Hey, can we have it so that if one types Main.MartinCleaver into the Go box Twiki changes web and goes to that topic.

As it stands, Twiki tries to create a topic in the current web called Main.MartinCleaver - such topic names are likely to break all sorts of things!

Thanks, M.

This would be a useful enhancement. There is a good change that it will go into the core if you deliver code wink

I changed the classification from BugReport to FeatureEnhancementRequest since it is not a bug per se.

As DrewCard points out, it would be useful for the GoToInputDialog to go to a different wiki as well. I imagine then that this would require a change to the core to expose this front end function to the InterwikiPluginEarlyDev. (Smells of needing to provide a framework such that all UI interactions are wireable to every plugin, is this is how plugins already work? I haven't looked).

Just implemented this, updated the TWikiAlphaRelease and this TWiki.org installation.

You type in "Go" Filed: You jump to:
Support.WebNotify Support.WebNotify
Support. Support.WebHome
WebNotify WebNotify of the current web

This can also be specified on the URL as parameter, i.e.

URL: You jump to:
http://TWiki.org/cgi-bin/view?topic=Support.WebNotify Support.WebNotify
http://TWiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/WebHome/?topic=Support.WebNotify Support.WebNotify (parameter overrides extended path)

I tried this on a new alpha installation:

In TWikiPreferences:

      * Set WIKIWEBLIST = <a href="%WIKIHOMEURL%">%WIKITOOLNAME%</a> . { 
        | <a href="Main.WebHome">Main (Users)</a>
        | <a href="%TWIKIWEB%.WebHome">TWiki Help</a> 

When I clicked on TWiki Help I went to a page called "TWiki . TWiki . TWiki.WebHome ". Which I think it would have then allowed me to create!

I imagine that the code catches the WebName from the dialog box rather than in the page that selects where to go from. It would be nice if it was possible to use code like that which I have listed above.
