WYSIWYG. I will not be able to fix this for some time (if at all)


Kupu is now second-string, so dropping prio to Normal


I am no longer supporting the KupuContrib. Please use the TinyMCEPlugin instead.
