Two ways to create a new topic works fine.

Two works not correctly.

These work

  • Create New Topic link in left bar works fine
  • Create new topic from NonExistingWikiWord works fine

In both these cases you end up with a topic in edit mode.

But these do not work well any longer

  • Write a URL to non-existing topic in URL line in browser
  • Write a non-existing topic name in Jump field

When you take these steps this happens.

  • First you submit the Jump or URL
  • You get the normal "Note: This topic does not exist" screen - so far so good
  • You click the link to "Create SomeTopic"
  • You now end up in the ...twiki/bin/view/Myweb/SomeTopic?create=on&newtopic=SomeTopic screen which is correct
  • This create screen contains no information. We are supposed to get a nice page where you can pick Topic Parent and Template. This creates a usability problem.

Release blocker.

My guess it this has something to do with the changes to WebTopicCreator, from topic to template. Any idea where create="on" is read?

How does create="on" lead to WebTopicViewTemplate?

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 16 Sep 2007

WebTopicViewTemplate behaves differently dependent on the create setting, that's all.

argh of course. I was searching in the lib folder.
