Item11909: Sandbox.WebHome needs validation of user entered new topic name.

Priority: Urgent
Current State: Closed
Released In: 1.1.6
Target Release: patch

If a user who is new to Foswiki tries to create a new topic in the Sandbox using the "Create a new topic" button in Sandbox, they will get an Access denied error. A user who has edit priveleges to Sandbox will actually end up editing the Sandbox page itself. Ideally, entering in a topic name here should work as it does when you select "Create New Topic" from the Toolbox and enter a name, and automatically convert it to a WikiWord. Encountered this in 1.1.3, verified it still exists in 1.1.5.

Fixed in upcoming 1.1.6 as part of Item11571. Marking as Waiting for release, and will add a warning to the release notes. Our default upgrade procedures do not upgrade the Sandbox.WebHome (or any other WebHome). This time, I'll include Sandbox WebHome in the upgrade package. I just manually upgraded Sandbox on to the new version.
