This question about Upgrading from TWiki to Foswiki: Answered

Use of meta parent

I have an DataForms app where I was using % META{"parent" formfield="FolderSummary"} % to modify my breadcrumbs to show a form field recursing up the parent child relationship instead of the topic name.

My topic names are all Folder_xxx and are made with AUTOINCs.

That no longer works in Foswiki. I've tried a bunch of alternatives and none are working.

What I get is

I used to get

FancyName > FancySubName > Stage1

Any suggestions?

I can offer 2 alternatives:
  1. Foswiki 1.0 style, using FORMFIELD:
    %META{"parent" format="[[$web.$topic][$percntFORMFIELD{$quotTitle$quot topic=$quot$topic$quot}$percnt]]"}%
  2. Foswiki 1.1 style, using QUERY:
    %META{"parent" format="[[$web.$topic][$percntQUERY{$quot'$web.$topic'/Title$quot}$percnt]]"}%

I had tried a lot of options similar to the first but never had the quot's in there. So close. I chose to use the second option and it works smashingly. Thank you for the tip and for all the amazing things you've done with *wiki!!!
