Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

If there is a column named Template, that template will be used instead of NewUserTemplate.

Empty fields and the Template field are omitted from the created topic

These seem to be two quite separate and unrelated changes under one Item, which is a no-no!

The first seems to be something that is a backwards compatible change - if the column isn't there in the bulk registration then the action isn't invoked.

The second, however, in Revision: 9028 annoys me. It is a change that affects the apearance of the newly created home topics and makes them differnt from previously created topics. It happens unconditionally.

I can see the value of this change to Meredith but I can also see that it is going to cause a cascade of calls to the help desks of my installed sites when released. This kind of thing should be discussed as a change in specification first. It was submitted as a "Normal" whereas really it is an "Enhancement" or change in specification, so I'm marking it as such.

I've fixed the code so that it only removes empty fields if there are custom templates used. That should fix your concerns, yes?


Actually no.

Removing empty fields is a useful action an and of itself regardless of whether templates are specificed. However it should not be mandatory!

No, my objection was that you used one item in Bugs for two changes, and further did not close the items when completed.
