This is a handy plugin for application development; however, the requirement that the CHILDTOPICTEMPLATE variable call be placed inside the content makes it brittle. A user, editing a template, can too easily remove or reposition this line of code.

The plugin would be less subject to accidental misuse if it supported a preference setting that could be placed in the topic Settings area, e.g.

   * Set USECHILDTOPICTEMPLATE = MyApplicationTemplate
