TWiki Groups

Use these groups to define fine grained access control in TWiki:

Group Members
TWikiBaseGroup TWikiAdminUser, TWikiGuest, UnknownUser, TWikiContributor, TWikiRegistrationAgent
AllAuthUsersGroup All authenticated users.
AllUsersGroup All users including unauthenticated users.
NobodyGroup  
TWikiAdminGroup TWikiAdminUser

New Group:  
Warning, important A group topic name must be a WikiWord and must end in ...Group.
Tip, idea New topics are based on TWikiGroupTemplate

IMPORTANT NOTE: Think twice before restricting write access to a web or a topic, because an open system where everybody can contribute is the essence of WikiCulture. Experience shows that unrestricted write access works very well because:

  • There is enough peer pressure to post only appropriate content.
  • Content does not get lost because topics are under revision control.
  • A topic can be rolled back to a previous version.
