data/TWiki/WebTopicViewTemplate.txt:    * Continue to <a href="%SCRIPTURLPATH%/edit%SCRIPTSUFFIX%/%WEB%/%TOPIC%"><b>Create the new page</b></a>

The use of a skin to select a different template suffers in that if there is ever a link without the ?skin=kupu part then the user is dumped into RawEdit; IejsIsNotASkin had the same problem.

Short term people need to change the above thusly:

data/TWiki/WebTopicViewTemplate.txt:    * Continue to <a href="%SCRIPTURLPATH%/edit%SCRIPTSUFFIX%/%WEB%/%TOPIC%?skin=kupu"><b>Create the new page</b></a>

update That is not sufficient. Having kupu explicitly mentioned here does not involve the need for further explicit use whenever TWiki comes across a missing link. With kupu edit being a separate skin the create links stay on pattern instead of invoking kupu, the nieve user is dumped into raw edit without so much as a warning.

Test Case

  1. Jump to a page name that does not exist.
    1. Continue to Create the new page
    2. You are dropped in the raw edit screen not kupu edit.
  2. Follow a link to a page that does not exist
    1. You are dropped in the raw edit screen not kupu edit.


Workarounds are posted on Item568

Changed this to Engine because it is not a problem with the plugin, but the templates that invoke it. CC

Workaround available. Reclassified as Low.


Very cryptic:
  • Engine? AppliesTo says Extension: PatternSkin
  • Workaround available? What? Where?

What should be done by whom?


Done in SVN 7766, which introduces the new "EDIT_SKIN" TWiki variable.
