Item1224: Underscores in topic name with WebTopicCreator are not possible
Current State: Closed
Released In: 1.1.0
Target Release: minor
Applies To: Engine
TWiki bug topic: Item6209
You cannot create topics with underscores in the names like Foo_Bar_Fooo with WebCreateTopic
..even if you check "AllowNoWikiWord"...while you later still can rename it to have this name.
Seems like its simpy a JS validation problem, which does not respect the checkbox and simply converts the name to a WikiWord
all the time

This is really crap; confirmed, and raised to Urgent status for 1.1 release.

validations ought to match the same transform that is done by core when converting a bracketed spaced link into a valid topic name, allowing underscores, and some other limited punctuation permitted by core. It should also pick up
so that local preferences are uniformly enforced.

I found one issue probably with our defaults. NameFilter
default does not include #. But # is interpreted as an anchor and the Topic name is always truncated prior to the #. So we should probably add # to the NameFilter
regex by default.

So...how would I access those changes you've made and incorporate them back into my site?

The changes are all listed at the bottom of this page, and can be reached by clicking on the "checkins". Unfortunately the changes are based upon other changes to version 1.1 of Foswiki and would need quite a bit of rework to fit them onto 1.0.9. 1.1 is getting close to a beta release.
