I use TWiki for

  • Sun's ASIC and Sparc Processor development Intranet portal.
    • I contributed most of the Hierarchical Webs code after developing it for the Sun internal ASIC portal.
    • Most of these changes have been available since DakarRelease, and I've migrated MegaTWiki to an addon package (still need to post this).

Ways I'd like to see TWiki improved

  • Addition of Slick Administration tools (See MegaTWiki)
  • Addition of LDAP-based user or group management.
  • Addition of faster search engine.
  • Movement of major UI functionality out of pattern templates into a stable core template.

Topics I'm interested in

My TWiki Links

My Personal Preferences

  • Show tool-tip topic info on mouse-over of WikiWord links, on or off:
    • Set LINKTOOLTIPINFO = off

  • Preference for the editor, default is the WYSIWYG editor. The options are raw, wysiwyg:
    • Set EDITMETHOD = wysiwyg

  • More preferences TWiki has system wide preferences settings defined in TWikiPreferences. You can customize preferences settings to your needs: To overload a system setting, (1) do a "raw view" on TWikiPreferences, (2) copy a Set VARIABLE = value bullet, (3) do a "raw edit" of your user profile page, (4) add the bullet to the bullet list above, and (5) customize the value as needed. Make sure the settings render as real bullets (in "raw edit", a bullet requires 3 or 6 spaces before the asterisk).
