Feature Proposal: some small changes to make the sandbox front page easier to use

Motivation

the EmptyTopics in the sandbox front page quickly fill up and people just keep adding more links making the page large and unwieldy. I find it simpler to provide users with a simple form to create new test topics with.

WhatDoesItAffect: Documentation

HaveQuickFixFor: Any twiki version

Implementation

Replace the contents of Sandbox.WebHome with Sandbox.NewWebHomeExample


Discussion:

Does WebCreateNewTopic exist in every web?

Does it exist in the distro? I find many newbies just don't get the idea that they should start from an existing page, and in our case you are saying that we don't want them to.

matt, i like your changes. i have two requests, however:

  1. please re-incorporate the "Create New Topic" button that doesn't require creating a WikiWord name, but instead automatically creates a "TestTopic#" topic
  2. create an item on http://develop.twiki.org/~develop/cgi-bin/view/Bugs/ and submit a patch there

Will: done: http://develop.twiki.org/~develop/cgi-bin/view/Bugs/Item133

Martin: personally for Sandbox I don't care if the pages are created from within another page. Most of them are throwaway. I don't have WebCreateNewTopic at all though I see how something like it could be useful. I really don't like the one in Codev. It's big, cumbersome and ugly. All just my opinion of course. wink
