Nustar Wiki.Sandbox Web Preferences

The following settings are web preferences of the Nustar Wiki.Sandbox 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 Nustar Wiki.Main web)

Preferences:

  • List of topics of the Nustar Wiki.Sandbox web:

  • Web specific background color: (Pick a lighter one of the StandardColors)
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #D0D0D0

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

  • Users or groups who are not / are allowed to change topics in the Sandbox web: (See AccessControl)
    • Set DENYWEBCHANGE =
    • Set ALLOWWEBCHANGE =

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

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

Notes:
  • A preference is defined as:
    6 spaces * Set NAME = value
    Example:
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #FFFFC0
  • Preferences are used as System.Macros by enclosing the name in percent signs. Example:
    • When you write variable %WEBBGCOLOR% , it gets expanded to #B9DAFF .
  • 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 Nustar Wiki engine (Perl scripts).

Related Topics:
  • DefaultPreferences has site-level preferences.
  • WikiUsers has a list of user topics. User topics can have optional user preferences.
  • System.Macros has a list of common %VARIABLES%.
  • AccessControl explains how to restrict access by users or groups.
