I have a HTML form that creates a new wiki page after you fill in some field values similar to ChangeRequest
. I added the entry (look in edit mode since pre or verbatim are not working in the field):
<input type="hidden" name="skin" value="kupu" />
to the form. When you create the page with the form, the edit window now is using this plugin but the page is blank instead of using the topic template I setup for the page. Actually the form portion of the template is still used. It is just the text area that had some headings, etc. already defined that does not work. I am using v.16 from Sept '05.
does not support topic creation with topic templates, due to the hairy way this is done in the edit script. Maybe some time.
Strangely enough, when NatSkinPlugin
is enabled you do
get a template in Kupu, only the wrong one, namely WebTopicViewTemplate
. Could this be due to the same reason as Item1127?
It's all to do with the way it works. The plugin works by replacing the topic text with a specialised template 9edit.kupu.tmpl) that contains an IFRAME. The IFRAME is populated from a URL - basically a view of the topic from the server. Now, if the topic doesn't exist, then there is nothing on the server to view, and you should see a blank canvas.
To resolve this I'd need to do a lot of work to handle the parameters differently, and the support just isn't there in Cairo. After Dakar is released we can have another crack at it.
