This is the topic that is shown when a topic does not exist.

  1. this topic is called 'Template'
  2. It has screen elements that should not be visible, such a breadcrumb and Create and Attach buttons at the top, and a topic actions toolbar at the bottom
  3. These elements can not be removed because a skin cannot override the default implementation. View.pm just calls Foswiki::UI::readTemplateTopic( $session, 'WebTopicViewTemplate' )

Done:
  • finally removed the preposterous assumption that the topic "This topic does not exist yet" is an edit template, thereby totally misguiding users in TemplateTopics
  • trashed the stupid tandem WebTopicViewTemplate and WebTopicNonWikiTemplate
  • created a real view template TopicDoesNotExistViewTemplate that is actually called as a view template
  • shuffled all parts on the page with shorter and logical headings
  • moved the "topic moved" message to the top
  • added the topic creation form in the page itself so one step less is required to create a topic
