Released In:


Twiki 4.1.2, Fedora Core 7 (updated 20 september 2007), perl 5.8.8, firefox and IE 6 browsers

Other than the standard plugins, I have ActionTracker and CommentPlugin plugins

When I edit the page with the following line:


I will get the action added to the table, as expected. However, the state of the item will not be editable (i.e. not a dropdown)

If I add another item, the first item becomes editable (i.e. a dropdown) but the second is not not editable.

If I edit an item before adding another item, it will never become editable.

Reassigned to action tracker, corrected headline


I can reproduce this on 4.2.0, RHEL4 EDIT - The COMMENT block above stole my comment, breaking the topic flow. Oops smile -- TWiki:Main.AaronFuleki - 21 Mar 2008

Weird. We had an action today that had an empty string for an id, which really confused the action tracker plugin (you couldn't edit the state).

Deleting thing id attribute and re-saving the topic seemed to work.

So, in further playing, it does indeed look like ActionTrackerPlugin does not actually parse topics when calling the "save" script directly. The only way I can get it to work is:

  • Make my comment template post to the "edit" script, then save it, or
  • Set a dummy uid on the task, which could be bad.

So, if you want one-click task creation, it looks like you need to supply your own uid, which sounds dangerous. I may just give all my tasks the same uid, and stick them in their own auto-incremented topics to avoid uid collisions. Still seems kludgey.

Fixed in the latest action tracker (released later today) - at least, I can't reproduce it!
