Note -This feature was accepted in June 2014. However, it apparently has not yet been implemented in the FW Core.

The bug, therefore, appears to be mine. I'll leave this task in place as a test case for when Tasks/Item12830 is implemented so we can be sure the core feature doesn't have it.

However, I don't understand the bug, so I've filed a Support request here in case someone else sees what I'm obviously missing: Support/Question1831

I have a Library app. Each page uses the LibTitle value from its attached form to set to TOPICTITLE variable.


For one entry, the LibTitle value contained a single quote. The TOPICTITLE broke at the quote mark and the page could not be displayed.

Test Case:

(Test case duplicated here at (/Tasks/Testcases/Item14217TestCase); however, it won't work until TOPICTITLE is implemented here.)

Setting to confirmed for 2.2.0 against FoswikiMeta for now, so we don't lose track of it.
