Item13835: Title Field in Natedit gone, even when used.
Current State: Closed
Released In: 2.1.5
Target Release: patch
I see that there was a discussion on topic titles in Natedit, see Item13629
. Thereafter, release notes in the updated NatEditPlugin
mention on Sep 8th: Hide ToipcTitle when unused.
My experience is, that the topic titles are gone, even when the topic has TOPICTITLE set or a form attached, containing a field TopicTitle.
do not mention either , how I can bring back the established behaviour.

This will be configurable in the next release, including a way to specify the formfield that should serve as a topic title. In your version you will simply have to revert this patch
by adding back
to the definition of
... We disabled the topic title last minute due to other people complaining.

I just came across this task after users asked me where the Topic Title feature went to. I hadn't noticed it for a long time because I almost always working with a DataForm that includes a TopicTitle field. However, when I figured out that indeed this feature had disappeared in the absence of having the field explicitly defined, I was mystified and thought at first something was broken. Finding this task, I just want to put in a vote of strong support for the feature. NatEditPlugin's implementation of the feature whereby it defined a preference setting for TOPICTITLE in the absence of a DataForm field worked very well. I can't imagine why folks would complain about it because it is such a basic usability enhancement (evidenced by users complaints at it's disappearance). In any case, thanks for making it easy to re-enable and I look forward to it's reintroduction in upcoming release!

I've added a context
that will let us display the field once the feature is available. It currently is only implemented by DBCachePlugin
, but will move into the core in 2.2. So current state of affairs is: the TopicTitle formfield will be editable once DBCachePlugin
is installed ... or any other plugin that implements it.
