TOPICCREATE macro is not interpreted

I'm trying to create template topic, which contains some sub-topics. My idea is to create and include new sub-topics automatically:

<!--- Uncomment following line to automatically create topic --->
<!--- %TOPICCREATE{template="KeyValuesTableTemplate" topic="%TOPIC%SpecificTable"}% --->
%TOPICCREATE{template="KeyValuesTableTemplate" topic="%TOPIC%SpecificTable"}%

<!--- Now, let's include new topic --->

Unfortunately, regardless if I use 'Save' or 'Save and continue' button (NatEdit enabled), TopicCreate macro is not interpreted. TopicCreatePlugin is enabled in bin/configure.

Looks like Apache server restart, resolved my issue:

sudo service apache2 restart

(Why to activate plugin I need to restart server...)

Anyway, is using this (TopicCreate) macro the best choice? It is quite old and migrated from TWiki, so maybe there's a better solution?

If you are using mod_perl or fastcgi, then you may need to reload apache to refresh the configuration after configuration changes. Other than that, I'm unfamiliar with the TOPICCREATE macro.

I've installed an run the unit tests on TopicCreatePlugin on Foswiki 2.0. It had some issues with new perl (unescaped { in regular expressions), so I've fixed those issues. And also added some utf-8 data to the topic and attachment names, and the tests are all passing.

I'll release a new version of the extension.
