How can I create a simple TWiki Form based application?


  1. Create a TWiki Form and define fields (see TWikiForms for details)
  2. Add the form in the list of Web Forms. Set the variable WEBFORMS in WebPreferences
  3. Create a Template Topic
  4. In edit mode add the TWiki Form you defined to the Template Topic using the "Add Form" button
  5. Create a HTML Form with necessary fields
  6. Define SEARCH function for listing items (see VarSEARCH for details)

The following is the code source of TWikiFAQ:

<form action="%SCRIPTURLPATH{edit}%/%WEB%/">
New FAQ topic: &nbsp; (Use a name in TWiki.WikiNotation) <br />
<input type="text" name="topic" size="32" />&nbsp;<input type="submit" class="twikiSubmit" value="Create Topic" />
<input type="hidden" name="onlywikiname" value="on" />
<input type="hidden" name="templatetopic" value="TWikiFaqTemplate" />
<input type="hidden" name="topicparent" value="%TOPIC%" />
<br />

And the SEARCH function:

%SEARCH{ "Back to\:__ TWikiFAQ" casesensitive="on" type="regex" nosearch="on" nototal="on"}%
