Local customisations of site-wide preferences

Info Site-level preferences are located in TWikiPreferences, however this TWikiPreferences prefs topic has override priority and should be used for local customisations. This allows for easier upgrades as you don't need to worry about the shipped preferences clobbering yours. It's easier to keep a handle on if you only copy over the settings you actually change.

Quick edit of existing preferences (edit the topic text to set new preferences)

  • FINALPREFERENCES locks site-level preferences that are not allowed to be overridden by WebPreferences or user preferences:
    • Set FINALPREFERENCES = ATTACHFILESIZELIMIT, PREVIEWBGIMAGE, WIKITOOLNAME, WIKIHOMEURL, ALLOWROOTCHANGE, DENYROOTCHANGE, TWIKILAYOUTURL, TWIKISTYLEURL, TWIKICOLORSURL, USERSWEB, SYSTEMWEB, DOCWEB

TWiki Platform Settings

  • TWiki site name:
    • Set WIKITOOLNAME = Everiware

  • Apparently these variables change name in TWiki 4.2
    • Set SYSTEMWEB = TWiki
    • Set USERSWEB = Main

  • Image, URL and alternate tooltip text of the logo for this installation: you should change these settings for your site, or they can be overwridden in WebPreferences for individual webs by defining these variables there.

  • Maximum size of FileAttachments in KB, 0 for no limit:
    • Set ATTACHFILESIZELIMIT = 0

E-mail Settings

    • Set TRIPCLAIM = $FORMAT( NUMBER, 2, $ROUND( $EVAL(2 * $GET(ALLOWANCE) * $T(R$ROW(0):C5) * $GET($T(R$ROW(0):C4)) ) ,2) )
