  • NOTE: The following image should not go into Beta!! I (rhk) don't see the need for it in any case, what does it do? For now, I'm commenting (or moving) it out.
    DEVELOP TWiki topic: View, Diff
    Cairo TWiki topic: Diff

  • List this web in the SiteMap:
    • If yes, set SITEMAPLIST to on, do not set NOSEARCHALL, and add the "what" and "use to..." description for the site map. Make sure to list only links that include the name of the web, e.g. Wikilearn.Topic links.
    • Set SITEMAPLIST =
    • Set SITEMAPWHAT = Learn or teach anything related to free or open source software.
    • Set SITEMAPUSETO = ... find, edit, or create notes on using Linux, programming in Perl, C++, ..., etc.

  • Exclude web from a web="all" search: (Set to on for hidden webs) Note: This is set to on since this web is not focused on TWiki development/doc/support -- PTh
    • Set NOSEARCHALL = on

  • Users or groups who are not / are allowed to view / change / rename topics in the Wikilearn web: (See TWikiAccessControl)
    • Set DENYWEBVIEW =

Email and Proxy Server Settings

  • TWiki webmaster email address:

Table Settings

Note that the "most" global setting of the table preferences is in Plugins.TablePlugin (or TWiki.TablePlugin??). It's not clear to me which, and I'm not sure this "extra" location for settings (beyond TWiki.TWikiPreferences and <Webname>.TWikiPreferences) is well documented, although it has been quite a while since I read the TWiki documentation.

  • One line description, shown in the TextFormattingRules topic:
    • Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = Control attributes of tables and sorting of table columns

  • Set DEBUG to 1 to get debug messages in data/debug.txt. Default: 0
    • Set DEBUG = 0

  • Make sortable:
    • #Set SORT = attachments
    • Set SORT = all
    • #Set SORT = none

  • Default table attributes:

  • Default table attributes:
    • #original: Set TABLEATTRIBUTES = tableborder="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="1" headerbg="#99CCCC" databg="#FFFFCC, #FFFFFF"
    • #Main.PeterThoeny's change of April, 2003: Set TABLEATTRIBUTES = tableborder="0" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="2" valign="top" headerbg="#0c2577" headercolor="#FFFF99" databg="#DDDDDD,#F8F8F8"
    • Set TABLEATTRIBUTES = tableborder="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="1" valign="top" headerbg="#6699CC" headercolor="#0c2577" databg="#DDDDDD,#F8F8F8"

Notes

  • A preference is defined as:
    6 spaces * Set NAME = value
    Example:
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #FFFFC0
  • Preferences are used as TWikiVariables by enclosing the name in percent signs. Example:
    • When you write variable %WEBBGCOLOR% , it gets expanded to skyblue .
  • The sequential order of the preference settings is significant. Define preferences that use other preferences first, i.e. set WEBCOPYRIGHT before WIKIWEBMASTER since %WEBCOPYRIGHT% uses the %WIKIWEBMASTER% variable.
  • You can introduce new preferences variables and use them in your topics and templates. There is no need to change the TWiki engine (Perl scripts).
