When you have topic preferences in a template topic such as a local Sandbox.WebTopicEditTemplate, and you create a new topic in that web, the new topic has lost the topic preferences settings of the template topic.

  • In preview, pass on URL parameter metapreferences as a hidden form field named metapreferences
  • In save, put topic preferences in URL parameter metapreferences into meta data
