  • Submitting an empty value does not cause the parent to be set to none.
  • Choosing "none" from the pick list does not change anything either.
I have tried this with topics WebPreferences and WebStatistics

The form must pass a value, so submitting the empty field won't work. Save.pm expects 'none' as 'no parent'. This is not entirely intuitive when you look at the current form, but that goes beyond this report.

This was the bug in the pick list: the "orphaned topic" entry did pass an empty string instead of 'none'.
