Jamaro Web Preferences

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


  • List of topics of the DBG/400.Jamaro web:

  • Web specific background color: (Pick a lighter one of the %TWIKIWEB%.StandardColors)
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #66FFCC

  • List this web in the %TWIKIWEB%.SiteMap:
    • If yes, set SITEMAPLIST to on, do not set NOSEARCHALL, 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. Jamaro.Topic links.
    • Set SITEMAPLIST = on
    • Set SITEMAPWHAT = TWiki web for the Rowe family
    • Set SITEMAPUSETO = ...collaborate on, well anything, really...

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

  • Prevent automatic linking of WikiWords? and acronyms (if set to on); link WikiWords (if empty); can be overwritten by web preferences:
    • Set NOAUTOLINK =
    • Note: Use the [[...][...]] syntax to link topics in case you disabled WikiWord linking. The <noautolink> ... </noautolink> syntax can be used to prevents links within a block of text.

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

  • Users or groups who are not / are allowed to view / change / rename topics in the Jamaro web: (See %TWIKIWEB%.TWikiAccessControl)

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

  • 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 %TWIKIWEB%.TWikiVariables by enclosing the name in percent signs. Example:
    • When you write variable %WEBBGCOLOR% , it gets expanded to #66FFCC .
  • 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 DBG/400 engine (Perl scripts).
