Went to edit the TWikiDocumentation page and discovered it was a pile of %INCLUDE%s. Maybe we should change the semantic on this and have it include/aggregate only other Topics.

This would bring it more in line with the TWiki way of things.

The addition of non-Indexed Topics in a web would allow the current 'view' to be keep.

I've been thinking that we should add a %NOINDEX% tag to prevent some topics from showing up in searches. It's convienient to add some topics that do not have valid TWikiNames for "special" stuff. Unfortunately, they show up in index searches and the like. The general users probably don't need to see them.

I don't think I like the idea of only allowing topics in includes; it seems like it removes some flexibility. It seems to me like it's limited correctly since the security concerns were addressed.

Is it the WikiWay though? If Webs where included rather than text files, you would then be able to edit the include webs in the normal manner.

Hmmm... Maybe there should be a tag for webs and a tag for other, say %FILE(...)% for non web items and the standard include tag for webs.

There is a workaround for being able to edit an included topic; see my home page and look for "add your two cents" to see it in action. It's more work, and not pretty, though.

How would the web include for editing work? Would you get two (or more) textareas popping up in the edit form, one for the topic you're in and one for each of the included topics?

The %INCLUDE%s have been done by purpose for the TWikiDocumentation topic. This topic is rather large, so it is easier to maintain if having it split up in separate topics. The large doc generated into an HTML file for distribution, there it is better to have one large HTML file.

Regarding editing included text, this is in the Wiki way but adds some steps: Edit the large topic, copy the name of the included topic, go back in your browser, paste it into the 'Go' field, and edit the topic.

Agree, a %NOINDEX% variable would be nice.

Seems to me that you'd get a similar result from embedding a search with "book mode" turned on. The results wouldn't be as "invisibly embedded" but the advantage would be that any new pages meeting the search criteria (potentially a category search) would be included on the page.
