Feature Proposal: Add MovedSkin to Core TWiki Distribution

movedskin-example.png

Motivation

Sometimes a TWiki site gets moved to a new location with different URL. It is helpful to have a skin that redirects users on the old site to the new site.

Description and Documentation

  • Create a new MovedSkin:
    • Simple screen with a yellow message that has a link to the new site
    • Message is configurable with a MOVEDMESSAGE preferences setting
    • Skin is activated as usual with a Set SKIN = moved message
  • Add the new MovedSkin to core TWiki distribution

The MovedSkin is now added to the core in SVN trunk. TWikiUpgradeGuide is also updated with a new "Switch-Over" section.
