The most current version of this feature is documented in TWikiVariables. For advanced formatting capabilities new in 01-Dec-2001 TWiki, see TWiki Search Formatting.

An inline search displays a search result within a topic. The idea is to show a list of topics in a Wiki page that meet a certain criteria, for example all reported bugs.

An example application is a simple bug tracking system, where you set the Topic Classification of a topic to BugReport, BugAssigned or BugResolved using the category feature of TWiki. The BugReport page shows the list of reported bugs, which can be realized with the proposed inline search feature.

Proposed syntax:

%SEARCH{"string" web="Main" scope="topic" ...}%

It is composed of the search string, followed by optional name="value" pairs:

Pair: Description: Default:
web="Name" Specify Wiki web to search Current web
scope="topic" Search topic name (title) Topic text (body)
regex="on" RegularExpression search Literal search
casesensitive="on" Case sensitive search Ignore case
nosummary="on" Show topic title only Show topic summary
nosearch="on" Suppress search string Show search string
nototal="on" Do not show number of topics found Show number
bookview="on" Show entire text of each found topic bookview off

See also SearchEnhancmentsRFC

The syntax of the %INCLUDE% variable needs to be changed to conform to the syntax of the inline search variable:

  • Old: %INCLUDE:"file"%     (can be used for compatibility)
  • New: %INCLUDE{"file"}%
