Settings for WysiwygPlugin that are common to most editor integrations

The global TWiki Variable WYSIWYG_EXCLUDE can be set to make the plugin sensitive to what is in a topic, before allowing it to be edited. You can set it up to veto an edit if the topic contains:

  • html - HTML tags (e.g. <div>, not including <br>), or
  • variables - simple variables (e.g. %VAR%) or
  • calls - TWiki variables with parameters e.g. %VARIABLE{...}%
  • pre blocks (<pre>)
  • HTML comments (<!-- ... -->)
If the plugin detects an excluded construct in the topic, it will refuse to allow the edit and will redirect to the default editor.

If you excluded calls in WYSIWYG_EXCLUDE, you can still define a subset of TWiki variables that do not block edits. this is done in the global TWiki variable WYSIWYG_EDITABLE_CALLS, which should be a list of TWiki variable names separated by vertical bars, with no spaces, e.g: * Set WYSIWYG_EDITABLE_CALLS = COMMENT|CALENDAR|INCLUDE

You should set WYSIWYG_EXCLUDE and WYSIWYG_EDITABLE_CALLS in TWikiPreferences, or in WebPreferences for each web.

You can define the global variable WYSIWYGPLUGIN_STICKYBITS to stop the plugin from ever trying to convert specific HTML tags into HTML when certain specific attributes are present on the tag. This is most useful when you have styling or alignment information in tags that must be preserved.

This variable is used to tell the translator which attributes, when present on a tag, make it "stick" i.e. block conversion. For example, setting it to table=background,lang;tr=valign will stop the translator from trying to handle any table tag that has background or lang attributes, and any tr tag that has a valign attribute.

You can use perl regular expressions to match tag and attribute names, so .*=id,on.* will ensure that any tag with an on* event handler is kept as HTML.

The default setting for this variable is:

    .*=id,lang,title,dir,on.*;
    A=accesskey,coords,shape,target;
    BDO=dir;
    BR=clear;
    COL=char,charoff,span,valign,width;
    COLGROUP=align,char,charoff,span,valign,width;
    DIR=compact;
    DIV=align;
    DL=compact;
    FONT=size,face;
    H\d=align;
    HR=align,noshade,size,width;
    LEGEND=accesskey,align;
    LI=type,value;
    OL=compact,start,type;
    P=align;
    PARAM=name,type,value,valuetype;
    PRE=width;
    Q=cite;
    TABLE=align,bgcolor,border,cellpadding,cellspacing,frame,rules,summary,width;
    TBODY=align,char,charoff,valign;
    TD=abbr,align,axis,bgcolor,char,charoff,colspan,headers,height,nowrap,rowspan,scope,valign,width;
    TFOOT=align,char,charoff,valign;
    TH=abbr,align,axis,bgcolor,char,charoff,colspan,height,nowrap,rowspan,scope,valign,width,headers;
    THEAD=align,char,charoff,valign;
    TR=bgcolor,char,charoff,valign;
    UL=compact,type

If you edit using the plain-text editor, you can use the <sticky>..</sticky> tags to delimit HTML (or TML) that you do not want to be WYSIWYG edited.
