Feature Proposal: Streamline reparenting a topic


SaveContentWithoutEdit enables this


streamline the "Edit and Save" steps when choosing a new parent topic on "More actions..." .; skip the edit/save cycle and set the parent directly

change the "Edit" button to "Save" ("Reparent", actually)

Impact and Available Solutions


If necessary, user documentation of new features introduced by this proposal.


Example uses of features introduced by proposal.


call the save script instead of the edit script.


This is a sensible change.

All we need is for this patch to be applied to PatternSkin and this will be none. 2 lines changed :). (Patch attached)

Probably best to do same for classic.

The reason this simple change has not been implemented before is that you cannot direclty save a topic with a form that has a required field - the field value is not copied automatically. I think this would require a new request: CopyFieldValuesOnSave.

Saving a topic with required fields appears to have been fixed. Filed in Bugs:Item3831.
