Create this topic button disabled

Creating pages normally, then found the topic create form submission button disabled on all Webs. What do I investigate/test to reactivate it?

So far:
  • Log out, log in again.
  • Restart foswiki service
  • Restart nginx service
Permissions on Main should cover me (member of AdminGroup, InfoTeamGroup): If {FeatureAccess}{AllowRaw} is set to acl in configure, then the following rules can also be used:
  • #Set DENYWEBHISTORY = WikiGuest
If {FeatureAccess}{AllowHistory} is set to acl in configure, then the following rules can also be used:
  • #Set DENYWEBRAW = WikiGuest
Users or groups allowed to change or rename this WebPreferences topic: (e.g., AdminGroup)

Did you try entering a WikiWord as a topic name?

Ian, You locked yourself out with the ALLOWTOPICCHANGE setting above. I commented it out.,

Cunning, hey? * Thanks team. workaround found: disable WikiWords checkbox. * Residual frustration: Why is 'Patterns' not a valid WikiWord? Yes, I know, but not every topic requires two or more words !!!

See System.WikiWord] for an explanation what a WikiWord is.

I agree with you that WikiWords are more of a problem than a useful concept. Even more as the "new topic" dialog builds up restrictions rather than being helpful. I'd rather let people create topics like they want to and spare the "allow only wikiwords" checkbox, like "don't make me think".

The only real hard constraint is that you cannot create a page that already is there. But that should be all.
