Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

TWikiPreferences contains

  • Shortcuts to user information
    • Set WIKINAME = %USERINFO{format="$wikiname"}%
    • Set USERNAME = %USERINFO{format="$username"}%
    • Set WIKIUSERNAME = %USERINFO{format="$wikiusername"}%

Should this actually be format="Main.$wikiname", etc., or some such? Currently the first two appears to point to whatever the current web is.

I think those settings should be removed now since it is handled in the core.

SVN 8627, removed from TWikiPreferences.

-- SP

no, they should not be removed, they are only being handeld by the core by default if they are not defined in the preferences.

if you read the code I wrote, they are being prepared for deprecation.

and no, WIKINAME and USERNAME should not have a WEB infront of them see TWikiVariables.

-- SD

Any chance of a short document on how this deprication preparation procedure is thought to work, Sven - perhaps in TWiki:Codev.ProcessToDocUndocumentedStuff? Just adding it to TWikiPreferences without further comments confuses more than does good, imho.

-- SP

Lets defer the deprecation to next release. Too many other things to attend to.

Undeferred, post Dakar CC
I can't see anything useful here. Closing the report, since the deprecation seems to have been handled.
