The develop.twiki.org TWiki failed when adding a comment with default comment box.


  • TWiki.Commentplugin calls TWiki::Func::expandVariablesOnTopicCreation() just with text, without web and topic parameter (as documented)
  • TWiki::expandVariablesOnTopicCreation calls expandAllTags( $this, \$etext, $theTopic, $theWeb ) with undefined web and tropic parameters


  • In TWiki::expandVariablesOnTopicCreation, define web and topic if missing.
  • Add optional web and topic parameters to TWiki::Func::expandVariablesOnTopicCreation()
