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

it just points to %MAINWEB%.TWikiGuest instead of your actual personal topic

people should not be pointed to Main.TWikiGuest and encouraged to edit it!

These preferences overwrite the __site-level preferences__ in %TWIKIWEB%.%WIKIPREFSTOPIC%, and can be overwritten by __user preferences__ (your personal topic, eg: %MAINWEB%.TWikiGuest in the [[%MAINWEB%.%HOMETOPIC%][%MAINWEB%]] web).

instead of %MAINWEB%.TWikiGuest, wouldn´t it be better written as %WIKIUSERNAME% ?

or even better using %IF{"context authenticated" ...}% ?


I took webpreferences off the left bar because it is an administrator-oriented topic not a user-oriented one.

"Preferences" in their current form are not relevant to end users.

Preferences from an end-user point of view are what topics they are subscribed to, and the settings that we currently keep on home page.


This appears to be closed.
