Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

The NewUserFormTemplate assignes the form %MAINWEB%.UserForm to each created user. The %MAINWEB% variable does not get expanded when instanciating a user topic and remains in the meta data as:

But this will freak out the engine if the DBCacheContrib is installed and used by a plugin that tries to generate a WebDB from the form data with the message "bad map expression".

Possible fixes:

  1. remove %MAINWEB% from the NewUserFormTemplate's meta data
  2. expand the %MAINWEB% variable when instanciating templates in general
  3. fix the DBCacheContrib to cope with "unpleasant" form names

I'd opt for (1) as it is a simple change. Users will always be in the %MAINWEB% (in dakar) and the UserForm is there also. No point in putting there a %MAINWEB%


Since this sort of construct is vaild in form specs (unfortunately) the DBCacheContrib should handle it.
