TWiki .Manufacturing Web Preferences

The following settings are web preferences of the TWiki .Manufacturing web. These preferences overwrite the site-level preferences in TWikiPreferences, and can be overwritten by user preferences (your personal topic, i.e. TWikiGuest in the TWiki .Main web)


  • List of topics of the TWiki .Manufacturing web:

  • Web specific background color: (Pick a lighter one of the StandardColors)
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #009966

  • List this web in the SiteMap:
    • If yes, Set SITEMAPLIST = on, 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. Manufacturing.Topic links.
    • Set SITEMAPLIST = on
    • Set SITEMAPWHAT = Underwater Robotics
    • Set SITEMAPUSETO = ...collaborate on Seabed-related projects

  • Exclude web from a web="all" search: (Set to on for hidden webs)

  • Default template for new topics and form(s) for this web:
    • WebTopicEditTemplate? : Default template for new topics in this web. (Site-level is used if topic does not exist)
    • TWiki.WebTopicEditTemplate: Site-level default template
    • TWikiForms: How to enable form(s)
    • Set WEBFORMS = WebForm?

  • Users or groups who are not / are allowed to view / change / rename topics in the Manufacturing web: (See TWikiAccessControl). Remove the # to enable any of these settings. Remember that an empty setting is a valid setting; setting DENYWEBVIEW to nothing means that anyone can view the web.

  • Web preferences that are not allowed to be overridden by user preferences:


  • A preference is defined as:
    6 spaces * Set NAME = value
  • Preferences are used as TWikiVariables by enclosing the name in percent signs. Example:
    • When you write variable %WEBBGCOLOR%, it gets expanded to #009966.
  • 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).
