Move topic and all children topics to new sub-web

When I move topic to new sub-web using "Rename or move" (http://my-server/foswiki/bin/rename/MyOldWeb/MyTopic), I would expect that all children topics will be also moved.

However this is not the case - children topics points properly to parent node in new sub-web.

However, all children topics still exists in old web. What is the reason? Could you tell me if Foswiki provides any possibility to move all children topics together with parent node?

You are correct that children topics are not moved or changed (other than changing the parent topic reference) when the parent topic is renamed or moved. You need to move the children topic independently.

You might take a look at CopyContrib which allows for copying multiple topics at once. I can envision fairly easily creating a form which locates all children of a topic and copies the parent and children topics together using this contrib.
