TWiki Features

TWiki builds on the original Wiki concept and adds a number of features that make it very useful in a business environment.

  • One special hieroglyph that is very important is a BumpyWord
    • a word that starts with uppercase, then some lowercase, then more uppercase (a.k.a CamelCase)
  • This has a special meaning to TWiki; if it matches the name of another topic, TWiki will automatically create a link to that page for you.

  • If there is no such page, then the word is highlighted and a question mark is put after the word, LikeThis
  • If you click on the question mark, then TWiki will invite you to create that page.

 Basic TWiki is rich with features, but is enriched even further by the addition of optional plug-in modules that may (or may not!) be installed in your TWiki. These are classified as either skins (modules that change the look-and-feel) and plugins (modules that enhance functionality).

Here's a brief description of some of the more common plugins, together with the tags you might expect to see in topics if they are used. You can find out more by visiting the plugin pages.
