When you create a new bug here in the Bugs web it is supposed to use the WebTopicEditTemplate topic ( templatetopic=WebTopicEditTemplate). However, a blank page shows up.

The Bugs.WebTopicEditTemplate topic contains this signature:

-- TWiki:Main/%WIKINAME% - %DATE%

Setting this to urgent since it breaks TWiki applications. If no time to fix I suggest to release rc1 regadless of this bug.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 25 Nov 2007

What is this bug exactly? Is it BugsContrib related? Or have all templatetopic parameters stopped working?

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 02 Dec 2007

It looks like it is core related since the link in the sidebar to create a new bug item specifies a templatetopic=WebTopicEditTemplate parameter. The WebTopicEditTemplate topic text does not show up in the new topic.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 03 Dec 2007

Peter, can you verify that in a simpler test case than BugsContrib, please? I am using these mechanisms on a daily base in all of my apps and had no problems so far.

-- TWiki:Main.MichaelDaum - 03 Dec 2007

Bouncing this back. I think I gave enough details. Please read my initial problem description again.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 04 Dec 2007

Someone hinted in the release meeting that this is caused by a ItemAUTOINC1 topic that exists. Proper fix is to calculate the actual topic name and to do that exist check with that topic, not with the AUTOINC1 in the topic name.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 04 Dec 2007

you cannot calculate the new topic name until save - otherwise you get a race condition you have to try to work around.

-- TWiki:Main.SvenDowideit - 04 Dec 2007

Seems to be fixed. Dropping to normal before closing. Was it related to BugsContrib or really a core issue? Who fixed it?

-- TWiki:Main.MichaelDaum - 04 Dec 2007

Yes, I can confirm that this works now. What changes have been done in the last few days?

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 04 Dec 2007

I believe someone has deleted a topic named "AUTOINC1".

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 04 Dec 2007

Argh, the ItemAUTOINC1 topic is back created by FrederikBeun. And now the default topic text for bug items is gone again.

-- TWiki:Main.MichaelDaum - 05 Dec 2007

Check for existence: does not exist
