Variables in this category:

AQUA -- start aqua colored text

BB -- bullet with line break

BB2 -- level 2 bullet with line break

BB3 -- level 3 bullet with line break

BB4 -- level 4 bullet with line break

BLACK -- start black colored text

BLUE -- start blue colored text

BR -- line break

BROWN -- start brown colored text

BUBBLESIG -- show bubble box and user signature with profile picture icon

  • Syntax: %BUBBLESIG{WikiName}% or %BUBBLESIG{WikiName - YYYY-MM-DD}%
  • The parameter can be either just the WikiName of a user, or by convention the WikiName followed by a dash and the date
  • Example:
    -- %BUBBLESIG{TWikiGuest - 2016-09-21}%
  • Expands to:
    -- TWiki Guest - 2016-09-21
  • Category: EditingAndContentUpdateVariables, FormattingAndRenderingVariables, UsersAndAuthenticationVariables
  • Related: USERREPORT, USERSIG, UserList, UserReports (this topic)

BULLET -- bullet sign

CARET -- caret symbol

COPY -- Copyright symbol

DASHBOARD -- build a dashboard with banner and boxes

ENDBG -- end background color section

ENDCOLOR -- end colored text

ENDCOLUMNS -- end a responsive multi-column page layout

ENTITY{string} -- encode a string to HTML entities

  • Encode "special" characters to HTML entities. Useful to encode text properly for HTML input fields.
  • Encoded characters:
    • all non-printable ASCII characters below space, including newline ("\n") and linefeed ("\r")
    • Space
    • HTML special characters "<", ">", "&", single quote (') and double quote (")
    • TWiki special characters "%", "[", "]", "@", "_", "*", "=" and "|"
  • Syntax: %ENTITY{string}%
  • Example: %ENTITY{text with "quotes" and
    newline}%
    expands to text&#32;with&#32;&#34;quotes&#34;&#32;and&#10;newline
  • Notes:
    • To protect against cross-site scripting (XSS), always entity encode text intended for HTML input fields. This is especially true if text is received dynamically via URLPARAM or the like.
      Example: <input type="text" name="address" value="%ENTITY{any text}%" />
    • %ENTITY{string}% is roughly equivalent to %ENCODE{ "string" type="html" }%, but the latter cannot handle strings that have double quotes embedded in it.

FOURCOLUMNS -- responsive four-column page layout

  • Write %FOURCOLUMNS% ...text... %ENDCOLUMNS% to get a page layout with four columns. The layout is responsive, e.g. it automatically adjusts to a lower number of columns (4 => 3 => 2 => 1) depending on the window width or screen width of the device used. The 300 pixels minimum width of a column determines the number of columns shown. Embedded images scale down automatically to the width of the screen if needed.
  • Syntax: %FOURCOLUMNS% ... %ENDCOLUMNS%
  • Example:
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Sed viverra ante ac augue sagittis semper. Vestibulum sed urna quam. Phasellus eleifend dolor id dui dictum lobortis. Etiam enim erat, fermentum eget libero non, pretium vestibulum nisi. Nam eget nisi diam. Cras egestas, nibh a malesuada hendrerit, tellus turpis gravida dolor, at fermentum ipsum libero id eros. Mauris a nunc turpis. Fusce turpis dui, blandit nec maximus at, sagittis et arcu. Duis eros sapien, accumsan sed varius eget, elementum eu sapien. Nulla congue, nulla efficitur gravida porta, leo ex feugiat purus, sit amet sagittis leo arcu at magna. Pellentesque eleifend, libero quis consectetur tincidunt, orci ipsum scelerisque turpis, vulputate feugiat risus orci non odio. Integer id enim turpis. Cras et nisl quis massa ornare maximus id sit amet justo. Mauris at mi eget nisi imperdiet ullamcorper.

  • Expands to a formatted list of user groups in your TWiki. The variable is intended to be used in TWikiGroups, to allow a group listing for various user mapping managers.
  • Syntax: %GROUPS{"format" ...}%
  • Supported parameters:
    Parameter: Description: Default:
    header="" Table header. Standard format tokens are expanded. To omit the header, specify an empty value or "none". "| *Group* | *Members* |"

  • Syntax: %HIDE{ any text }%
  • Expands to: (empty string)
  • Notes:
    • Using HIDE is not a replacement for access control, because edit and raw view still show the content.
    • Variables inside HIDE still get expanded because variables execute inside out, e.g. you can't use it to speed up slow variables.
    • <!-- HTML comments --> also hide content from the user, but unlike HIDE, HTML comments are sent to the browser.

MAKETEXT -- translate text using TWiki's I18N infrastructure

  • Text in MAKETEXT is translated into another language at page view time if the user activates a language other than the default English language.
  • Syntax: %MAKETEXT{"string" args="..."}%
  • Supported parameters:
    Parameter Description Default
    "text" or string="text" The text to be displayed. none
    args="param1, param2" a comma-separated list of arguments to be interpolated in the string, replacing the [_N] placeholders in it. none
  • Examples:
    • %MAKETEXT{string="Notes:"}%
      expands to
      Notes:
    • %MAKETEXT{"If you have any questions, please contact [_1]." args="%WIKIWEBMASTER%"}%
      expands to
      If you have any questions, please contact peter09@thoenyPLEASENOSPAM.org.
    • %MAKETEXT{"Did you want to ~[~[[_1]~]~[reset [_2]'s password~]~]?" args="%SYSTEMWEB%.ResetPassword, %WIKINAME%"}%
      expands to
      Did you want to reset TWikiGuest's password?
  • Notes:
    • TWiki will translate the string to the current user's language only if it has such string in its translation table for that language.
    • Ampersands (&) followed by one letter (one of a...z, A...Z -- say, X) in the translatable string will be translated to <span class='twikiAccessKey'>X</span>. This is used to implement access keys. If you want to write an actual amperstand that stays just before a letter, write two consecutive amperstands (&&): they will be transformed in just one.
    • Square brackets ~[ and ~] in the text have a special meaning and need to be escaped using ~[ and ~], respectively.
    • Translatable string starting with underscores (_) are reserved. You must not use translatable phrases starting with an underscore.
    • Make sure that the translatable string is constant. Specially, do not include %VARIABLES% inside the translatable strings - string would not get translated because variables get expanded before the %MAKETEXT{...}% itself is handled.

    • Note: This is deprecated. Do not use it. Use %STARTSECTION{type="templateonly"}% .. %ENDSECTION{type="templateonly"}% instead (see TWikiTemplates for more details).

THREECOLUMNS -- responsive three-column page layout

  • Write %THREECOLUMNS% ...text... %ENDCOLUMNS% to get a page layout with three columns. The layout is responsive, e.g. it automatically adjusts to a lower number of columns (3 => 2 => 1) depending on the window width or screen width of the device used. The 300 pixels minimum width of a column determines the number of columns shown. Embedded images scale down automatically to the width of the screen if needed.
  • Syntax: %THREECOLUMNS% ... %ENDCOLUMNS%
  • Example:
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Sed viverra ante ac augue sagittis semper. Vestibulum sed urna quam. Phasellus eleifend dolor id dui dictum lobortis. Etiam enim erat, fermentum eget libero non, pretium vestibulum nisi. Nam eget nisi diam. Cras egestas, nibh a malesuada hendrerit, tellus turpis gravida dolor, at fermentum ipsum libero id eros. Mauris a nunc turpis. Fusce turpis dui, blandit nec maximus at, sagittis et arcu. Duis eros sapien, accumsan sed varius eget, elementum eu sapien. Nulla congue, nulla efficitur gravida porta, leo ex feugiat purus, sit amet sagittis leo arcu at magna. Pellentesque eleifend, libero quis consectetur tincidunt, orci ipsum scelerisque turpis, vulputate feugiat risus orci non odio. Integer id enim turpis. Cras et nisl quis massa ornare maximus id sit amet justo. Mauris at mi eget nisi imperdiet ullamcorper.
