! Issue with retaining selection choices across form submissions
(Two are simple documentation errors, which is why I have three subissues.)
I want to make a select input from the list of available tags, and then have the selection remembered from form invocation to the next.
documentation for tpaction="showalltags" format="..." seems to indicate that $marker is what I want.
Sub-Issue #1: Documentation missing for selection="..." parameter
The documentation describes the $marker parameter, but not the selection="..." parameter. Both seem to be relevant/necessary to carry the selection forward across form submissions.
Sub-Issue #2: $marker token in format="..." breaks when web="..." parameter is specified.
$marker in format="..." works when web="..." is absent, and fails when it is present:
In the working example, the generated HMTL looks like this:
<option >Access Control</option>
<option selected="selected" >access_control</option>
In the broken example, the generated HTML looks like this:
Sub-Issue #3: Documentation of default action for web="..." parameter is incorrect.
The documentation says the default for web="..." is the current web, but I think that the default is all webs. (See below.) My application is yet another project management application, and is very unrelated to the other webs in the Twiki instance. I would really like to limit the tags to the set of tags for the current web, but that breaks remembering the selection across form submissions.
