This started in Support.WebNameAsWikiName. The current spec is that the Web name cannot be a WikiName, only UPPER or UPPERlower.

The spec can be relaxed to allow also WikiWords for Web names. The change is in TWikiAlphaRelease and at TWiki.org, to be in CairoRelease. Testing is appreciated, e.g. does it work for web creation, topic renames/moves, attachment renames/moves etc.

I did some testing and, as anticipated, found some side-effects: Some places have now question mark links since web names get linked to non-existing topics. That is, templates and skins need to be updated: A stand alone %WEB% (not %WEB%.%TOPIC%) within the body tags (excluding head tag) needs to be escaped if preceeded by space or parenthesis, e.g. like <nop>%WEB%.

ATTENTION SKIN DEVELOPERS: Your skin should be upgraded if it has standalone %WEB% variables.

The same issue possibly occures in topic text, especially in the TWiki web. This needs to be investigated, help is appreciated.

I fixed some topic text in the TWiki web. Doc in ManagingWebs is updated as well.

I've posted an addition to FindElsewherePlugin for systems running WebNameAsWikiName such that WikiWords that should be a reference to a the name of anotherWeb get pointed at otherWeb.WebHome

I've updated WebSiteTools to fix a problem whereby the %INCLUDINGWEB% would be linked as a WikiWord on the front page of a web using a WikiWord as its name. Not very elegant using noautolink, but nop would not work in this case.

The noautolink tag should only be used on a line by itself. Why does nop not work?

This topic is marked as FeatureDone but has 0% DocProgress. It looks like Peter updated some documentation in the TWiki web so can it be set to 100% or is there more to do (so it should be set to DocsToDo)?

Reassigned to PeterThoeny, because nothing involving ColasNahaboo is getting completed and we really don't want to have to strip this feature back out for Cairo.....
