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

It contains the following:

  • Write protect your home page: (set it to your %TWIKIWEB%.WikiName)

This is wrong in two ways; first, it sort of suggests you can just remove the comment marker to enable this setting and it will work; but of course setting it to %WIKIUSERNAME% achieves nothing (I have seen several people do this). Second, it advises you to use %TWIKIWEB%.WikiName when it should of course be %USERSWEB%.WikiName.

Setting to Urgent because this was recently re-added, and should be fixed before release.


1. This is the template, instantiated user homepages will have the %WIKIUSERNAME% resolved.

2. %TWIKIWEB%.WikiName is a link to a topic in the TWiki web. The %TWIKIWEB% prefix is needed since the user homepages are in the Main web.
