Bug: Rename Kills Attachments and Forms

PeterThoeny pointed out that a renaming can cause the loss of attachments and form data.

Test case

  • Create topic TopicOne, with text TopicTwo
  • Create TopicTwo
  • Add form and/or attachment to TopicTwo
  • View TopicOne.
  • Select rename (via more)
  • Form and attachment data in TopicTwo lost

Fix record

In rename

Change line 188 from:

                next if( /^%META:TOPIC(INFO|MOVED)/ );


           if( /^%META:TOPIC(INFO|MOVED)/ ) {
               $resultText .= "$_\n";

Note that with the META:TOPICINFO line being lost, TWiki thought the pre meta format was being used and all meta data was swept away.
