Item12591: VIEW_TEMPLATE needs fully qualified topic name
Current State: Closed
Released In: 2.0.0
Target Release: major
When setting this preference variable it's necessary to provide a fully qualified topic name.
For example, when creating a topic in a sub-web
* Set VIEW_TEMPLATE = MyLocalViewTemplate
Will not find the template, you need instead
* Set VIEW_TEMPLATE = Web/SubWeb.MyLocalViewTemplate
The Web/SubWeb must be finished with a '.' as per the example.
Tested on FW 1.0.8 which is quite old, however probably still an issue: see http://irclogs.foswiki.org/bin/irclogger_log/foswiki?date=2013-10-03,Thu&sel=50#l46
where this was discussed a little
Of course this almost certainly applies to EDIT_TEMPLATE as well

Julian, Looks like you proposed a documentation change and addtion of VarVIEWTEMPLATE
to further document the operation. Can you get this done for 1.2?

OK, I'll take it on. What's the timeframe?
