ANNUNCIO: L'aggiornamento dei pacchetti ISI produce importanti cambiamenti, leggete questa nota


This plugin adds the ability to tell the TWiki renderer to render a portion of a page as if it were a page all to itself.

Syntax Rules

There are two ways to use this plugin.

Syntax 1:

<render>Wiki Stuff</render>
This will render Wiki Stuff as if it were its own page, and render the rest of the page as if it were a single word. So a <render> block is valid in a table cell, or in any other context, even if you normally could not put other wiki markup in that location.

Syntax 2:

This is a macro definition.
   * This is a list inside the macro.
   * For demonstration purposes.
| This is a macro usage: <br /> ~macro |
This is a macro usage:
This is a macro definition.

  • This is a list inside the macro.
  • For demonstration purposes.

RecursiveRenderPlugin Global Settings

Plugin settings are stored as preferences variables. To reference a plugin setting write %<plugin>_<setting>%, for example, %RECURSIVERENDERPLUGIN_SHORTDESCRIPTION%

  • One line description, shown in the TextFormattingRules topic:
    • Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = This plugin adds <render> tags and ~macros.

  • Debug plugin: (See output in data/debug.txt)
    • Set DEBUG = 0
