I recently upgraded from 4.1.2 to 4.2.2 + latest (07 May 2008) action tracker. My ACTIONSEARCHes do not have the color coding, and edit links open in the same window.

I believe I've found the cause, but I don't understand the TWiki rendering pipeline well enough to suggest a fix.

ACTIONSEARCH is implemented by registerTagHandler; the TWiki engine decides when to activate it and hides the tag from other things. ACTION is implemented via commonTagsHandler, which is only called if TWiki finds an unknown tag; the handler bails if if doesn't find a tag of of the form ACTION.*

So: the CSS & JS files are inserted by commonTagsHandler. commonTagsHandler is never called because TWiki is handling ACTIONSEARCH itself.

Inserting a bogus tag such as ACTIONBLARG will cause the routine to run and add the appropriate files. Simply copying the addToHEAD lines to _handleActionSerach does not seem to work.

We see this same issue on our attempt to convert to 4.2.2. No js or css added to the head on pages with ACTIONSEARCH. The workaround of adding ACTIONBLARG{} works around the problem.
