Discussion and Answer

Each plugin enhances TWiki in its on way, typically by adding a new TWiki Variable. For example, the CalendarPlugin adds a new %CALENDAR{}% variable. Consult each plugin's documentation, accessible from your TWiki.InstalledPlugins topic. Find this topic via TWiki web >> User Reference pulldown >> InstalledPlugins.

Hi Mr. Peter Thoeny

Thank you for your quick response. i appreciate that. I looked on the tree plugin documentation as you suggested and found the syntax on it. But I think my problem is not more with the syntax but maybe with the place where I must place this syntax. I created a new web and named it test web, after I confirm that the TreePlugin is enabled I passed the syntax into a web box 5 (Edit topic to customize) has showing below: %TREEVIEW{topic="WebHome" topic="TreeTop" formatting="ullist"}% see the example below:

<span class="WYSIWYG_PROTECTED"><br />%DASHBOARD{ section="box_start"<br /> title="Box 4"<br /> contentstyle="overflow: hidden;"<br />}%</span><span class="WYSIWYG_HIDDENWHITESPACE" style="{encoded: 'n'};"> </span>Edit topic to customize</p> %TREEVIEW{topic="WebHome" topic="TreeTop" formatting="ullist"}%

Doing that, I was expecting to see something similar to what is showing in the link http://wiki.tut.fi/System/TreePluginSamples but it does not list out anything, not even the syntax. after i edit the page in the html side only i see is that my html has changed and comes as follows: <p><span class="WYSIWYG_PROTECTED"><br />%TREEVIEW{topic="WebHome" topic="TreeTop" formatting="ullist"}%</span></p> That is why I suspect that maybe my real problem is where I shall call the plugin
