Is there a setting to turn off the Choose Form Button? I don't really want people to accidently convert a BugReport into a SupportLog. (I constantly hit the Change button when i mean to hit Save/Preview)

Yes, the Change Form button can be confusing, especially when there is no form (Add Form button). I hit that button by mistake several times. Any idea on the UI, how to solve that?

We could put back the "small" change button that was in previous betas, although I think this only work for IE. Alternatively a small image could be used.

I also find the Change button a bit confusing, but of course this should have come up in beta testing so feel free to ignore this smile Maybe if it was a bit smaller, and located either at extreme left or right of screen? Alternatively, how about making the button text say 'Change Form Structure' or similar?

The real problem is that you will only occasionally want to change the form applied to a page, but the button is very easily accessible and just says 'Change'. Maybe if the right hand part of the coloured bar that has Preview Changes had a 'Change Form' button, it would be harder to hit it by accident.

actually, remembering the WorkFlow and DocumentManagement discussions i had at Unisys, we should have permissions on the ChangeForm button, and some sort of permission on the WebTopicEditTemplate that do not propagate to the newly created page - there are some things only the QaManager should be allowed to change smile

Where is the rendering of META form handled? I couldn't find it any of the .tmpl files. I'd like to remove the header row from the form as I only need one form per web. E.g.:

TopicClassification ...
ProjectGroup ...

Instead of

TopicClassification ...
ProjectGroup ...

You would have to take out the call to link in Form::renderForEdit in Form.pm. I would replace it with the linked name of the form in small font next or under the form...

See also MoveFormButton for a solution to at least move the Change button to a more reasonable location....
