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

It appears that the PublishContrib publishes as the user doing the publish process. This means that tricks such as making a cover for TWikiGuest in http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/TWiki04/PatternSkinCustomization don't work if you are publishing as a non-authenticated user.

Would providing an alternate user (usable only by TWikiAdminGroup) be appropriate?


Update: I got this to work by having:

      * Set PUBLISHSKIN = anon,pattern
      * Set COVER = anon
      * Set WIKINAME = TWikiGuest
      * Set WIKIUSERNAME = guest 

Where anon was defined in twiki/templates/view.anon.tmpl as:


TWiki scripts run as a user; it's a basic part of access controls. Glad you found a workaround!
