Patch Proposal: [Make sure topics get the right pre/post-fix]


When users create a (say) bug topic, I would like to make sure the topic has Bug as postfix (or prefix).

Description / Implementation

I would like the following snippet of code to enter Dakar release Edit.pm if possible.

sub edit{
  my $meta = "";
  my $extra = "";

  # Ammendment begin 
  # Get topic pre- and postfixes and add them to topic IFF they are not already pre/postfixed
      my $pre  = $query->param('topicprefix');
      my $post = $query->param('topicpostfix');
      $topic= $pre.$topic unless($topic=~/^$pre/i);
      $topic= $topic.$post unless($topic=~/$post$/i);
  # Ammendment end 

  my $topicExists  = &TWiki::Store::topicExists( $webName, $topic );

Thanx smile

Moved this to be a PatchProposal... hope its simplicity allow me not to do the diff -u thing

The above "diff" is against the Cairo: TWikiRelease02Sep2004

I would like to propose this for Dakar.

Niels, I think you can already do this, without needing any extra parameters - see http://develop.twiki.org/~develop/cgi-bin/view/Bugs/AllOutStandingItems for an example of how we do this to create new Bug entries.

Hi Sven, I don't see any forms for creating new bug entries when I follow your link, could you elaborate?

-- NielsKoldso - 13 Sep 2005

"Create New Item" is in the WebLeftBar; here's a direct link: http://develop.twiki.org/~develop/cgi-bin/edit/Bugs/ItemXXXXXXXXXX?templatetopic=Bugs.HideTextarea&formtemplate=Bugs.ItemTemplate&action=form

-- WillNorris - 13 Sep 2005

Hey - I'm not the only one who finds "Create New Item" to be a non-inuitive equivalent for "Create New Bug Report" or "Create New Issue Report". I added a comment to this effect on the intro page http://develop.twiki.org/~twiki4/cgi-bin/view/Bugs

-- AndyGlew - 02 Oct 2006

I changed the link in the sidebar of the Bugs:WebHome web to "Create bug report" to make more obvious. I also added some help text to the bugs home.
