branch if you go to TWikiPreferences
(the one in Main) - you must be logged in as admin to do this - and click the Edit Preferences button you get the correct change to a form based settings entry.
But try saving. Then you get a mysterious "This topic does not exist page that says: The topic 'Jump' you are trying to access does not exist, yet.
The URL is the preferences URL but I get this strange error.
In MAIN branch I get a
TWiki detected an internal error - please check your TWiki logs and webserver logs for more information.
Can't call method "renderForEdit" on an undefined value
It also seems someone removed the button from
. Maybe to not encourage editing the TWiki web. But someone changed something so that the plugin no longer works.
This plugin was the argument for deprecating and removing form based settings so it has to work. Therefore urgent release blocker.

I know the root cause of this one and I have a fix coded.
Need to run some more testing and run unit tests before I check it in.

I ended up spending a lot of time on this trying regex a fix. But it required a little code.
I found and fixed 3 bugs.
- Preferences Plugin would also create fields inside html comment adding the inside the HTML comment. Result was that forms were mixed up and you ended up at a jump page. Now only visible fields become edit fields
- The plugin had a problem with editing fields that were not defined in the template if a template is used.
- And finally fixed the TWikiPreferences so it calls the form in TWiki web
Unit tests have been extended to catch the html comment bug
Tested that the plugin also works in 4.1.2
