TWiki Web Preferences

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

Web Preferences Settings

These settings override the defaults for this web only. See full list of defaults with explanation.

    • Set WEBHEADERART = /twiki/pub/TWiki/WebPreferences/Dakar.gif
    • Set SITEMAPLIST = on
    • Set SITEMAPWHAT = Welcome, Registration, and other StartingPoints; TWiki history & Wiki style; All the docs...
    • Set SITEMAPUSETO = [ Minds for computing. Hearts for serving. ]

    • #Set DENYWEBVIEW =
    • #Set ALLOWWEBVIEW =

    • Set ALLOWWEBCHANGE = TWikiAdminGroup

  • Exclude web from a web="all" search: (Set to on for hidden webs).
    • Set NOSEARCHALL = on
    • Note: This setting is automatically configured when you create a web

  • Web preferences that are not allowed to be overridden by user or topic preferences:
    • Set FINALPREFERENCES = NOSEARCHALL, ATTACHFILESIZELIMIT, WIKIWEBMASTER, WEBCOPYRIGHT, WEBTOPICLIST, DENYWEBVIEW, ALLOWWEBVIEW, DENYWEBCHANGE, ALLOWWEBCHANGE, ALLOWWEBMANAGE, DENYWEBMANAGE

Help on Preferences

  • A preference setting is defined by:
    3 or 6 spaces * Set NAME = value
    Example:
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #FFFFC0
  • A preferences setting can be disabled with a # sign. Remove the # sign to enable a local customisation. Example:
  • 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 your own preferences variables and use them in your topics and templates.
