[opencms-dev] Template property wiped when using Internet Explorer

Hello Andy,

Thanks for your reply. You were right: there were two 'template' properties with different case. I just tried it: deleted the 'Template' property and it seems to work. Internet explorer is no longer confused.

I still wonder where the other 'Template' property was coming from. I have never noticed it on any other projects. I think it got introduced by importing a 'Template One' module, which we needed to investigate for optimizations. Because when I deleted the 'Template' property, it warned me about resources in that 'Template One' module using that property. And that's the only time ever I worked with 'template one' and also the only time ever I noticed this issue (and we have already 10+ opencms projects up and running). So I assume Template one is guilty.

Kind regards,

Luc Feys
