Create a new web by filling out this form. Note: It is not recommended to create a new web for each little project. You can organize content within a web using TWikiForms and FormattedSearch. Cross-linking topics and search is easier if there are only a few larger webs.
Name of new web: Enter a short name of up to 10 characters. The name must start with one or more upper case letters, followed by optional lower case letters or numbers; it cannot be a WikiWord
Based on web: Select a template web (starting with an underscore) or an existing web as a template for the new web. All topics are copied over from a template web; only topics that start with Web... (like "Home", "WebNotify") are copied from other webs

Renaming or deleting a web requires direct access to the installation files on the host server. There are currently no browser-based equivalents of the Rename/move/delete topic tools for working with webs.

NOTE: If you plan to rename the Galeon.Main web, remember that TWiki stores user and group topics in %MAINWEB%, default named Main. That means, every WikiName signature - Main.SomeUserName - points to it and would need updating (unless the variable, %MAINWEB%.SomeUserName, is used throughout).
  1. Prepare your site: Search each web for links to the target web, searching topic text for Oldwebname., including the dot so you'll find references like Oldwebname.SomeTopic.
    • Make changes as required, to Newwebname.SomeTopic or better yet, to %MAINWEB%.SomeTopic.

The current implementation of Galeon is designed to never forget. So you can't delete a topic, however you can move or rename a topic and the original information is saved in topic meta data. If you want an even stronger memory, you can disable renaming on some or all topics; see TWikiAccessControl.

  • It is advisable not to rename the Galeon.Main web.
  • Be aware that other webs might link to the web you want to rename / delete. Search each web for links to this web, i.e. search all webs for Obsolete. (include the period, this is to find topics like Obsolete.SomeTopic ). Take measures if necessary.
  • Edit the TWikiPreferences topic and rename / delete the web from the WIKIWEBLIST variable.
  • Edit the TWikiWebsTable topic and rename / delete the web from the table.
  • Telnet to the Galeon installation.
  • cd to twiki/data and rename / delete the web directory.
  • cd to twiki/templates and rename / delete the web directory if present.
  • cd to twiki/pub and rename / delete the web directory if present.

  • NOTE: Think twice if you intend to rename the Galeon.Main web, since many files point to it. If you do rename it, you'll also have to change all occurrences of Main to the new web name - this includes, for example, the user signatures across your entire TWiki site. (On the other hand, if the variable %MAINWEB% is used throughout, you have no problem.)
  1. Prepare your site: Other webs may link to the web you want to rename or delete. Search each web for links to the target web: search all webs for Abouttochange. - include the period to find topics like Abouttochange.SomeTopic. Make changes as required.
  2. Edit the TWikiPreferences topic: Rename or delete the web from the WIKIWEBLIST variable.
  3. Edit the TWikiWebsTable topic: Rename or delete the web from the table.
  4. Connect to the Galeon server: Login via Telnet or FTP.
  5. Edit the data files: Go to twiki/data and rename or delete the web directory.
  6. Edit the template files: Go to twiki/templates and rename or delete the web directory if present.
  7. Edit the public files: Go to twiki/pub and rename or delete the web directory if present.

TWiki Administration

Changed:

The current implementation of Galeon is designed to never forget, that means all topic changes are under revision control and you can't delete or rename topics.

Nevertheless there are cases where you wish to delete topics. Galeon requires administrative stuff like that to be done on the shell level, so please ask your Galeon administrator to do that for you. A future version will allow administrators to do that on the browser level.

How to Rename or Delete a Topic

  • Go to the topic you want to rename / delete.
  • Find out the back-links to this page from Ref-By . Modify other topics if needed.
  • Telnet to the Galeon installation.
  • cd to twiki/data and then to the web where the topic is located. Rename / delete the topic ( name.txt ) and repository file ( name.txt,v ). Hint: Instead of deleting a topic you could create a Trash web and move topics/repositories to this web. (A future version of TWiki might have a Trash web.)
  • Edit the .changes file and rename / delete all occurrences of the topic. Note: There might be several lines of the topic.
  • cd to twiki/pub and then to the web where the topic is located. Rename / delete the topic attachment directory if present.

The current implementation of Galeon is designed to never forget. So you can't delete a topic, however you can move or rename a topic and the original information is saved in topic meta data. If you want an even stronger memory, you can disable renaming on some or all topics; see TWikiAccessControl.
