Possible bug in Atahualpa

Possible bug in Atahualpa

I'm using Atahualpa 3.4.3 and WP 2.8.5 for my news site.

Just noticed something: I created a post with a title. After publishing (or saving a draft), the title appears on the front page. The title also appears in the title fields of the Atahualpa Post Options box under the main editing box. If I then change the title in the title field of the main editing box and publish, the title does NOT change in the Atahualpa Post Options title fields. In fact, the new title will show up in the Recent Posts widget in the left sidebar, but the old title shows up in the center column, front page.

So if I want to have the new title appear everywhere, I have to remember to change it in the ATA Post Options fields as well as in the main title field. I haven't tested this in Ata 3.4.4 yet.

Ah, I see. :-)

Maybe it's a feature OR a bug. Maybe if it could be off by default and only an option to fill in those fields at all? It's just confusing as it is, or maybe we're the only ones who will run into this.

My users doing posts for the news site keep having trouble with this issue. I would like to disable the post title options fields under the editing pane. We rather frequently change a post title during revisions, and people keep forgetting to also change the 2 titles in the options, so the same article shows up in different places with different titles. This should, in my opinion, be a "feature" that can be enabled if needed but should be off by default. Too confusing, and not sufficiently useful to be on by default.

JD or Flynn, how can I disable it?

Oh, and I know it's Christmas Day, so I don't expect an answer today. Merry Christmas, wherever you all are!

Many times I use a smaller title on a page that shows up on a menu but want something more descriptive when the page is opened. Before ATA I would use th WPTitle2 plugin so it's kinda handy to have this function built in although I can see how this would be confusing especially to non-geeky types. What I do when I change a title is to just delete what's in those two fields and they will repopulate with the new title. Not a real fix but a bit less cumbersome.

I do the same thing, delete the titles in those fields so they repopulated when the post is updated with the new title. It would be better if there were a nag screen to remind the user to deal with those fields upon changing the main title. I think part of the problem is that on many people's screens, those fields are not visible without scrolling, so they forget they're there.
