Current behavior when you create a new web:
- if based on a TemplateWeb (web name starting with underscore), all topics are copied
- else if based on a regular web, only system topics starting with Web* are copied
This behavior is only documented in the code, not in the user docs.
I do not see a need to copy only the system topics. A more common use case is to duplicate and customize a whole web, say a project web.
This item tracks the change for the new behavior:
- All topics are copied, regardless if new web is based on a TemplateWeb or a regular web.
This is now in SVN trunk and 5.1 branch.
Actually, I discovered that it was documented in ManagingWebs#WebTemplate
. Therefore I updated & improved the docs.
