Network Time Foundation's NTP Support Wiki.Dev Web Preferences

The following settings are web preferences of the Network Time Foundation's NTP Support Wiki.Dev web. These preferences overwrite the site-level preferences in WebPreferences, and can be overwritten by user preferences (your personal topic, i.e. WikiGuest in the Network Time Foundation's NTP Support Wiki.Users web)

Preferences:

  • List of topics of the Network Time Foundation's NTP Support Wiki.Dev web:

  • Web specific background color: (Pick a lighter one of the StandardColors)
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #F0F0FF

  • 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. Dev.Topic links.
    • Set SITEMAPLIST = on
    • Set SITEMAPWHAT = NTP Developer's Web.
    • Set SITEMAPUSETO = ...collaborate on the development of NTP.

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

  • Users or groups who are not / are allowed to view / change / rename topics in the Dev web: (See AccessControl)
    • Set DENYWEBVIEW =
    • Set ALLOWWEBVIEW =
    • Set DENYWEBCHANGE = WikiGuest
    • Set ALLOWWEBCHANGE =
    • Set DENYWEBRENAME =
    • Set ALLOWWEBRENAME = AdminGroup

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

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

Notes:
  • A preference is defined as:
    6 spaces * Set NAME = value
    Example:
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #FFFFC0
  • Preferences are used as MacrosQuickReference by enclosing the name in percent signs. Example:
    • When you write variable %WEBBGCOLOR% , it gets expanded to #F0F0FF .
  • 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 Network Time Foundation's NTP Support Wiki engine (Perl scripts).
