Topic errors


►  Topic under Category
Topic is not visible from Category page.

Consider the following two options when addressing this error:
Option 1:  Change Topic to Guide Option 2:  Move Topic under nearest Guide within hierarchy
  1. Change article type from Topic to Guide.
  2. Add Guide DekiScript. To do this:
  • Paste the following into your code block:
template('MindTouch/IDF3/Views/Guide');
 

 
►  Topic under Topic
This is a warning and not a required change. MindTouch advises against deep hierarchies, recommending a horizontal organization as an alternative. To address, make the Topics siblings by moving the lower-level guide up the hierarchy.
 
►  Topic under How-To
How-To articles are leaf nodes.  Topics cannot exist under a How-To article.

Consider the following two options when addressing this error:
Option 1:  Move Topic under nearest Guide or Topic Option 2:  Change How-to to Topic
 
  1. Change article type from How-to to Topic.


 
►  Topic under Reference
Reference articles are leaf nodes.  Topics cannot exist under a Reference article.

Consider the following two options when addressing this error:
Option 1:  Move Topic under nearest Guide or Topic Option 2:  Change Reference to Topic
 
  1. Change article type from Reference to Topic.

 
►  Topic under Unclassified
Consider the following two options when addressing this error:
Option 1:  Move Topic under nearest Guide or Topic Option 2:  Change Unclassified to Topic
 
  1. Change article type from (not set) to Topic.

 
►  Topic under {Custom}
{Custom} articles are leaf nodes.  Topics cannot exist under a {custom} article.

  1. Change article type from {custom} article to Topic.

 

  If you are on MT4, you may have to replace IDF3 in the code above with IDF2.  To confirm whether you are on IDF2,  create a new category page and verify theIDF number
