Hy, I have installed WebPermissions and tried to enable Topic ACL by adding Set SKIN = webpermissions, pattern in my webpreferences. But afterwards when going to more topic actions I've got a white page !! Any Idea ?

Thanks, regards, eric

Sorry, I have no idea what you are talking about. Are you trying to install WebPermissionsPlugin? If you need installation assistance, use the Support web on TWiki.org, or ask on IRC.

No action.


Hi Crawford, Well my issue is quite simple, If I try to use Webpermissions with the upcoming twiki 4.2 , and enable Topic ACL, when I try to access "more topic action" I get an empty page because the templates provided by the plugin do not work with the change made in the template system in 4.2. Here are the fix I found:

  • In the the oopsmore.webpermissions.tmpl I have now:


instead of:



  • In the oopsmoretopicacls.tmpl I made some cosmetic changes so that it looks like the default one. So I have now:
---+++ %MAKETEXT{"Edit topic ACLs"}%
   * %MAKETEXT{"<a href='[_1]' rel='nofollow'>Edit ACLs</a> for this topic" args="%SCRIPTURLPATH{"oops"}%/%WEB%/%TOPIC%?template=topicacls"}%%TMPL:END%

instead of:

---+++++ %ICON{"edittopic"}% *%MAKETEXT{"Edit topic ACLs"}%*
   * %MAKETEXT{"<a href='[_1]' rel='nofollow'>Edit ACLs</a> for this topic" args="%SCRIPTURLPATH{"oops"}%/%WEB%/%TOPIC%?template=topicacls"}%%TMPL:END%

Hope this will help you figure out what I mean ;-). Regards, Eric

I think Kenneth maintains a list of plugins with broken templates in 4.2 somewhere, the list should be updated once this bug is fixed.

Move the summary to "Broken templates for Edit topic ACL in 4.2".

-- TWiki:Main.EricCharikane - 30 Nov 2007

I made a list of plugins with templates that needed to be checked because some of them had been found to be broken. Depending on what the templates in the plugins do many may very well be working.

The two I had reported as broken were fixed thanks to Arthur.

The symptom of this bug report sounds a lot like the ones that were fixed (the blank pages). So it is probably a similar cure that is needed. If this is the case then it is a rather large rewrite of the template that is required.

Kenneth, I'm not sure about what you mean (my english) but fix suggested above works very fine for me. Eric.

-- TWiki:Main.EricCharikane - 30 Nov 2007

Ah, OK, you lost me because I didn't add those templates. It's WebPermissionsPlugin all right. Your template changes make sense to me. But does this break the templates for 4.1 and earlier?


OK, added Eric's changes. Thanks, Eric!
