Foswiki.Issuecrawler Web Preferences

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


  • List of topics of the Foswiki.Issuecrawler web:

  • Web specific background color: (Pick a lighter one of the %TWIKIWEB%.StandardColors)
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #868BD7

  • 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. Issuecrawler.Topic links.
    • Set SITEMAPLIST = on
    • Set SITEMAPWHAT = info about tbe issuecrawler
    • Set SITEMAPUSETO = ... to give users information about the issuecrawler and related projects.

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

  • Default template for new topics and form(s) for this web:

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

  • 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 #868BD7 .
  • 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).
