ENDSECTION{"name"} -- marks the end of a named section within a topic

  • Syntax: %ENDSECTION{"name"}%

STARTINCLUDE -- start position of topic text if included

STARTSECTION -- marks the start of a section within a topic

  • Section boundaries are defined with %STARTSECTION{}% and %ENDSECTION{}%.
  • Sections may be given a name to help identify them, and/or a type, which changes how they are used.
    • type="section" - the default, used for a generic section, such as a named section used by INCLUDE.
    • type="include" - like %STARTINCLUDE% ... %STOPINCLUDE% except that you can have as many include blocks as you want (%STARTINCLUDE% is restricted to only one).
    • type="templateonly" - start position of text to be removed when a template topic is used. Use this to embed text that you do not want expanded when a new topic based on the template topic is created. TWikiTemplates has more.
    • type="expandvariables" - start position where TWikiVariables get expanded when a new topic is created. As documented in TWikiTemplates#VariableExpansion, only certain variables get expanded when a new topic based on the template topic is created. All variables get expanded within a "expandvariables" section.
  • Syntax: %STARTSECTION{"name"}% ................... %ENDSECTION{"name"}%
  • Syntax: %STARTSECTION{type="include"}% ........... %ENDSECTION{type="include"}%
  • Syntax: %STARTSECTION{type="templateonly"}% ...... %ENDSECTION{type="templateonly"}%
  • Syntax: %STARTSECTION{type="expandvariables"}% ... %ENDSECTION{type="expandvariables"}%
  • Supported parameters:
    Parameter: Description: Default
    "name" Name of the section. Must be unique inside a topic. Generated name
    type="..." Type of the section; type "section", "include", "templateonly", or "expandvariables" "section"
    disablefixlinks="on" Only for named sections: Bypass fixing WikiWord links if section is included from a topic in another web. Fixing links in included text such as from SomeLink to Thisweb.SomeLink is usually desirable so that links in included text still point to the same target. fix links
  • ALERT! Note: If a section is not given a name, it will be assigned one. Unnamed sections are assigned names starting with _SECTION0 for the first unnamed section in the topic, _SECTION1 for the second, etc..
  • ALERT! Note: You can define nested sections. Do not overlap sections. Use named sections to make sure that the correct START and ENDs are matched. Section markers are not displayed when a topic is viewed.

WORKFLOW*{} -- manage workflows

  • Associate a "state" with a topic and then control the work flow that the topic progresses through as content is added. The WorkflowPlugin expands the following variables:
  • Controlling topics in the workflow:
    • %WORKATTACHTOPIC% - Expands to a link that lets you attach to the topic (if the user is not able to modify the topic, either in the workflow sense or according to the standard access controls, the link will be struck out).
    • %WORKEDITTOPIC% - Expands to a link that lets you edit the topic (if the user is not able to modify the topic, either in the workflow sense or according to the standard access controls, the link will be struck out).
    • %WORKFLOWFORK{...}% - Expands to a button that will create a copy of the current topic (see below for more details)
    • %WORKFLOWTRANSITION% - Expands to either (a) a pull-down menu if the user can perform more than one transition, (b) a button if the current user can only perform one transition, or (c) empty space if the current user is not allowed to perform any action. You can change the format of the button using a CSS class.
  • Querying the workflow:
    • %WORKFLOWHISTORY% - Expands to the history of state transitions the topic has undergone. The format of the history is dictated by the WORKFLOWHISTORYFORMAT (described below).
    • %WORKFLOWLASTREV_State% - Expands to the version number when the document was last in the state State.
    • %WORKFLOWLASTTIME_State% - Expands to the timestamp when the document was last in the State last state. For example, %WORKFLOWLASTTIME_APPROVED% would be replaced by the timestamp when the document was last in the APPROVED state.
    • %WORKFLOWLASTVERSION_State% - Expands to a link to the version of the document when it was last in the state State.
    • %WORKFLOWSTATE% - Expands to the current state of the document. It can also be given a topic parameter (default), in which case the state of that topic is returned.
    • %WORKFLOWSTATEMESSAGE% - Expands to the corresponding message in the state table.
