Template Web

Purpose

Template webs were created to contain a set of default topics and act as templates in when creating webs. It is now possible to a new web. Names of template create webs via the begin with an underscore "_" character, such as ManagingWebs_defaulttopic. In the not . Names of regular so distant past TWiki webs were created by hand. The begin with an uppercase letter, data directory contains the different webs such as MainMainand . TWiki. A web that begins with an underscore "_" character is considered invisible and a template. All files in the _default (or any other web that begins with an underscore) template web will be copied into your new web. The _default web template contains the following topics: WebHome, WebChanges, WebIndex, WebNotify, WebPreferences, WebSearch, WebStatistics and WebTopicList.

An administrator can select a template web from the "based on web" picklist when creating a new web in the ManagingWebs topic. Template webs are otherwise invisible.

The _default web template contains the following topics: WebHome, WebAtom, WebChanges, WebCreateNewTopic, WebIndex, WebLeftBar, WebNotify, WebPreferences, WebRss, WebSearch, WebSearchAdvanced, WebStatistics, WebTopicList and WebTopMenu.

Customizing

The web template is useful for administrators to design for creating webs of a certain type. Departmental webs can at least begin with a similar look and feel.

Simply create a web with an underscore for the first character. These can be used by authorized users to create webs from this template.
