I had created this variable:

  Set AdminOnly = %IF{"'%USERNAME%' ingroup 'TWikiAdminGroup'" then="style='display: block;'" else="style='display: none;'"}%

Which I used as

<div %AdminOnly%>

If the topic is ever edited (and saved) with the WYSIWYG editor, the div is broken and rewritten as

%AdminOnly% class='TMLhtml' >

I have now built the <div... into the variable, but the editor shouldn't eat my code.

Discussed at TWiki:Codev/KampalaReleaseMeeting2017x05x04:

  • Fixing that possibly opens a can of worms
  • Workaround: Embed in <sticky> tags
