After installing TopicClassificationAddOn I cannot create a new TopicType. I get popup "Please enter a new for your new TopicType". I guess I found the source code in data/TCAO/RenderAddClassification.txt but I cannot understand much more than that. Line 79-80, function checkName. I cannot find a way to work around it etiher, but it seems to a least be a typo in the popup alert. Also after enabling a web for TCAO when I click TopicTree in my browser I get :

TWiki detected an internal error - please check your TWiki logs and webserver logs for more information.
Undefined subroutine &TWiki::Plugins::TreePlugin::installWeb called

And of course during installation of TCAO there was alot of messages like this:

Checking dependency on TWiki::Plugins::DBCachePlugin....
*** TopicClassificationAddOn depends on perl package TWiki::Plugins::DBCachePlugin >=1.51-pre1
which is described as "Required. Download from the TWiki:Plugins/DBCachePlugin code library."
But when I tried to find it I got this error:

 13250032007 is currently installed: Bareword "pre1" not allowed while "strict subs" in use at (eval 222) line 1.
I installed the other plugins manually or by configure and then tried answering no when TCAO installer run.




Using mod_perl. Tested om my laptop with apache 2.2 on Ubuntu Feisty, came to same error (Please enter a new ?? for your new TopicType). A bit troublesome getting the dependencies ritght, have to run the installer over again a few times. Like the IfDefinedPlugin didnt come right off, and after enabling I had to restart apache, but thats no problem.

My apologies for taking long time in seeing this bug report! The issue had to do with the change of the name of js function in twiki.js. I fixed this with svn checkin 13160.
