Foswiki.TIG Web Preferences

The following settings are web preferences of the Foswiki.TIG web. These preferences overwrite the site-level preferences in DefaultPreferences, and can be overwritten by user preferences (your personal topic, i.e. WikiGuest in the Foswiki.Main web)

Preferences:

  • List of topics of the Foswiki.TIG web:
    • Set WEBTOPICLIST =
  • Web specific background color: (Pick a lighter one of the StandardColors)
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #D8E5E8

  • 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. TIG.Topic links.
    • Set SITEMAPLIST = on
    • Set SITEMAPWHAT = TIG Documentation
    • Set SITEMAPUSETO = Document systems and services maintained by TIG

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

  • Set WIKIWEBLIST =

  • 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)
    • System.WebTopicEditTemplate: Site-level default template
    • TWikiForms?: How to enable form(s)
    • Set WEBFORMS =

  • Users or groups who are not / are allowed to view / change / rename topics in the TIG web: (See TWikiAccessControl?)
    • Set DENYWEBVIEW =
    • Set ALLOWWEBVIEW =
    • Set DENYWEBCHANGE = WikiGuest
    • Set ALLOWWEBCHANGE =
    • Set DENYWEBRENAME =
    • Set ALLOWWEBRENAME =

  • Users or groups allowed to change or rename this WebPreferences topic: (I.e. AdminGroup)
    • Set ALLOWTOPICCHANGE =
    • Set ALLOWTOPICRENAME =

  • Web preferences that are not allowed to be overridden by user preferences:
    • Set FINALPREFERENCES = WEBTOPICLIST, DENYWEBVIEW, ALLOWWEBVIEW, DENYWEBCHANGE, ALLOWWEBCHANGE, DENYWEBRENAME, ALLOWWEBRENAME

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 #93BD2E .
  • 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 Foswiki engine (Perl scripts).
