I noticed that I can't do this:

   * Set TOPICTITLE = %IF{"defined 'DEFAULT'" then="defined, expands as %DEFAULT%" else="undefined, expands as %DEFAULT%"}%
   * Set TEST = %IF{"defined 'WEBFORMS'" then="defined" else="undefined"}%
  • TOPICTITLE no param: undefined, expands as %DEFAULT%
  • TOPICTITLE with param: undefined, expands as Support.Faq40
  • TEST: defined

  "defined 'something'"
  then="defined, expands as %something%"
  else="undefined, expands as %something%"
   * INCLUDE no param: %INCLUDE{"%TOPIC%" section="test"}%
   * INCLUDE with param: %INCLUDE{"%TOPIC%" section="test" something="boo"}%

  • INCLUDE no param: undefined, expands as %something%
  • INCLUDE with param: defined, expands as boo

Support.Faq40#ReplacingTOPICTITLE has a reasonably non-trivial parameterised Set variable

Crawford, looking at the commits, it appears that this feature has been merged to trunk and release 1.1.4 Okay to set Waiting for Release, or does it need more work?

I left it waiting for feedback to see if anyone else tried it; Paul has, but TBH I don't understand his feedback. AFAIK it's ready for production, but I'd really like some more feedback.

Setting WaitingForRelease - so it doesn't get overlooked on release
