related to Item1443 ?

this is still happening. in fact, 373963 out of 401313 (>93%) of the warn2010*.txt files are this warning. should we get rid of this warning or simply fail to care?

-- WillNorris - 18 Mar 2010

This is a very old compatibility thing. Before we got the topic forms we know today, there was a primitive category system in tm(wiki) that only allowed ONE form per web and this form was defined in a category template.

We are back in Athens or Beijing. When the topic forms were added compatibility code was made to display the old topics correctly.

People that have upgraded all the way from Athens or Beijing to Foswiki may still need this compatibility code.

As I checked this I see the compatibility code has been altered the wrong way in trunk. The code in Meta.pm must look for $text =~ /<!--TWikiCat-->/. That was one place where the brand name cleaning cannot happen.

Second - the old compatibility code should stop making all that noise. It makes no sense to flood a log with this message. If someone does not want to create a template files for this old junk then so be it. I would not either. And even in the old site they did not.

The old category feature is still shown as a plain table. I am sure people do not care anymore. But in case someone is depending on the featue, he will have created the template and he will want it to work.

First we need to revert to the correct old string in trunk.

Second we should stop making all that noise.

I will fix.
