TOTEM Web Preferences

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


  • List of topics of the TWiki.TOTEM web:

  • Web specific background color: (Pick a lighter one of the StandardColors)
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #cc0000

  • List this web in the 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. TOTEM.Topic links.

NB NB! IF you apply access restrictions, remove the "on" for the sitemap flag (SITEMAPLIST =)

    • Set SITEMAPWHAT = TOTEM experiment at the CERN LHC
    • Set SITEMAPUSETO = ...collaborate on the TOTEM experiment at the CERN LHC

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

  • 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.

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

NB NB NB: If you apply access restrictions, you MUST remove the web from the sitemap (see above)

  • Web preferences that are not allowed to be overridden by user preferences:

  • Logo settings
    • Set WIKILOGOIMG = totemtwiki.png
    • Set WIKILOGOURL = WebHome

  • Style settings
    • Set WEBHEADERBGCOLOR = #ffffff

  • Tables
    • Set TABLEATTRIBUTES = tableborder="0" cellpadding="1"


  • A preference is defined as:
    6 spaces * Set NAME = value
  • Preferences are used as TWikiVariables by enclosing the name in percent signs. Example:
    • When you write variable %WEBBGCOLOR% , it gets expanded to =#cc0000 = .
  • 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 TWiki engine (Perl scripts).
