  • X topics have a view template TopicView (topic is TopicViewTemplate)
  • TopicViewTemplate is renamed to NewTopicViewTemplate
  • contents of X topics has become invisible

-- TWiki:Main/ArthurClemens - 09 Mar 2008

should the fix be

  1. rename needs to change all references
  2. VIEW_TEMPLATE should be relaxed to use the default templates if it can't find the right one

or, well both smile

is this related strongly to Item4463 ??

-- TWiki:Main.SvenDowideit - 31 Mar 2008

Apparently more things are at play, since I cannot reproduce the situation above: the topic text won't disappear now. Still it is an annoyance that I need to find all topics that have the old view template set.
