TWiki Administration

The current implementation of TWiki 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. TWiki requires administrative stuff like that to be done on the shell level, so please ask your TWiki 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 TWiki 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 TWiki 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.
