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.

To work with entire TWiki webs, you need direct access to the installation files on the host server. Connecting by Telnet or FTP is the usual approach. Before making changes to a web, you can move individual topics through your browser (see ModifyTopics). No similar web controls are available through the browser interface.

How to Rename or Delete a Web

Changed:

  • It is advisable not to rename the TWiki.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 TWiki 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 TWiki.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 TWiki 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.
