CS branch error  (#3196)

I try to change "hide from navigation" using edit branch on a cs thread. I CAN change from No to Yes but not from Yes to No!


This is how to reproduce this error:

1. Create cs

Hide from navigation set to No

2. Commit

3. Create threads

I create two threads (both inherit hide fromnavigation No from parent)

4. Edit branch on a thread
In order to a thread property I need to use edit branch from asset manager.

So I edit branch on the first thread and change Hide from navigation to Yes

This works and the first thread diappears

5.  Edit back

Same procedure but I Hide from navigation set to No
ERROR: nothing happens and the property is not set. Hide from navigation still Yes.


I havnt checked the code, hopefully this is not a common bug for all assets but just for a collaboration thread.

There's some code in Post/addRevision that forces isHidden=1, so it looks like Posts were not supposed to be visible in navigations.  However, when a Thread is added, processPropertiesFromFormPost is called after addRevision inside www_editSave, so isHidden=1 is overridden with the parent's properties.

When editBranch is called, it calls addRevision, but processPropertiesFromFormPost is never called, so the code works like it should and forces isHidden=1.

I have no idea how to fix this, or if it should be an RFE to allow Posts to be visible inside navigations.

Wiki pages will also have this problem.

Events have a different problem.  isHidden=1 is set inside processPropertiesFormFormPost.  That means isHidden can be turned off via editBranch.

Talked with JT about this bug on IRC:

1) It is a bug that isHidden can ever be set to 0 on Post, Wiki or Event Assets.

2) He's not too interested in adding that ability (set isHidden to 0) as a core feature.

As of 7.3.19/7.4.0, isHidden will be forced to 1 on those three Assets.

Fixed in 7.3.19.  The fix was forward ported to 7.4.0 as well.
