Modernise references to TWIKIWEB and MAINWEB

These have long been recognised as better written SYSTEMWEB and USERSWEB

-- TWiki:Main/CrawfordCurrie - 24 Aug 2007

This change has been running, with passing tests, on my site for over a month now.


Reopened issue in order to replace TWIKIWEB and MAINWEB with SYSTEMWEB and USERSWEB also within templates

-- TWiki:Main.AndreUlrich - 04 Sep 2007

Reopened again. Templates where just the tip of the iceberg.

-- TWiki:Main.AndreUlrich - 05 Sep 2007

All references within the official distribution have updated. Will look at the remaining >2200 references within plugins later on. I think changing them is no problem for the contributers as it is easily mergeable for them.

-- TWiki:Main.AndreUlrich - 07 Sep 2007

How about compatibility with older TWiki installations? I cannot package plugins and say: Sorry you must have the newest TWiki version.

-- TWiki:Main.DanielRohde - 10 Sep 2007

... I will revert all SVN changes related to this item for all my plugins (Checklist[Table]Plugin, TimeTablePlugin, RackPlannerPlugin, HolidaylistPlugin) to get it work with my TWiki installation

-- TWiki:Main.DanielRohde - 10 Sep 2007

You´re right, new TWiki releases are compatible to "old style" plugins but not the old Versions with the "new style". Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hopefully I didn´t step on too much toes with the change. Maybe a good reason to stay up to date.

Just finishing updating the plugins.

-- TWiki:Main.AndreUlrich - 12 Sep 2007

I am unsure if it is a good idea to close this item until at solution is found for installs without the SYSTEMWEB variables.

- Even if it is just adding documentation for each the affected plugins that the variables need to be available/defined in the installation.

-- TWiki:Main.SteffenPoulsen - 14 Sep 2007

I added a comment to the default install help for plugins


There is now a de-modernise bug that is being actioned.
