Managing Groups

Groups are defined by group topics in the Main web, like the TWikiAdminGroup. To start a new group:

Changed:
<
<
  1. Create a new topic with A name that ends in Group, SomeGroup
>
>
  1. Create a new topic with A name that ends in Group, SomeGroup
 
  1. Define two variables:
    • Set GROUP = < list of users and groups >
    • Set ALLOWTOPICCHANGE = < list of users and groups >
Changed:
<
<
    • GROUP is a comma-separated list of users and of other groups:
          * Set GROUP = Main.SomeUser, Main.OtherUser, Main.SomeOtherGroup
>
>
  • GROUP is a comma-separated list of users and of other groups:
        Set GROUP = Main.SomeUser, Main.OtherUser, Main.SomeOtherGroup
 
Changed:
<
<
    • ALLOWTOPICCHANGE defines who is allowed to change the group topic; it is a comma delimited list of users and groups. You typically want to restrict that to the members of the group itself, so it should contain the name of the topic,
          * Set ALLOWTOPICCHANGE = Main.TWikiAdminGroup
      for the TWikiAdminGroup topic. (This prevents users not in the group from editing the topic and from gaining unauthorized membership to the group.)
