  • [Ref-By] - displays all the TWiki topics with links to the current topic
  • [Diffs] - generates a page showing every change made to the current topic, with names, dates, and changes made (diffs)
  • r1.3 | > | r1.2 (ex) - view most recent revision and changes
  • [More] - opens up a new screen containing additional controls

It looks complicated, but the basics you need to begin with are very simple to use. The flexible and optional features are ready when you care to learn about them - the only way to confuse yourself or your site set-up and users is by using features you really don't need. Unlike the usual expensive, complex collaboration and project management packages, TWiki is fully functional and effective just by typing in text and making WikiWord links. All the additional features are there, but only if you need them!

  • Some controls are self-explanatory and also include instructions and help links.
  • Experiment. You can always Cancel an edit or (using revision control) go Back whenever you like.
  • Get in-depth info from the complete documentation, including the User's Guide, Configuration Manual and TWiki Reference.

Renaming, moving or deleting topics


Changed:

You can now rename, move and delete individual topics from your browser. All three options are available by clicking More on the control strip at the bottom of every page. The access settings for a topic, web or entire site may be disabled for one or more of the three options, depending on your site set-up and personal permissions. In any case, all three are similar and extremely easy to use.

  1. Go to the top you want to change, click More > Rename/move
  2. To move or delete: select the target web (Trash to delete)from the pull-down menu (otherwise, leave on the current web)
Line: 94 to 128

HELP Deleting means moving a topic to the Trash web. Since all webs share the one Trash, name conflicts may come up.

Reviewing and Reverting

RCS revision control automatically saves all topic changes. To look at earlier versions of a topic, click on Diffs link in topic commands. If you would like to revert to an earlier version or reclaim part of an earlier version, just copy from the old topic revision to the current topic revision. This is a step by step set of instructions:
  1. In the Diffs view, take note of what version of the topic you want to reclaim and then return to View.
  2. Select More in the topic commands.
  3. Under "View previous topic revision," enter the version number you want to reclaim and check "raw text format." Then click on "View revision."
  4. Select either the portion of that version you want to reclaim or the entire text of the topic if you want to revert completely to that version. Select Copy under your browser's Edit menu.
  5. Return to the most recent version of the topic and select Edit from the topic commands.
  6. Either paste in the portion of the topic you wish to reclaimed or replace the entire text with the text you copied from the earlier version.
  7. Preview and save the topic.

How to create and edit a page

Adding and editing information on existing pages, and creating new pages, is TWiki's main function.

  • To modify a topic, click the [Edit] link at the bottom left of every page. An editing window appears. Type away. Use the GoodStyle and TextFormattingRules links to get pop-up window help.
    • Click [Preview Changes] to see how your edit looks.
    • Click [Save Changes] to save.

  • To add a new page, the simplest way is to type a new WikiName on an existing page. When the page is saved, the new name will appear highlighted, with a ? at the end: click the ? and a new edit window appears. Enter, preview and save as usual. The new page now exists.

How to attach files and use other features

The color-coded control strip at the bottom of every page displays a series of links, including [Attach] (for attachments), [Ref-by] (to display referring pages), and [More], which opens a new screen of additional controls).

  • Most controls are self-explanatory, and also include explanatory text and help links.
  • Experiment. You can always cancel or go Back whenever you like.
  • Get in-depth info from the complete documentation, including the User's Guide and Reference Manual.

How to rename, move or delete a page

You can now rename, move and delete individual topics from your browser. All three options are available by clicking More on the control strip at the bottom of every page. Access to one or more of these three options, for a topic, a web or an entire site, may be available to administrators only. In any case, all three are similar and extremely self-explanatory.

HELP Deleting means moving the topic to the Trash web. Since all webs share the one Trash, name conflicts may come up.

ALERT! NOTE: Keep in mind that moving a topic from a view-restricted web to a public web or the Trash web will compromise security.
