Automatic topic parenting appears to be broken in 4.2. When viewing an existing topic and then clicking "Create New Topic" in WebLeftBar the new topic is not automatically parented to the previously viewed topic. To fix this issue change the "Create New Topic" link in WebLeftBar from:

  * [[%SCRIPTURLPATH{"view"}%/%BASEWEB%/WebTopicCreator?parent=%BASETOPIC%][ %ICON{"newtopic"}% %MAKETEXT{"Create New Topic"}%]]


  * [[%SCRIPTURLPATH{"view"}%/%BASEWEB%/WebTopicCreator?topicparent=%BASETOPIC%][ %ICON{"newtopic"}% %MAKETEXT{"Create New Topic"}%]]

gmc in the twiki IRC room gets credit for for finding the fix. There is also a question in Support web concerning the same topic, http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Support/ChildTopicsNotMadeUnderParent

-- TWiki:Main/GordonTerrell - 07 Jul 2008

The correct fix for 4.2.1 is

   * [[%SCRIPTURLPATH{"view"}%/%BASEWEB%/WebCreateNewTopic?topicparent=%BASETOPIC%][ %ICON{"newtopic"}% %MAKETEXT{"Create New Topic"}%]]

Will check in to SVN.

It is already fixed on Subversion. No action
