    • Set NOAUTOLINK =

Added:
>
>
  • Use topic title instead of topic name in forced links, such as in link [[BugItem1234]]. If enabled, the link label is set to the form field named "Title", the topic preferences setting named TITLE, or the topic name if neither exists. Forced links with label such as [[BugItem1234][bug 1234]] are not affected. The topic title can be shown even with disabled flag by using syntax [[+BugItem1234]]. NOTE: Page rendering may be slower if enabled and if there are many forced links in a topic.
    • Set SHOWTOPICTITLELINK =
 
  • If you use non WikiWords for topic names (for example "Expenses" or "Mighty1") and if you use bracket notation to link to those topics, it is useful to turn of all warnings (like: "WARNING: This topic name is not recommended because it will not be linked automatically") and checkboxes ("Allow non WikiWord for the new topic name"). Can be overwritten by web preferences. Set to on to activate:

  • Parent breadcrumbs for headings:
    • Add %PARENTBC% to a heading of a topic to show the breadcrumb of its parents. Parent topics are linked, topic names are shown spaced out in a smaller font, and are separated by » quotes. In addition, a parentlist SetGetPlugin variable is set to the parent list, and a parent variable is set to the immediate parent. This can be retrieved later in the topic using %GET{parentlist}% and %GET{parent}%, respectively.
    • Example raw text:
      ---+ %PARENTBC% Myself and me
    • Expands to:

      Grandma And Granpa » Mother And Father » Myself and me

  • Format of a NewWikiWord link:
  • Note that $text is the topic link text, $summary is the HTML-cleaned topic link text, $topic is the name of the new topic, and $web is the name of the web for the new topic. Values are taken from the link syntax [[$web.$topic][$text]]. For normal plain WikiWord links $text and $topic are the same. The value of $web is the current web unless the link is in the format $web.$topic.

      • #Set NEWLINKFORMAT = $text

  • User signature format. The SIGNATUREFORMAT is used when creating new topics, BUBBLESIGNATUREFORMAT is used when adding comments with CommentPlugin:

      • Set SIGNATUREFORMAT = -- TWiki Guest - 2017-10-21

The desired expanded signature format in a topic is %USERSIG{%WIKINAME% - %DATE%}%, this with unexpanded USERSIG, but expanded WIKINAME and DATE. A hack using CALCULATE is used to keep USERSIG unexpanded: %CALCULATE{%U}%SERSIG{...}%
    • alternative legacy setting:
      • #Set SIGNATUREFORMAT = -- TWikiGuest - 2017-10-21

  • If you use non WikiWords for topic names (for example "Expenses" or "Mighty1") and if you use bracket notation to link to those topics, it is useful to turn of all warnings (like: "WARNING: This topic name is not recommended because it will not be linked automatically") and checkboxes ("Allow non WikiWord for the new topic name"). Can be overwritten by web preferences. Set to on to activate:
    • Set HIDE_NON_WIKI_WORD_WARNINGS =
 
  • Warn if %INCLUDE{}% of topic fails: Fail silently if empty or off. Output warning message (defined in templates/oopsalerts.tmpl) if set to on. Otherwise output specific text (use $topic for topic). You can override this in web preferences, or by using a warn="..." parameter with %INCLUDE{}% :

Creating New Preference Variables

You can introduce new VARIABLES and use them in your topics and templates. There is no need to change the TWiki engine (Perl scripts).

  • A preference is defined in a TWikiShorthand bullet item: [3 spaces] * [space] Set NAME = value
    Example (as a nested bullet item, indented 6 spaces):
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #FFFFC0
Changed:
<
<
  • Preferences are used as TWikiVariables by enclosing the name in percent signs: %. Example:
>
>
  • Preferences are used as TWikiVariables by enclosing the name in percent signs: %. Example:
 
    • When you write variable %WEBBGCOLOR%, it gets expanded to #FFD8AA .

  • ALERT! The sequential order of the preference settings is significant. Define preferences that use other preferences FIRST. For example, set WEBCOPYRIGHT before WIKIWEBMASTER since the copyright notice uses the TWiki administrator e-mail address.

They can be selectively overwritten on the individual web level (see WebPreferences in each web), topic level (the topic being rendered), and on the user level (create preferences in your user account topic in the Main web, ex: TWikiGuest).

Creating New Preference Variables

 
Changed:
<

Notes:
  • A preference is defined as:
    6 spaces * Set NAME = value
    Example:
>
>
You can introduce new VARIABLES and use them in your topics and templates. There is no need to change the TWiki engine (Perl scripts).
  • A preference is defined in a TWikiShorthand bullet item: [3 spaces] * [space] Set NAME = value
    Example (as a nested bullet item, indented 6 spaces):
 
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #FFFFC0
Changed:
<
<
  • Preferences are used as TWikiVariables by enclosing the name in percent signs. Example:
    • When you write variable %WEBBGCOLOR% , it gets expanded to #FFD8AA .
  • 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 variables and use them in your topics and templates. There is no need to change the URCS engine (Perl scripts).

  • Preferences are used as TWikiVariables by enclosing the name in percent signs: %. Example:

  • ALERT! The sequential order of the preference settings is significant. Define preferences that use other preferences FIRST. For example, set WEBCOPYRIGHT before WIKIWEBMASTER since the copyright notice uses the webmaster email address.

URCS Site-Level Preferences

The following settings are site-level preferences , e.g. affecting all users in all URCS webs. These preferences can be overwritten by web preferences (topic WebPreferences in each URCS web) and user preferences (your personal topic, i.e. TWikiGuest in the URCS.Main web)

Preferences:

  • List of topics of a web: (the second line of a topic, is overwritten by web preferences)

  • Copyright notice:
    • Set WEBCOPYRIGHT = Copyright © 2000 by the contributing authors. \nAll material on this collaboration tool is the property of the contributing authors.

  • Web specific background color: (is overwritten by web preferences)
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #C0C0C0

  • Exclude web from a web="all" search: (Set to on for hidden webs; is overwritten by web preferences)
    • Set NOSEARCHALL =

  • Horizontal size of text edit box: (can be overwritten by user preferences)
    • Set EDITBOXWIDTH = 70

  • Vertical size of text edit box: (can be overwritten by user preferences)
    • Set EDITBOXHEIGHT = 15

  • Default state of the link check box in the attach file page. Check box is initially checked if Set ATTACHLINKBOX = CHECKED , unchecked if empty ( Set ATTACHLINKBOX = ). If checked, a link is created to the attached file at the end of the topic: (can be overwritten by user preferences)
    • Set ATTACHLINKBOX =

  • http-equiv meta tags for view, rdiff, attach, search* scripts:
    • Set HTTP_EQUIV_ON_VIEW =

  • http-equiv meta tags for edit script. Example to expire immediately:
    Set HTTP_EQUIV_ON_EDIT = <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="%GMTIME{"day month, year - hour:min:sec"}% GMT">
    • Set HTTP_EQUIV_ON_EDIT =

  • http-equiv meta tags for preview script:
    • Set HTTP_EQUIV_ON_PREVIEW =

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 #FFD8AA .
  • 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 variables and use them in your topics and templates. There is no need to change the URCS engine (Perl scripts).

Related Topics:

  • WebPreferences has preferences of the URCS.TWiki web.
  • TWikiUsers has a list of user topics. User topics can have optional user preferences.
  • TWikiVariables has a list of common %VARIABLES% .
