Today when i am adding a new topic under the subfolder by
clicking New Topic from the toolbar, the new topic name with the
default text, "Type topic text here" is not automatically displayed
in the WYSIWYG editor instead a blank page is displayed with the
footer template in WYSIWYG.
I am curious and not sure why is this happening because it
was working perfectly before where the topic title and the default
text would show up.
Am i going to have any problem later by giving the title name
myself in the WYSIWIG editor as oppose to coming automatically?
It sounds like you may have inadvertently selected the option
to base your new topics on a template -- and the template that you
have selected has no content. If you want to see the default new
topic content ( Topic heading + "Type topic text here") then make
sure you select
None in the Template field of the New Topic dialog.
To answer your other question, it does not make any
difference if you type the heading into the topic after you have
created it. To ensure that the topic heading auto-updates to
reflect the topic title, I recommend that you insert a topic title
Field (Insert > Field > title).
