Default Re: Parent/child relations in a template

The issue has to do with what order traits are added in. In a trait (a template, here) the creates() tag is processed first, then the adds() tag, then the parentof() tag. The problem is that the template adds the parent item using the creates() tag, and at that time the items in the adds() tag have not yet been processed, so they are not present. They need to be added as part of the parent item; that is, they need to be in the parent items adds() or creates() tags.
