The rename section is working now, but I ran into a small UI problem. On TagMeManage I've put the rename section below the Create New Tag section just below the New Tag form is a list of existing tags. But when I rename a tag, the list of tags is displayed before the tag is renamed, so the list is outdated immediately.

-- TWiki:Main/ArthurClemens - 29 Mar 2007

Solution: create a tab interface for the 'manage' topics Create, Rename and Delete, each on its own page.

-- TWiki:Main/ArthurClemens - 29 Mar 2007

My Cairo TWiki gave an internal server error: Undefined subroutine &TWiki::Func::addToHEAD called at /path/to/twiki/lib/TWiki/Plugins/TagMePlugin.pm line 137.

We need to decide if we want to drop Cairo compatibility or not.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 30 Mar 2007

Ugly. Is there no Cairo way to add css link to head?

Otherwise we might write the css in the topic itself if the version is Cairo.

  • Remarkable that TWiki does not have a standard way to check the release version! I see code like if( $TWiki::Plugins::VERSION >= 1.1 ) and if ($TWiki::Plugins::VERSION eq 1.025) and if( defined $TWiki::cfg{DataDir} )

Regarding maintaining compatibility it probably depends on how many Cairo installations use the plugin.

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 31 Mar 2007

Dare I say it, but 12 month is a long enough time to upgrade to TWiki 4. So I think not too much harm is done if this plugin required TWiki 4.0 and up.

The $TWiki::Plugins::VERSION is the right way to check for TWiki version.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 02 Apr 2007

I have created the tab interface for Create, Rename and Delete.

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 02 Apr 2007

To Do: Add (optional) access control for Rename and Delete. Possibly let users rename and delete their own tags only, and admins all tags?

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 09 Apr 2007

Suggestion: Add a group name (as a plugin setting) that can rename/delete tags. If empty, anyone has access.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 09 Apr 2007

ALLOWTAGCHANGE = SomeGroup, SomeOtherGroup



  • ALLOWTAGCHANGE set to empty let anyone change tags, unless ALLOWUSERCHANGEMYTAGONLY is set to 1
  • If ALLOWUSERCHANGEMYTAGONLY set to 1, users not in ALLOWTAGCHANGE groups will only see their own tags in Rename and Delete. The exact spec has to be written out still.

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 09 Apr 2007

I have implemented tag change permissions with ALLOW_TAG_CHANGE. The idea of users being allowed to change their own tags has to wait a little.
