Detail

I created a subweb: Friends/Vicki/Recipes.

In that subweb, I put a template, NewRecipeTemplateStrict, a TWiki Form, NewRecipeForm, and an HTML form to create a new page:

<form name="new" action="%SCRIPTURLPATH%/edit%SCRIPTSUFFIX%/%INTURLENCODE{"%WEB%"}%">
     <input type="hidden" name="action" value=form" />
     <input type="hidden" name="topicparent" value="WebHome" />
     <input type="hidden" name="onlynewtopic" value="on" />
     <input type="hidden" name="templatetopic" value="NewRecipeTemplateStrict" />
     <input type="hidden" name="topic" value="RecipeXXXXXXXXXX" />

     <input type="submit" value="Create" />
</form>

When I clicked the "Create" button, I got an error message:

Attention

"Friends/Vicki.NewRecipeTemplateStrict" topic does not exist
You are trying to templatetopic a topic that does not exist.

When I fixed that problem, the new page was created in the Friends/Vicki sub (not the Recipes subweb) and the form was "not available".

Workaround

<form name="new" action="%SCRIPTURLPATH%/edit%SCRIPTSUFFIX%/%INTURLENCODE{"%WEB%"}%">
     <input type="hidden" name="action" value=form" />
     <input type="hidden" name="topicparent" value="%WEB%.WebHome" />
     <input type="hidden" name="onlynewtopic" value="on" />
     <input type="hidden" name="templatetopic" value="%WEB%.NewRecipeTemplateStrict" />
     <input type="hidden" name="topic" value="%WEB%.RecipeXXXXXXXXXX" />

     <input type="submit" value="Create" />
</form>

Problem

Apparently, "templatetopic" and "topic" URL parameters need to be fully qualified. Unlike most topic names, they aren't assumed to be in the "current" subweb. Most odd.
