create new tag
, view all tags


I've started dabbling with twiki a little while ago and need some help with categorizing topics...

So far I've been creating topics via a template with something very simple that looks like this:

<form name="new" action="%SCRIPTURLPATH%/edit%SCRIPTSUFFIX%/%INTURLENCODE{"%WEB%"}%/">
     <input type="text" name="topic" value="something" size="23" />
     <input type="hidden" name="templatetopic" value="MyTemplateTopic" />
     <input type="hidden" name="topicparent" value="%TOPIC%" />
     <input type="hidden" name="onlywikiname" value="on" />
     <input type="hidden" name="onlynewtopic" value="on" />
     <input type="submit" value="Create" />

However, I'd like to add a functionality like what this site has (TopicClassification) to easily add categories to topics and make them search-friendly.

I've been trying to base myself off WebCreateNewTopic and BasicForm... here's the code:

<form name="new" action="%SCRIPTURLPATH%/edit%SCRIPTSUFFIX%/%INTURLENCODE{"%WEB%"}%/" method="get">
     <input type="text" name="topic" size="40" />
     %CALC{"$LISTJOIN( ,$LISTMAP(<label><input type='radio' name='TopicClassification' value='$item' $IF($EXACT($item,Select one...),checked='checked',)>$item</label>%BR%, %SEARCH{ "^ExampleForm$" scope="topic" type="regex" nosearch="on" nototal="on" format="$pattern(.*[|] TopicClassification[^|]+[|][^|]+[|][^|]+[|]([^|]+|)[|].*)" }%))"}%
     <input type="hidden" name="onlywikiname" value="on" />
     <input type="hidden" name="templatetopic" value="ExampleForm" />
     <input type="submit" value="Create New Topic" />

Although it displays fine, it's not keeping track of the TopicClassification when I create the new topic. It just creates the new topic using the "ExampleForm" template. If I omit the templatetopic input line, it creates a blank topic.

Is this a feature found only in twiki 4? I'm using the september 2004 build... if not, does anyone know what I'm missing? Sorry in advance if it's obvious; I'm still very new to Twiki. smile

Thanks, Behrouz

You should be asking questions in the Support web.

In any case, I believe you need to still provide a topic for 'templatetopic' and associate ExampleForm with the topic (if it is not enabled web-wide).
