Yes adding the name attribute makes all working fine. I didn’t know you had changed that.

And OK I see you reverted that requirement. That is probably better for backwards compatibility. I’ll still make it a habit to add the name attribute.

True, just use the name attribute that is working. It would be interesting to update the Textpattern documentation header, using examples with the name attribute(since without it does not work). Just a suggestion.

True at the moment. But see this thread on article snippets for a possible future in which sections may be themeless. Then marking them up this way makes sense.

But if we decide not to pursue this way of working then maybe yes we could hide the pills and (perhaps) link. Will give it some thought.

I’ve now read partly through that thread, with some difficult but interesting concepts. In case you do introduce and use themeless sections, then yes, it probably makes sense, given how it now works, to keep the link (assign sections) next to the theme name. Not sure I fully understand those themeless sections ATM, but will keep reading.

The “pill” note (“in use”) might still be redundant, though ?

Nothing’s decided yet but it’s just a notion whereby you could house unpublished content that you can call into other articles. Such sections could act as silos for content snippets – events, profiles, whatever – that you don’t have to relegate to forms (which are presentation not content) nor have to risk having a discoverable URL.

If a section has no theme, it has no output, therefore the content wouldn’t appear on your site or navigation unless you explicitly ask your templates to grab it as part of other articles in other sections.

The “pill” note (“in use”) might still be redundant, though ?

Yes. We could perhaps hide this if there’s only one theme installed.

Hmm, why do you think the Theme edit panel deserves a special treatment – making the Title required? The title field (the display name) is not required for Sections, Author, Categories, Links, do I forget one ? Just curious.

If omitted, the value in the name field is used.

I don’t know WTF you’re even talking about. The help tip says it’s ‘required’. If that’s wrong then somebody should at least change the help tip. I’m just reporting the confusing inconsistencies, not railroading something through.
