[betalabs] 'Update summary' on blank summary will create an empty view-topic-summary page
Closed, ResolvedPublic


  1. Click on 'Mark as resolved' on a topic without a summary.
  2. Without adding anything, click 'Update summary'.
  3. Two notifications will be sent - one 'Topic was summarized" and another one "The topic was resolved". The timestamps will be different.
  4. Go to 'View history' and click on the entry that says "[username] created topic summary on [date]" - The page does not have any permanent link (or any other info to a user).


It looks very confusing to a user to find the 'created summary' entry empty - it might look like the info was lost and the functionality broken.
