Create New Topic in TWiki Web

Topic name:

Allow non WikiWord for the new topic name

It's usually best to choose a WikiWord for the new topic name, otherwise automatic linking may not work. Characters not allowed in topic names, such as spaces, will automatically be removed.

Topic parent:

Info Once you have created the topic, consider adding links in related topics to the new topic so that there are more ways people can discover it.

Comments & Questions about this Distribution Document Topic

Is it somehow possible to autmatically pre select the topic you came from as the parent topic?

-- CarloSchulz - 27 Apr 2007

This comment section is about the documentation.

Pre-selecting the current topic can be done if the first item in the list is set to %BASETOPIC%. This is a new feature that should be tracked in Bugs:WebHome.

I've found a solution. Where do you suggest to document this just in case someone esle is interested? Codev or Support?

-- CarloSchulz - 09 May 2007

Use the parent url parameter, for example WebTopicCreator?parent=AccessKeys.

-- ArthurClemens - 10 May 2007

Thanks for the hint Arthur. Here's what i did: I've added the following link in to one of the view templates

<a href="%SCRIPTURLPATH{"view"}%/%BASEWEB%/WebTopicCreator?from=%BASETOPIC%" >create new topic</a>

and added the following in WebTopicCreator (topicparent section)

<option selected value="">%URLPARAM{"from"}%</option>

Now, everytime I click on that link the page I came from is pre selected as the parent topic.

With TWiki 4.2, the name of the URL parameter changed. Since the WebLeftBar in non-default webs is not changed with an upgrade, they still have the old (and now 'wrong') name, which means that the parent field is blank (the select box is now a text field, presumably so the whole list of topics doesn't need to be downloaded).

To restore the feature of pre-loading the parent field, you need to change the parameter name from parent to topicparent in this line of (each web's) WebLeftBar topic:

   * [[%SCRIPTURLPATH{"view"}%/%BASEWEB%/WebTopicCreator?parent=%BASETOPIC%][ %ICON{"newtopic"}% %MAKETEXT{"Create New Topic"}%]]

Is there a way to hide some topics from the topic parent list?
