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

The Set FINALPREFERENCES are missing in the TWiki.TWikiPreferences.

This probably means, among other things, that anyone can change the webmaster, and that a guest can create a new web.

Cairo had this setting: PREVIEWBGIMAGE, WIKITOOLNAME, WIKIWEBMASTER, SMTPMAILHOST, SMTPSENDERHOST, ALLOWWEBMANAGE, READTOPICPREFS, TOPICOVERRIDESUSER

Dakar has some hidden settings with FINALPREFERENCES marked as "Test code, used in TWiki testing"

  • removed in SVN:7411 -- WN

-- PTh

most, although not all, of these settings seem to be in Main.TWikiPreferences. specifically,

  • ATTACHFILESIZELIMIT was added to Main.TWikiPreferences
  • PREVIEWBGIMAGE was dropped. i don't know if this was a conscious decision or not, but it sounds like a reasonable decision to me.
  • READTOPICPREFS and TOPICOVERRIDESUSER aren't in Main.TWikiPreferences (dunno why)

-- WN


If I remember right there was some discussion on wanting to be able to override TWikiPreferences with local variations in a way that one could install the system over the existing system. There were some games played with TWikiPreferences (in Main) vs. TWikiPreferences (in TWiki). -- TW
I believe that READTOPICPREFS and TOPICOVERRIDEUSER have been removed in favor of local preferences? --

TW

That makes sense now, the FINALPREFERENCES are listed in Main.TWikiPreferences.
