How to reproduce:
TestWeb1 (or whatever you cal lit), create a form
ContactForm with a formfield
- create a topic
CompanyName (not sure if that step is needed)
- create a topic and attach this form to it
- move it to another web
- check out the data of the form after it has been moved using
- your formfield
ContactForm has been renamed to
TestWeb1.ContactForm and thus has destroyed any code (e.g.
$meta->get('FIELD', 'CompanyName') ) that relied on it to be called
ContactForm and not
How do we resolve this? Is it okay to never ever rewrite formfield names (and titles)? When would you expect formfield names
to be renamed
the same way normal WikiWords

years ago, I started to use fully qualified names for formfields - as in, always Web dot WIkiName
for exactly this reason.
None the less thou, I found it necessary to make moves and renames affect form meta data (as for WikiWord
renames) - as I found myself moving form definition topics (after they had been used for a while) to a separate web.
