Originally found in TWiki:Support/BlogPostViewTemplate, but this does not only occur with BlogAddOn or pattern skin.

When a topic is created using a template that has a META:PREFERENCE setting:

  • Saving the topic from edit will keep that setting
  • Saving the topic from preview will not remember that setting

-- TWiki:Main/ArthurClemens - 28 Apr 2007

templatetopic is currently written as:

<input type="hidden" name="templatetopic" value="%TEMPLATETOPIC%" />

I think it should be:

<input type="hidden" name="templatetopic" value="%URLPARAM{"templatetopic"}%" />

This change makes it work.

I've made changes to pattern skin, classic skin and default skin.
