Motivation

Many administrative topics have no parent. This makes dynamic indexing, topic trees, etc, less useful.

In my own TWiki, I have created a WebAdmin topic (in the TWiki, Main, and _default webs). This topic is the parent for all distributed topics except for WebHome.

Description and Documentation

WebAdmin should be the parent for all (distributed) topics that start with the string "Web" except for WebHome.

This affects Usability and Search but in a transparent way (it should not cause any backward compatibility issues).

Discussion

Feature discussed at KampalaReleaseMeeting2017x04x06:

  • No commit date and developer, wait until committed developer
  • Question if better to add a new admin topic, or if to simply parent all top level user topics to WebHome
  • Better to make distinction between user topics such as WebSearch and admin topics such as WebPreferences
  • If new admin topic possibly name it WebMaintenance based on the purpose of those topics, and users will understand and avoid maintenance
