Magnet Web Preferences

The following settings are web preferences of the Magnet web. These preferences overwrite the site-level preferences in DefaultPreferences, and can be overwritten by user preferences (your personal topic, eg: WikiGuest in the Main web).


  • Web specific background color: (Pick a lighter one of the StandardColors)
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #990033

  • List this web in the SiteMap:
    • If yes, set SITEMAPLIST to on, do not set NOSEARCHALL, and add the "what" and "use to..." description for the site map. Make sure to list only links that include the name of the web, e.g. Magnet.Topic links.
    • Set SITEMAPLIST = on
    • Set SITEMAPWHAT = PANDA Magnets
    • Set SITEMAPUSETO = ...collaborate on the PANDA Solenoid and Dipole Magnets

  • Exclude web from a web="all" search: (Set to on for hidden webs)

  • Prevent automatic linking of WikiWords and acronyms (if set to on); link WikiWords (if empty); can be overwritten by web preferences:
    • Set NOAUTOLINK =
    • Note: Use the [[...][...]] syntax to link topics in case you disabled WikiWord linking. The <noautolink> ... </noautolink> syntax can be used to prevents links within a block of text.

  • Users or groups who are not / are allowed to view / change / rename topics in the Magnet web: (See AccessControl)

  • Web preferences that are not allowed to be overridden by user preferences:

  • A preference is defined as:
    6 spaces * Set NAME = value
  • Preferences are used as System.Macros by enclosing the name in percent signs. Example:
    • When you write variable %WEBBGCOLOR% , it gets expanded to #990033 .
  • The sequential order of the preference settings is significant. Define preferences that use other preferences first, i.e. set WEBCOPYRIGHT before WIKIWEBMASTER since %WEBCOPYRIGHT% uses the %WIKIWEBMASTER% variable.
  • You can introduce new preferences variables and use them in your topics and templates. There is no need to change the PANDA Wiki engine (Perl scripts).

Related Topics:
  • DefaultPreferences has site-level preferences.
  • WikiUsers has a list of user topics. User topics can have optional user preferences.
  • System.Macros has a list of common %VARIABLES%.
  • AccessControl explains how to restrict access by users or groups.
