Guide Lines for sponsor presence on TWiki.org for Extension Topics


This topic is a guideline for recognising sponsers on extensions such a plugins, skins, etc. A general guideline for sponser presence on TWiki.org can be found at GuideLinesSponsorPresenceOnTWikiDotOrg

Most extensions that are contributed to TWiki come from individuals, or groups of individuals, who want to share their work. This is one of the great strengths of this project, and we want to say a HUGE THANKS to everyone!

Sometimes sponsors fund part or all of an extension project, or support it by providing services or equipment. They do this in part in exchange for visible acknowledgement. These simple guidelines are designed to help extension authors strike an appropriate balance when recognising sponsors in the TWiki.org Plugins web.

General guidelines

  1. Only upload free extensions
    • All extensions uploaded to the Plugins web should be licensed under the GPL, or another license that is wholly compatible with the GPL.
  2. Don't redirect to an external download.
    • The TWiki.org plugins web has a process for downloads (attaching archives to the topic), and all contributors should follow it. Do not link to off-site download pages. It's important that TWiki.org is able to track downloads, and that maintainers other than the original contributors can upload updates.


  1. If you want to have a corporate logo, or image incorporating a corporate logo, at the top of your plugin page, the image should fit in a 200x200 pixel box and must be plain gif, jpg or png with no animations or flash. Such images should be floated at the top right of the page e.g. <img style="float:right" src="%ATTACHURL%/wheelchair.jpg" width="200" height="200" />. Other images, such as screen captures, should not carry logos (unless they are critical to the presentation).
  2. Read TWiki.TWikiLogos#Right_to_use_Trademarked_Artwork for restrictions on the use of the TWiki logo


  1. List sponsors in a simple bullet list in the 'Info' section of the topic. Sponsor names and logos may be linked to sponsor websites. Logos, if used, should be no larger than maximum WxH 100x20 pixels and must be plain gif, jpg or png with no animations or flash. Example:
