|''Author:''|UdoBorkowski|
When you click on the [[download|Download]] button, the website will detect your browser and operating system, and trigger a download for either an empty ~TiddlyWiki file or, if you're running [[Safari]] or [[Opera]], a zip file which also includes the TiddlySaver file. This is version <<version>> of ~TiddlyWiki.

*[[An empty TiddlyWiki file|http://www.tiddlywiki.com/empty.html]]
*[[A zip file containing an empty TiddlyWiki file plus a TiddlySaver file|http://www.tiddlywiki.com/empty.zip]]
*[[A copy of this website (TiddlyWiki.com) minus images|#]]
*[[The TiddlySaver.jar file on its own|http://www.tiddlywiki.com/TiddlySaver.jar]]
Finally, these links may be useful:
*A list of supported [[Browsers]]
*Archive of older versions of TiddlyWiki at http://tiddlywiki.com/archive/

This tiddler shows some more complex effects that can be obtained with cunning use of CSS. Not all of these will work properly on all browsers because of differences in CSS implementation, but they should fail gracefully.

You can have special formatting for a specific, named tiddler like this:
{{{
#tiddlerHelloThere .title {
background-color: #99aaee;
}
}}}

Or for the first displayed tiddler:
{{{
div.tiddler:first-child .title {
font-size: 28pt;
}
}}}

Or just for the first line of every tiddler:
{{{
.viewer:first-line {
background-color: #999999;
}
}}}

Or just for the first letter of every tiddler:
{{{
.viewer:first-letter {
float: left;
font-size: 28pt;
font-weight: bold;
}
}}}

Or just for tiddlers tagged with a particular tag (note that this won't work for tags that contain spaces):
{{{
div[tags~="welcome"].tiddler .viewer {
background-color: #ffccaa;
}

div[tags~="features"].tiddler .viewer {
background-color: #88aaff;
}
}}}
If you check this box in the InterfaceOptions, TiddlyWiki will automatically SaveChanges every time you edit a tiddler. In that way there's a lot less chance of you losing any information.

However, if you also have the SaveBackups checkbox ticked, you'll end up with a lot of archived files. You may prefer to select either one or the other.
One of the great strengths of TiddlyWiki is the way that its interface can be customised by editting various shadow tiddlers. However, a problem that has consistently emerged is the difficulty of reconciling the needs of authors, who need access to the full array of TiddlyWiki features, and the needs of ordinary readers, who generally benefit from seeing a restricted set of functionality more suited to their needs.

The new backstage area in release 2.2 offers a solution to this conundrum by providing a consistent way of accessing authoring functionality that is independent of the interface customisations (so, even if you blast away the contents of your PageTemplate, you can still access the backstage area).

The backstage area is only available when a TiddlyWiki is edittable - typically meaning that it's been opened off of a {{{file://}}} URL. It appears as an unobtrusive link in the topright corner of the page. Clicking it reveals the backstage toolbar consisting of commands like {{{saveChanges}}} and drop-down tasks like ImportTiddlers, SyncMacro, PluginManager and Tweak (which provides access to the new [[options macro]]).

CamelCase (camel case or camel-case)—also known as medial capitals—is the practice of writing compound words or phrases in which the elements are joined without spaces.
The Mozilla-based [[Camino browser|http://www.caminobrowser.org/]] on Macintosh OS X works well with TiddlyWiki, including the ability to SaveChanges.
Abandons any pending edits to the current tiddler, and switches it the default view. It is used with the ToolbarMacro like this:
{{{
<<toolbar cancelTiddler>>
}}}
When you upload a TiddlyWiki to a web server, if doesn't load properly, it may be a CharacterEncoding issue.

TiddlyWiki uses Unicode ~UTF-8 encoding and won't load properly if your host is serving it as ~ISO-8859-1. You should be able to check this by loading another page on the server in FireFox and selecting 'Page Info' on the 'Tools' menu.

If this is the case, it should be reasonably easy to sort out. We recommend that you contact your server host and ask them to serve it in ~UTF-8 mode. If you are more technically hands-on, you may be able to [[solve the issue yourself|http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-htaccess-charset]].
~TiddlyWiki works well in Google Chrome and Chromium using [[TiddlySaver]].
However, due to Chrome's [[lack of Java support on Mac OS and Linux|http://groups.google.com/group/tiddlywiki/browse_thread/thread/1f0e299198573e89]], it currently cannot save on those platforms.
Closes all other open tiddlers, except for any that are being editted. It is used with the ToolbarMacro like this:
{{{
<<toolbar closeOthers>>
}}}
Closes the current tiddler, regardless of whether it is being editted. It is used with the ToolbarMacro like this:

* Testing and [[reporting bugs|http://trac.tiddlywiki.org/wiki/ReportingBugs]] against the core code. Clear, easily reproducible bug reports are incredibly useful and really help the team improve the quality of ~TiddlyWiki
* [[Contributing code|http://trac.tiddlywiki.org/wiki/ContributingCode]]
* [[Making translations|http://trac.tiddlywiki.org/wiki/Translations]]
* Documentation needs planning, writing and editing, particularly user guide information at http://www.tiddlywiki.org
If you would like to make a financial contribution, ~TiddlyWiki is owned by the not-for-profit [[UnaMesa Foundation|http://www.unamesa.org/]] which welcomes donations.
Sometimes it's necessary to include custom HTML markup in the {{{<head>}}} of a TiddlyWiki file - typically for compatibility with ad serving software, external libraries, or for custom meta tags. The CustomMarkup operation defines four shadow tiddlers whose contents are spliced into the saved HTML file. (If you do a view/source you'll see the markers referred to below).
|!Title |!Location |!Marker |
|MarkupPreBody |Start of the {{{<body>}}} section |{{{<!--PRE-BODY-START-->}}} |
|MarkupPostBody |End of the {{{<body>}}} section |{{{<!--POST-BODY-START-->}}} |
MarkupPreHead is the only one with shadow content: a link to the default location of the RSS feed.
You can skin TiddlyWiki with a special StyleSheet tiddler containing your own CSS style sheet declarations. Unlike hacking the HTML directly, the StyleSheet tiddler withstands upgrading to a new version of the TiddlyWiki code (see HowToUpgrade). You can also use the NestedStyleSheets feature to structure your CSS declarations.

The ExampleStyleSheet shows some of the basic options you can control (see AnotherExampleStyleSheet for more complex examples). SaveChanges and then click refresh in your browser to see StyleSheet changes. Any errors in your CSS syntax will be caught and displayed, but they shouldn't stop TiddlyWiki from working.

You can customise the appearance and behaviour of TiddlyWiki to almost any degree you want:
* Install [[Plugins]] to extend the core functionality
* Use the ColorPalette to change the basic colour scheme
* Use built in [[Formatting|Basic Formatting]] techniques
* Create a CustomStyleSheet for finer grained control over the appearance
* Customise the PageTemplate, ViewTemplate or EditTemplate to change the composition of the page and the layout of individual tiddlers
* Further SpecialTiddlers
* Use off-the-shelf themes from [[TiddlyThemes|http://tiddlythemes.com/]]
* Visit the [[Configuration]] summary to see all the special configuration tiddlers
* Use TiddlyBookmarklets for low level hacking of TiddlyWiki documents

Several [[Macros|MacrosContent]] including the [[Today Macro|today macro]] take a [[Date Format String|Date Formats]] as an optional argument. This string can be a combination of ordinary text, with some special characters that get substituted by parts of the date:
* {{{DDD}}} - day of week in full (eg, "Monday")
* {{{ddd}}} - short day of week (eg, "Mon")
* {{{DD}}} - day of month
* {{{DDth}}} - adds a suffix
* {{{WW}}} - ~ISO-8601 week number of year
* {{{MMM}}} - month in full (eg, "July")
* {{{mmm}}} - short month (eg, "Jul")
* {{{MM}}} - month number
* {{{YYYY}}} - full year
* {{{YY}}} - two digit year
* {{{wYYYY}}} - full year with respect to week number
* {{{wYY}}} two digit year with respect to week number
* {{{hh}}} - hours
* {{{hh12}}} - hours in 12 hour clock
* {{{0hh12}}} - hours in 12 hour clock with leading zero
* {{{mm}}} - minutes
* {{{0mm}}} - minutes with leading zero
* {{{ss}}} - seconds
* {{{0ss}}} - seconds with leading zero
* {{{am}}} or {{{pm}}} - lower case AM/PM indicator
* {{{AM}}} or {{{PM}}} - upper case AM/PM indicator

!!!!Examples
{{{DDth MMM YYYY}}} - 16th February 2011
{{{DDth mmm hh:mm:ss}}} - 16th Feb 2011 11:38:42
HelloThere GettingStarted WhatsNew Raves Examples

This tiddler contains a list of tiddlers that are opened automatically when you load the tiddlywiki.
The default is:
{{{
[[GettingStarted]]
}}}

An example could be:
{{{
[[HelloThere]]
[[Reference]]
[[Features]]
}}}
Note you can also put filters into your DefaultTiddlers tiddler. For instance to open all tiddlers tagged with blog on startup:
{{{
[tag[blog]]
}}}

Deletes the current tiddler. A confirmation dialogue is displayed unless disabled with the ConfirmBeforeDeleting checkbox in AdvancedOptions. It is used with the ToolbarMacro like this:
{{{
<<toolbar deleteTiddler>>

TiddlyWiki developer documentation is being built up at http://tiddlywikidev.tiddlyspace.com/.

Michael Mahemoff has written a very helpful outline of the architecture of ~TiddlyWiki: [[Part 1|http://softwareas.com/tiddlywiki-internals-1-of-3-architectural-concepts]], [[Part 2|http://softwareas.com/tiddlywiki-internals-2-of-3-list-of-javascript-files]] and [[Part 3|http://softwareas.com/tiddlywiki-internals-3-of-3-key-javascript-classes-and-files]].

There are two Google Group discussion forums for discussions about ~TiddlyWiki, whether basic entry level questions or more complex development challenges. They are the best places to ask questions about ~TiddlyWiki, and to connect with other enthusiasts:
* A ~TiddlyWiki group for general discussion, bug reports and announcements at http://groups.google.com/group/TiddlyWiki

The following downloading guidelines have been created to cover the vast majority of browsers and operating systems.

If you are still having trouble downloading ~TiddlyWiki after checking these guidelines, check the [[list of browsers|Browsers]] to make sure your browser and operating system are supported. And you can always [[turn to the community|Help and Support]] for help!


Follow these easy steps to get started. Note that these guidelines are for Firefox v3.0.1 running on Mac OS X 10.5.4.

''If these guidelines aren't appropriate, check the [[other browser-specific guidelines|Downloading]] to find some that are right for you.''
You'll need to choose a name and location for your empty ~TiddlyWiki file - we recommend either your Desktop or Documents folder. Make sure you keep the .html file extension and leave the "Save As: Hypertext" default option as it is.
[img[images/step1mac.jpg]]
Empty ~TiddlyWiki files are very small, and download should be completed quickly. You can now either launch the file from the download pane (shown below, double click on the file name to launch), or open your finder to open the file from there.

Follow these easy steps to get started! Note that these guidelines are for Opera 9.5.1 running on Mac OS X 10.5.4, but will apply to several other configurations (including most other versions of [[Opera]])

''If these guidelines aren't appropriate, check the [[other browser-specific guidelines|Downloading]] to find some that are right for you.''

[img[images/step1macopera.jpg]]
!Step 2 - Check files
Open the zip file, and then check in the resulting folder that you have automatically received two files:
*empty.html (this is your ~TiddlyWiki file)
*~TiddlySaver.jar (this is a java applet, which will make sure everything works in your chosen browser. Note a copy of this file ''must'' be kept in the same folder as any ~TiddlyWiki file you are using)
[img[images/step2macopera.jpg]]
You can download the TiddlySaver file on it's own from [[here|http://www.tiddlywiki.com/TiddlySaver.jar]] if you need it.

Open the empty.html file to get started.
!Step 3 - Trust applet
The ~TiddlySaver.jar applet has been signed by [[UnaMesa|http://www.unamesa.org]], who hold the rights to ~TiddlyWiki on behalf of the community. You can find out more about the applet itself [[here|TiddlySaver]], and you'll need to click on 'Trust' in order for the ~TiddlyWiki to work. If you've accidentally clicked on 'Don't Trust' previously, don't worry - just restart the browser and you should get asked again.

[img[images/step3macopera.jpg]]
!Step 4 - You're done!
Thanks to the applet, you now have the full functionality of ~TiddlyWiki at your disposal. Be sure to check out the guidelines in [[Getting Started|GettingStarted]]!

After [[Download]], check first that you have automatically received a zip file containing two files (the contents of the zip file may have been extracted automatically - if not, open the zip file):
*empty.html (this is your ~TiddlyWiki file)
*~TiddlySaver.jar (this is a java applet, which will make sure everything works in your chosen browser. Note a copy of this file ''must'' be kept in the same folder as any ~TiddlyWiki file you are using)
[img[images/step1macsafari.jpg]]
You can download the ~TiddlySaver.jar file on it's own from [[here|http://www.tiddlywiki.com/TiddlySaver.jar]] if you need it.

Double click the empty.html file to get started.
!Step 2 - Open file
The system will check you're happy to open the ~TiddlyWiki file. Click on 'Open'.

[img[images/step2macsafari.jpg]]
!Step 3 - Trust applet
The ~TiddlySaver.jar applet has been signed by [[UnaMesa|http://www.unamesa.org]], who hold the rights to ~TiddlyWiki on behalf of the community. You can find out more about the applet itself [[here|TiddlySaver]], and you'll need to click on 'Trust' in order for the ~TiddlyWiki to work.

This tiddler contains the markup used to display tiddlers in edit mode. It is designed to make it easy to change the layout/structure of the tiddler in edit mode.
By default it contains the following markup:
{{{
<div class='toolbar'
macro='toolbar [[ToolbarCommands::EditToolbar]] icons:yes'>
</div>
<div class='editor title' macro='edit title'></div>
<div class='tagClear'></div>
</div>
<div class='annotationsBox' macro='annotations'>
<div class='editSpaceSiteIcon'
macro='tiddlerOrigin height:16 width:16 label:no interactive:no'>
</div>
<div class="privacyEdit" macro='setPrivacy label:no interactive:no'></div>
<div class='tagClear'></div>
</div>
<div class='editor' macro='edit text'></div>
<div class='editorFooter'>
<div class='tagTitle'>tags</div>
<div class='editor' macro='edit tags'></div>
<div class='tagAnnotation'>
<span macro='message views.editor.tagPrompt'></span>
<span macro='tagChooser excludeLists'></span>
</div>
</div>
}}}
Switches the current tiddler to the current edit view. It is used with the ToolbarMacro like this:
{{{
<<toolbar editTiddler>>
}}}
~TiddlyWiki is made up of chunks of information called tiddlers. You're reading a tiddler called 'Editing' right now.

When you open an empty ~TiddlyWiki file for the first time, you'll be presented with a tiddler called "~GettingStarted". This contains links to tiddlers to help you define the main attributes of your ~TiddlyWiki; the Title, SubTitle and MainMenu navigation (see [[Configuration]]).

You will notice that each tiddler has a command menu in it's top right corner (''close'', ''edit'', and so on). You can use this to switch the tiddler into edit mode, or if you prefer you can simply double click the tiddler when it is in view mode. When you are finished, click on ''done'', or ''cancel'' to discard your changes.

You can sign your edits with your username, which is currently set to <<option txtUserName>>. You can change it here, or in the right hand sidebar, where it can be found under [[options »|InterfaceOptions]].

There are two ways to make links between tiddlers. If you are linking to a tiddler which already exists, put the tiddler name in double square brackets (Double click here, and you'll see double square brackets around the word [[example]]). You can use this technique to point to (and create) a new tiddler, or alternatively just write the tiddler name by joining words starting with capital letters, LikeThis. When you save the tiddler and click on the link, you can then add content to your new tiddler.

You'll need to know your Flickr person ID, which should replace the value "35468148136%40N01" in the HTML. There's a useful [[Flickr idGettr|http://eightface.com/code/idgettr/]] to help with this.
A new feature for the ThirdVersion of TiddlyWiki is the ability to generate an RssFeed of its content. You can flick it on with a new addition to the InterfaceOptions. If enabled, it automatically saves an RSS 2.0 format file with the last few changed tiddlers in it. It's given the same filename as the TiddlyWiki file but with the ".xml" extension. Like all TiddlyWiki features, it's experimental, and will probably be a bit temperamental in your feedreader until the bugs are ironed out.

Note that you must set the tiddler SiteUrl to be the URL where your TiddlyWiki will be published. (Don't put leading spaces or line breaks before or after the URL).
Once you've successfully [[downloaded|Downloading]] ~TiddlyWiki, you can find out how to:
* [[Setup TiddlyWiki with your browser|Browsers]]
* [[Save changes|SaveChanges]]
* [[Search]] for content
* Use [[tagging|Tags]] to organise your tiddlers
* [[Customise|Customisation]] TiddlyWiki's appearance and behaviour
* Use apps to run TiddlyWiki on a [[MobileDevice|MobileDevices]]
See the full [[Reference Guide|Reference]]
The GettingStarted shadow tiddler contains information about how to start using your TiddlyWiki.
You can change it to include anything you desire.

For example a lot of tiddlywiki authors use it to explain what their wiki is about. This is a particularly useful approach because by default the GettingStarted tiddler is in the [[DefaultTiddlers|DefaultTiddlers shadows]] tiddler, thus opens automatically upon loading of the page.

By default it is also part of the [[MainMenu|MainMenu shadows]] tiddler so is included on the left side of the menu bar above.
Several popular GreaseMonkey scripts can cause some or all features of TiddlyWiki to stop working - the default Linkify script seems to be particularly troublesome. There doesn't seem to be a //solid// way to disable GreaseMonkey from within TiddlyWiki (which is technically entirely understandable but does lead to a fairly grim user experience).
TiddlyWiki makes a great GuerillaWiki in situations where it's not practical to use a traditional wiki.

For instance, in a corporate setting, persuading an over-worked IT department to install you a Wiki server for you isn't always going to be possible overnight. And your PC is locked down so you can't install a conventional Wiki yourself. But, equally, you can't go and use one of the public hosted Wiki services because your Information Security department would not allow all that corporate data to flow into an outside server.

TiddlyWiki slices through those barriers by being usable on virtually all ~PCs.

Welcome to TiddlyWiki, a reusable non-linear personal web notebook.  It's a unique [[wiki|WikiWikiWeb]] that people [[love using|Raves]] to keep ideas and information organised. It was originally created by JeremyRuston and is now a thriving [[open source|OpenSourceLicense]] project with a busy [[Community]] of independent developers.

TiddlyWiki is written in HTML, CSS and JavaScript to run on any reasonably modern [[browser|Browsers]] without needing any ServerSide logic. It allows anyone to create personal SelfContained hypertext documents that can be published to a web server, sent by email, stored in a Dropbox or kept on a USB thumb drive to make a WikiOnAStick. Because it doesn't need to be installed and configured it makes a great GuerillaWiki.

This is revision <<version>> of TiddlyWiki Classic, and is published under an OpenSourceLicense.  Incremental updates will occur every few months, depending upon the complexity of the changes being made.  A comprehensive re-write of TiddlyWiki, called TiddlyWiki5, is now under active development. It is available for testing here: http://five.tiddlywiki.com
TiddlyWiki is an [[OpenSourceLicense|open source]] product, with most help and support being provided by the [[Community]]. The best way to get help with a specific problem is the TiddlyWiki DiscussionForums (it's worth searching the group archives to see if anyone else has already solved the same problem).

There are a number of other useful resources for learning about TiddlyWiki:

* [[TiddlerToddler|http://tiddlertoddler.tiddlyspot.com/]] from Julie Starr
* [[TwHelp|http://twhelp.tiddlyspot.com/]] from Morris Gray


This is an [[advanced option|AdvancedOptions]] that lets you choose whether editting features are shown when a TiddlyWiki file is viewed over {{{http:}}} (as opposed to {{{file:}}}).

To publish a TiddlyWiki with the editting features hidden you'll need to create a tiddler tagged with 'systemConfig' and include in it the line:

{{{
}}}

End users can then override the setting using the AdvancedOptions panel.

Released in September 2004, the [[first version|firstversion.html]] was pretty basic, weighing in at 52KB.

Released in December 2004, the [[second version|secondversion.html]] of TiddlyWiki grew 50% over the FirstVersion to 76KB. It added IncrementalSearch, the ReferencesButton, the PermalinkCommand, PermaView, [[closeAll macro]], smooth scrolling, an improved sidebar, an animation for the CloseTiddlerCommand and a tiny Easter egg in homage for Macintosh OS X. It also introduced a new site design.

After that, there's a nearly complete archive of old versions of TiddlyWiki at:
* http://www.tiddlywiki.com/archive/

Four dashes on a line by themselves are used to introduce a horizontal rule:
{{{

There are several ways that you can have your TiddlyWiki data hosted online, making it easier to access and share your information.

!~TiddlySpot
[<img[http://tiddlyspot.com/_ts/images/banner-logo.png][TiddlySpot|http://tiddlyspot.com]] ~TiddlySpot lets you put TiddlyWiki documents on the Web, and edit them directly in your browser. It doesn't yet offer full support for simultaneous editing by multiple users.

!~DropBox
Many people use [[DropBox|http://dropbox.com]] to synchronise their TiddlyWiki documents to make them available on multiple computers. The ~DropBox iPhone/iPad application also permits read only access to TiddlyWiki documents. See [[A Personal Knowledgebase Solution: Tiddlywiki and Dropbox|http://www.broowaha.com/articles/7671/a-personal-knowledgebase-solution-tiddlywiki-and-dropbox]]

!~TiddlyWeb & ~TiddlySpace
[<img[TiddlySpace|http://tiddlyspace.com/bags/frontpage_public/tiddlers/shinyspace.png][http://tiddlyspace.com]] [[TiddlySpace|http://tiddlyspace.com]] is a full hosted service for TiddlyWiki that allows multiple people to edit the same wiki at the same time. It is particularly focussed on sharing tiddlers.

~TiddlySpace is built on top of [[TiddlyWeb|http://tiddlyweb.com]], a flexible architecture for putting tiddlers on the web.

!TiddlyWiki Server for node.js (TWS)
[[TWS|https://github.com/PoulStaugaard/TWS]] by Poul Staugaard is a simple node.js based serverside for TiddlyWiki.

!~GieWiki
[[GieWiki|http://code.google.com/p/giewiki/]] by Poul Staugaard is a new serverside for TiddlyWiki that focusses on making TiddlyWiki behave like a real wiki, with preview and versioning of tiddlers, any number of pages in any hierachy, an auto-generated sitemap, comments on tiddlers, fine-grained access control, image upload, recent changes etc. You can see a default instance at http://giewiki.appspot.com/.

!ccTiddly
[[ccTiddly|http://tiddlywiki.org/#ccTiddly]] is an older serverside written in PHP to use [[MySQL|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MySQL]] for storage. It is no longer under active development, but remains a popular choice for basic TiddlyWiki hosting needs.

!~TiddlyCouch
[[TiddlyCouch|http://bijl.iriscouch.com/bijl-ctw/_design/tiddlycouch/_list/tiddlywiki/tiddlers]] is an experimental integration of TiddlyWiki with CouchDB.

The core TiddlyWiki code is regularly updated with bug fixes and new features. If you're using an earlier revision of TiddlyWiki, you should consider upgrading to the latest version.

The steps you need to take depend on which version of TiddlyWiki you are upgrading from. From version 2.4.0 onwards, you can upgrade to the latest version using the 'Upgrade' tab in the BackstageArea, as described below. If you're using an earlier version of TiddlyWiki, you'll need to follow [[these instructions|HowToUpgradeOlderTiddlyWikis]] instead.

* Open the BackstageArea by clicking the 'backstage' button at the top right
* Click on the 'Upgrade' tab
* Click on the 'Upgrade' button, and follow the prompts
The steps you need to take depend on which version of TiddlyWiki you are upgrading from. From version 2.4.0 onwards, you can upgrade to the latest version using the 'Upgrade' tab in the BackstageArea, as described in HowToUpgrade. If you're using an earlier version of TiddlyWiki, you'll need to follow these instructions instead:
* Download a fresh, empty version of TiddlyWiki by right-clicking on [[this link|http://www.tiddlywiki.com/empty.html]], selecting 'Save target' or 'Save link' and saving it in a convenient location as (say) "mynewtiddlywiki.html"
* Open the new TiddlyWiki file in your browser
* Choose ''import'' from the BackstageArea at the top of the window (you may need to click the 'backstage' button at the upper right to show the BackstageArea)
* Click the ''browse'' button and select your original TiddlyWiki file (say, "mytiddlywiki.html") from the file browser
* Click the ''open'' button on the import wizard; a list of all of your tiddlers is displayed
* Click on the top-left checkbox to select all the tiddlers in the list
* Scroll down to the bottom of the wizard and ensure that the checkbox labelled //Keep these tiddlers linked to this server...// is ''clear''
* Click the ''import'' button
The most likely cause of the upgrade process not working properly is that one of the [[Plugins]] you're using is not compatible with a change in the new release. If so, you can repeat the process omitting the troublesome plugins.
Entities in HTML documents allow characters to be entered that can't easily be typed on an ordinary keyboard. They take the form of an ampersand (&), an identifying string, and a terminating semi-colon (;). There's a complete reference [[here|http://www.htmlhelp.com/reference/html40/entities/]]; some of the more common and useful ones are shown below.

[[Image Macro]]
To import tiddlers from another ~TiddlyWiki file, or from an external website, follow these instructions.
#If the tiddler is on an external site, first copy the URL of the site which includes the tiddler you'd like to download into your clipboard (eg http://www.tiddlytools.com)
#Click on the 'Backstage' link that you can see at the very top right hand side of the page.
#In the menu, click on 'Import'. You will then see a window that looks like this - and you can follow the guidance from there. Note that you may need to grant authorisation to your ~TiddlyWiki file to import tiddlers - this is fine and expected.

<<importTiddlers>>


When you type more than three characters in the search box at the upper right, any matching tiddlers are automatically displayed with the text highlighted. There's a couple of minor issues: the highlights don't get removed when you clear the search, and occasionally, on some browsers, keystrokes get missed if you type quickly so you may need to click the 'search' button to manually trigger the search.
[[Plugins]] are just tiddlers containing ~JavaScript code that is tagged with <<tag systemConfig>>. TiddlyWiki executes any [[Plugins]] as it loads; they can add [[Macros]] or otherwise extend and enhance the base code.

The recommended way to install a plugin into your own copy of TiddlyWiki is to use ImportTiddlers (there are instructions for ManuallyInstallIngPlugins when required).
InterfaceOptions are displayed when you click the 'options' button on the right in your TiddlyWiki file. They are saved in a cookie on your browser, making them sticky between visits:
<<<
<<tiddler OptionsPanel>>
<<<
* The user name for edits should be set //before// starting to edit things
* SaveBackups gives the option of whether to generate backup files
* AutoSave gives the option of automatically saving every time a change is made
* RegExpSearch allows more complex search expressions
* CaseSensitiveSearch does as its name implies

TiddlyWiki works on InternetExplorer 6.x and above under Windows. It also allows you to SaveChanges, albeit there are some annoying XP ServicePack2Problems and VistaIssues to work around. If you're having problems, make sure you've followed the appropriate [[downloading guidelines|Downloading]].

Known problems with ~TiddlyWiki under InternetExplorer:
* [[Gradient|GradientMacro]] fills sometimes appear in the wrong place until you move the mouse over the tiddler
* Horizontal gradients don't work correctly
* Links to tiddlers with multiple consecutive spaces in their titles is broken
* Runs of spaces within tiddlers get conflated into a single space when you edit a tiddler. This is particularly annoying when using MonospacedText blocks
JavaScript is the programming language that powers the [[Web]]. In the browser it is used to script behaviours that breathe life into the static world of [[HTML]] and [[CSS]], and it is increasingly being selected as a ServerSide programming language.

TiddlyWiki relies on JavaScript, and can't function properly without it. An alternative is to use a ServerSide adaptation like TiddlyWeb or TiddlySpace that can provide a static HTML view of TiddlyWiki content that doesn't require JavaScript in the browser.
Jeremy is the original creator of TiddlyWiki (nowadays, it's more of a [[group effort|Community]]). He works at [[BT|http://www.btplc.com/]] where he is Head of Open Source Innovation. He runs the [[Osmosoft]] team, and generally tries to help BT be better at understanding and participating in open source.

I can be reached at {{{jeremy (at) osmosoft (dot) com}}}, and I regularly read and reply to messages on the [[TiddlyWiki Google Groups|Community]]. I (occasionally) write on my TiddlySpace at http://jermolene.com/ and you can also find me on [[Flickr|http://www.flickr.com/photos/jermy/]], [[del.icio.us|http://del.icio.us/jeremyruston]] and [[twitter|http://twitter.com/Jermolene]].

Offers a popup menu to jump directly to any of the currently open tiddlers. It is used with the ToolbarMacro like this:
{{{
<<toolbar jump>>
}}}
Access keys are shortcuts to common functions accessed by typing a letter with either the 'alt' (PC) or 'control-alt' (Mac) key:
|!PC|!Mac|!Function|
|~Alt-F|~Ctrl-Alt-F|Search|
|~Alt-J|~Ctrl-Alt-J|NewJournal|
|~Alt-N|~Ctrl-Alt-N|NewTiddler|
|~Alt-S|~Ctrl-Alt-S|SaveChanges|
These access keys are provided by the associated internal [[Macros]] for the functions above. The macro needs to be used in an open tiddler (or the MainMenu or SideBar) in order for the access keys to work.

While editing a tiddler:
* ~Control-Enter or ~Control-Return accepts your changes and switches out of editing mode (use ~Shift-Control-Enter or ~Shift-Control-Return to stop the date and time being updated for MinorChanges)
* Escape abandons your changes and reverts the tiddler to its previous state

In the search box:
* Escape clears the search term
~TiddlyWiki is published under a BSD licence, and is owned by the not-for-profit [[UnaMesa Foundation|http://www.unamesa.org/]].

!Wiki Links
Any words or phrases that are CamelCase or compound words - in which the elements are joined without spaces - will result in them becoming links to tiddlers with that name.

For example,
{{{
WikiWord
}}}
Displays as:
WikiWord

To stop this happening the words must be escaped:
{{{
~WikiWord
}}}
Displays as:
~WikiWord

Similar to pretty links alternative text can be used to link to external sites:
{{{
[[Visit the Osmosoft site|http://osmosoft.com]]
}}}
Displays as:

^^[img[favicon.ico]] TiddlyWiki <<version>>

This tiddler contains a list of the tiddlers that appear in the MainMenu.  In the default TiddlySpace theme the MainMenu appears in the horizontal bar at the top of the page and in the default TiddlyWiki theme the MainMenu is on the left.
In some situations it can be useful to use the clipboard insead of InstallingPlugins using ImportTiddlers.

# Open a new browser window and navigate to the TiddlyWiki site containing the macro you want
# Double click the tiddler, or click the {{{source}}} button (on other sites it will sometimes be a {{{view}}} or {{{edit}}} button)
# The entire text of the tiddler should be selected; if not select it manually with ~Control-A or ~Command-A
# Copy the entire text of the tiddler to the clipboard
# Open your TiddlyWiki file in a new browser window
# Click {{{new tiddler}}} to create a new blank tiddler
## Paste the contents of the clipboard into it's body
## Set the title as appropriate
# Click {{{done}}} on the tiddler
# SaveChanges
The plugin should now be available for use.

|''URL:''|http://www.martinswiki.com/ |
|''Description:''|Martin Buddens's Plugins |
|''Author:''|MartinBudden |
There are several ways to incorporate mathematical formulae into TiddlyWiki, both of which let you to type ordinary LaTeX into a tiddler:
1. Use the [[jsMath|http://www.math.union.edu/~dpvc/jsMath/]] library via Bob McElrath's [[TiddlyJsMath|http://bob.mcelrath.org/tiddlyjsmath.html]] plugin
2. Use the [[MathJax|http://www.mathjax.org/]] library via [[PluginMathJax|http://math-template.tiddlyspace.com/#%5B%5BPluginMathJax%20v1.3%5D%5D]]

An alternative is to use a service like [[CodeCogs|http://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php]] that enables you to generate images of equations from LaTeX source that can be manually inserted into TiddlyWiki. Some examples of this technique are http://twmath.tiddlyspot.com/ and http://twequation.tiddlyspot.com/

MicroContent and MicroCopy being fashionable words for self-contained fragments of content that are smaller than an entire pages.

Usually MicroContent is presented through some kind of aggregation that reduces the perceptual shock and resource cost of context switching (eg the way that blogs aggregating several entries onto a page, or Flickr presents a bunch of photos in an album). TiddlyWiki aggregates MicroContent items called [[tiddlers|Tiddler]] into pages that are loaded in one gulp and progressively displayed as the user clicks hypertext links to read them.

Sometimes it's useful to stop a minor change to a tiddler from causing it to rise to the top of the timeline. This can be done by pressing the Shift key while clicking the 'done' toolbar button, or with the ~Shift-Control-Enter key. This behaviour can be switched to become the default with one of the AdvancedOptions.
The 'Missing' option on the MoreTab shows you the names of tiddlers that you've referred to but not gone ahead to define. It can be useful during writing sessions to keep track of things you need to come back and fill out.
TiddlyWiki sites on the Internet work well on the iPhone, iPad and Android devices but the browsers on those devices do not allow documents to be saved.

The functions of 'Timeline' and 'All' tabs have been around since the FirstVersion of TiddlyWiki. The purpose of the 'More' tab is to bring together some other, more specialised lists of tiddlers that can be useful during writing sessions. Currently, it offers lists of OrphanTiddlers and MissingTiddlers.
Within a CustomStyleSheet, you can include the text of another tiddler by including it in double square brackets. For example, if the tiddler MyFavouriteColour contains {{{#ff763e}}}, and the StyleSheet tiddler contained:

{{{
}}}

Then, the effect is that each CSS declaration will be set to {{{background-color: #ff763e;}}}.

In practice, for small bits of text like a colour, it makes sense to use TiddlerSlicing format to reference a chunk of text within a tiddler. See ColorPalette and StyleSheetColors for an example.

Of course, you can use this mechanism to redirect any part of a stylesheet, not just colours. And you can nest references for more complex effects.
A PageTemplate, ViewTemplate or EditTemplate can include the text of another tiddler by including it in double square brackets. For example:

{{{
<div>
</div>
}}}

You can also use TiddlerSlicing format to include a smaller chunk of the text of a tiddler.
TiddlyWiki is published under a BSD OpenSourceLicense that gives you the freedom to use it pretty much however you want, including for commercial purposes, as long as you keep the copyright notice. (You can see the full license text by doing a 'view source' in your browser).

~TiddlyWiki works with all recent versions of Opera, and can save changes using the TiddlySaver Java applet. If you're experiencing problems, make sure you've followed the appropriate [[downloading guidelines|Downloading]].
The 'Orphans' option on the MoreTab shows you the names of tiddlers that aren't linked to from any other tiddlers - in other words, tiddlers that there is no way for readers to find other than searching for them.
Osmosoft Limited was founded by JeremyRuston in 2005, and acquired by [[BT|http://btplc.com]] in 2007.

Osmosoft is now a small team within [[BT|http://www.btplc.com/]] that focuses on showing the value of open source working methods. It does this through working with the community on the ongoing development of TiddlyWiki, TiddlyWeb and TiddlySpace, and applying them to solve problems within BT.

See http://www.osmosoft.com/ for more details.

This tiddler contains the mark up to display the page. You can change the mark up to create a custom view of the page.

By default it contains the following markup:

{{{
<!--{{{-->
<div id='sidebarSearch'>
<span macro='search'></span>
</div>
<span class='siteTitle' refresh='content' tiddler='SiteTitle'></span>
<span class='siteSubtitle' refresh='content' tiddler='SiteSubtitle'></span>
</div>
<div class='clearFloat'></div>
</div>

<div id='sidebarOptions' refresh='content' tiddler='SideBarOptions'></div>
</div>
<div id='displayArea'>
<div id='messageArea'></div>
<div id='tiddlerDisplay'></div>
<div id='sidebarTabs' refresh='content' force='true' tiddler='SideBarTabs'></div>
</div>
<!--}}}-->
}}}
The ParameterParser is used in several places in TiddlyWiki:
* to process the StartupParameters after the '#' in a TiddlyWiki URL
* to process the DefaultTiddlers list
* to process the parameters to Macros
* to process tag lists when editing a tiddler
It supports a list of parameters each of the form "name:value". For example:
{{{
name:John   location:"Isle of Wight"   [[dietary needs]]:none   really:'yes, really'
}}}
Names and values that need to contain spaces may be quoted with single- or double-quotes or double-square brackets. The parser is generally tolerant of additional spaces.

When processing macro parameters, names and values may also be quoted with double-braces which causes them to be evaluated as a [[JavaScript|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JavaScript]] expression. For example:
{{{
title:{{window.title}}
}}}

The ParameterParser will cope with either the name or the value being omitted, and will substitute a specified default. This is how the StartupParameters work; the default parameter name is specified as 'open'.

PermaView is a button in the right-hand sidebar that sets the browser address bar to a URL embodying all the currently open tiddlers in the order that they are currently shown. To use it, arrange the open tiddlers that you want, click the permaview button, copy the URL from the browser address bar, and then paste it into an email, web page or whatever.

On some browsers, PermaView can be unreliable if any of the tiddler titles include characters that have special meanings in URLs (like "+" and "\") or are outside the basic ANSI character set.

Changes the browser address bar to a permalink to the current tiddler. It is used with the ToolbarMacro like this:
{{{
}}}

On some browsers, the PermalinkCommand can be unreliable if the tiddler title includes characters that have special meanings in ~URLs (like "+" and "\") or are outside the basic ANSI character set.
TiddlyWiki now has the ability to save options in the TiddlyWiki document itself (in addition to the ability to save options in cookies). Persistent options are stored in the [[SystemSettings]] tiddler. Persistent options are sometimes called "baked" options, since the value of the cookie is "baked" into the TiddlyWiki.

As an example, let's look at the {{{chkAnimate}}} option; this is currently stored as a cookie. You can get its value to be persistent by adding it to the [[SystemSettings]] tiddler. If there is no SystemSettings tiddler, you need to create it. Then add, for example:
<<<
chkAnimate: true
<<<
This has two effects, it makes the {{{chkAnimate}}} option persistent, and it gives the option a value (in this case {{{true}}}, it could equally well have been {{{false}}}).

The option can still be changed in the normal way (by ticking the box in the options panel); it can also be changed by editing the value in the [[SystemSettings]] tiddler. If the option is removed from the [[SystemSettings]] tiddler, then its value will be retained, but it will stored in a cookie.

!!Under the hood
The "source" of an option is controlled by the {{{config.optionsSource[optionName]}}} variable. This can take one of two values:
# {{{null}}} - the option is stored in a cookie, this is the ''default''.
# {{{setting}}} - the option is stored in the [[SystemSettings]] tiddler.
The {{{config.optionsSource[]}}} variable is controlled by the values in the [[SystemSettings]] tiddler. If the option exists in [[SystemSettings]], then {{{config.optionsSource[optionName]}}} is set to {{{setting}}}, and the option is persisted.

Sometimes text can inadvertently match TiddlyWiki formatting instructions - particularly program code, or text pasted from elsewhere. In these situations you can either use MonospacedText or you can accomplish the same thing without the monospaced effect like this:
{{{
This is AnotherLink, this is a copyright symbol &copy; and this site is called <<tiddler SiteTitle>>
<nowiki>This is AnotherLink, this is a copyright symbol &copy; and this site is called <<tiddler SiteTitle>></nowiki>
"""This is AnotherLink, this is a copyright symbol &copy; and this site is called <<tiddler SiteTitle>>"""
}}}
Which displays as:
This is AnotherLink, this is a copyright symbol &copy; and this site is called <<tiddler SiteTitle>>
<nowiki>This is AnotherLink, this is a copyright symbol &copy; and this site is called <<tiddler SiteTitle>></nowiki>
"""This is AnotherLink, this is a copyright symbol &copy; and this site is called <<tiddler SiteTitle>>"""
It is recommended that [[Plugins]]  start with some standard information in TiddlerSlicing format. For example, see the ExamplePlugin:
{{{
|''Name:''|ExamplePlugin|
|''Description:''|To demonstrate how to write TiddlyWiki plugins|
|''Version:''|2.0.2|
|''Date:''|Jul 12, 2006|
|''Source:''|http://www.tiddlywiki.com/#ExamplePlugin|
|''Author:''|JeremyRuston (jeremy (at) osmosoft (dot) com)|
|''~CoreVersion:''|2.1.0|
|''Browser:''|Firefox 1.0.4+; Firefox 1.5; InternetExplorer 6.0|
}}}
At the moment, only ~CoreVersion affects how [[Plugins]] are processed: if the ~CoreVersion is specified for a plugin, TiddlyWiki will only execute the plugin if the core code version matches or exceeds the version specified. For example, if you specify a ~CoreVersion of 2.2, version 2.1.x of TiddlyWiki will refuse to execute the plugin.

To indicate an error, plugins should just {{{throw}}} an exception. The text of the exception will be displayed in the PluginManager.
To make plugins, stylesheets and templates easier to read, you can use special alternative formatting for monospaced blocks.

In [[JavaScript|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JavaScript]] code:
{{{
//{{{
//}}}
}}}
In HTML templates:
{{{
<!--{{{-->
</div>
<!--}}}-->
}}}
In CSS stylesheets
{{{
/*{{{*/
div {color: #ff0000;}
/*}}}*/
}}}
It will be displayed as:
//{{{
//}}}

<!--{{{-->
</div>
<!--}}}-->

/*{{{*/
div {color: #ff0000;}
/*}}}*/
This tiddler contains the command to display the plugin manager:
{{{
<<plugins>>
}}}
~TiddlyWiki can be extended by [[installing plugins|InstallingPlugins]] that implement a wide variety of features (including [[Macros]], [[themes|http://tiddlythemes.com/]] or tweaks).

Community member Dave Gifford oversees an extensive catalogue of available plugins at [[TiddlyVault|http://tiddlyvault.tiddlyspot.com/]], and Eric Shulman maintains his own impressive collection of plugins at [[TiddlyTools|http://www.tiddlytools.com]]. More recently, Saq Imtiaz has built a service which lists plugins from all around the web in a single place, at [[plugins.tiddlywiki.org|http://plugins.tiddlywiki.org/]]

When you've chosen the plugin you'd like to import, follow the directions in ImportTiddlers (just make sure to tag the plugin {{{systemConfig}}}).

Since the FirstVersion of TiddlyWiki, the ReferencesButton has been implemented as a canned search for the name of the current tiddler. That approach was a bit disruptive because of the way that a search operation wipes the current reading state of the document.

The new implementation offers a popup menu of the names of all the referring tiddlers. It can be consulted without disturbing any tiddlers that are currently open.
Offers a popup menu displaying the tiddlers that link to the current one. It is used with the ToolbarMacro like this:
{{{
<<toolbar references>>
}}}
RegExpSearch is an [[advanced option|AdvancedOptions]] uses [[JavaScript|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JavaScript]]'s [[RegExp syntax|http://www.programmershelp.co.uk/docs/javascript/regexp.html#1193188]] to allow flexible searches.

TiddlyWiki's RSS feed is available [[here|http://www.tiddlywiki.com/index.xml]]. You can generate an RSS feed for your own TiddlyWiki using the GenerateAnRssFeed option.
Safari can SaveChanges using the TiddlySaver Java applet.

There are still some issues with Safari:
* Permalinks with Unicode characters in them (like [[this one|http://avm.free.fr/tidlipo.html#AdaptationFran%C3%A7aise]]) don't work properly
* When using Safari 6.0 on OSX "Mountain Lion", TiddlySaver.jar does not get loaded properly.  To work around this, go to "preferences / advanced" and check "Show Develop menu in menu bar", then mark "Disable local file restrictions" 
SafeMode can be selected by putting {{{#start:safe}}} (see StartupParameters) on the end of the TiddlyWiki URL. It stops TiddlyWiki from executing any [[Plugins]], modifying shadow tiddlers, or reading/writing cookies. It can be useful for tracking down problems caused by rogue [[Plugins]].

This is one of the InterfaceOptions you can use to customize TiddlyWiki. It determines whether TiddlyWiki creates a backup file each time you SaveChanges. I'd suggest keeping it switched on for safety!
If you've followed the appropriate [[Downloading]] guidelines, then you can save your changes as you go along. (AutoSave makes this easy).

It's important to save changes using ~TiddlyWiki's built in saving functionality (rather than the browser's 'Save As' function - [[here's why|SaveUnpredictabilities]]). Your local version of ~TiddlyWiki will have a button on the right hand side that says 'save changes' - that's the button you'll need to use.

It's worthwhile configuring your backup settings. You can edit the AdvancedOptions to decide when backups are made and where they're saved.

If you're still experiencing problems, the following links will help:
*General guidance on FireFox, InternetExplorer, [[Opera]], [[Camino]] or [[Safari]]
* if you're using InternetExplorer on Windows you might run into XP ServicePack2Problems or VistaIssues

This causes a blank, template TiddlyWiki to be saved alongside your file when you SaveChanges. It's intended to help people who are distributing TiddlyWikiAdaptations, and isn't needed when you're an end-user of TiddlyWiki.

The template TiddlyWiki is called 'empty.html'.
Saves any pending edits to the current tiddler, and switches it to the default view. It is used with the ToolbarMacro like this:
{{{
<<toolbar saveTiddler>>
}}}
Several people have reported problems with reusing TiddlyWiki when they have used the File/Save command of their browser to save it. The issue is that some browsers (notably FireFox) don't save the text of the HTML file exactly as it appears on the server, but rather save a snapshot of the current state of the page. In the case of a highly dynamic page like TiddlyWiki, this leads to all sorts of peculiarness...

TiddlyWiki now displays a warning if it thinks that it has been saved wrongly.
The default version of ~TiddlyWiki includes basic search functionality. When a search term is entered, all tiddlers that contain this term are opened, with the search term highlighted wherever it appears.

However, using the [[plugin architecture|Plugins]] of ~TiddlyWiki, the [[community|Help and Support]] has written a number of search plugins which can be installed on your local ~TiddlyWiki files easily. The most popular search plugins are:
*Eric Shulman's ~SearchOptionsPlugin - a highly configurable plugin that produces a list of tiddler titles with options for advanced searches. Available at http://www.TiddlyTools.com/#SearchOptionsPlugin
*Udo Borkowski's ~YourSearchPlugin - opens the search results in a large iFrame in the same style as Google (result, then synopsis). Available at http://tiddlywiki.abego-software.de/
*Frederik Dohr's ~SimpleSearchPlugin (which this site is using) - copy and paste the code on [[this page|http://svn.tiddlywiki.org/Trunk/contributors/FND/plugins/SimpleSearchPlugin.js]] into a new tiddler, tag the tiddler with systemConfig, and save / re-open your ~TiddlyWiki.


One of the neatest features of TiddlyWiki is that it is entirely self-contained in a single HTML file - even including graphics like the GradientMacro. The file contains the actual hypertext document, and the ~JavaScript, ~CascadingStyleSheets and HTML necessary to both view and edit it. This means that it is trivial to host a TiddlyWiki on a website, or to distribute one by email. And anyone with a reasonably recent web browser will be able to read and edit it.
Out of the box, ~TiddlyWiki doesn't have a Server Side back end. In many applications that's a great strength because it means that you can work with ~TiddlyWiki without having to be connected to the Internet or, because it's SelfContained, installing any software.

In other applications, a ~ServerSide can be very useful, particularly if you want to edit a ~TiddlyWiki while it's online, or you need lots of people to be able to edit a ~TiddlyWiki at the same time. The development [[Community]] has come up with several ~ServerSide implementations that are suitable for a range of applications, listed under HostedOptions.
Internet Explorer Windows XP ~SP2 seems to have a magical ability to keep track of html files that have been downloaded from the internet and saved on an NTFS drive. By storing additional data in an [[alternate data stream|http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/FileAndDisk/Streams.mspx]], it manages to keep them in the 'Internet' zone regardless of attempts to rename or modify the file. But, in order to be able to SaveChanges, TiddlyWiki needs to run in the 'My Computer' zone.

The solution is to right-click on the TiddlyWiki html file and choose //Properties//. If the file is blocked, you'll see an 'Unblock' button on the resulting property sheet that removes the protection and allows the file to open in the 'My Computer' zone. Then open the file in Internet Explorer - it might put up its information bar asking you whether you want to run it. You need to 'Allow blocked content' to let TiddlyWiki do its stuff.
<<<
If you find yourself running into the information bar frequently, you can disable it by visiting the "Options" dialog and, on the "Advanced" tab make sure that "Allow active content to run in files on My Computer" is checked.

Alternatively, you can rename the file to {{{*.hta}}} which has the added bonus of automatically granting all necessary save permissions.
<<<
This is all a bit frustrating. An easy alternative is to use FireFox, which seems to do the trick on all platforms.
ShadowTiddlers are special tiddlers that have default values that take over if they are undefined or deleted. For example, PageTemplate and StyleSheetColors are both shadow tiddlers.

ShadowTiddlers make it harder to render a TiddlyWiki inoperative by accidentally deleting something important.  You can see a list of shadow tiddlers in the Shadowed tab under the More tab in the right hand column.  When you create a tiddler with the same title you override the underlying shadow tiddler.

This tiddler contains the commands that produce the buttons contained in the slider above the timeline on the right.
In ~TiddlySpace they are displayed on the right hand side of the menu bar.
By default it is set to:
{{{
<<closeAll>><<permaview>><<newTiddler>>

You can edit it to include anything else you want.

In the SiteSubtitle tiddler you can define the subtitle of your ~TiddlyWiki (seen under the main title)
In ~TiddlySpace by default it is set as
{{{
a TiddlySpace
}}}

You can set it to anything you want, such as:
{{{
}}}
In the SiteSubtitle tiddler you can define the subtitle of your tiddlywiki (seen under the main title)
In ~TiddlySpace by default it is set as
{{{
a TiddlySpace
}}}

You can set it to anything you want, such as:
{{{
}}}
TiddlyWiki
In the SiteTitle tiddler you can define the title of your TiddlyWiki.  When you first create a TiddlyWiki it defaults to
{{{
TiddlyWiki
}}}
However you can edit it to display anything that you choose.
http://tiddlywiki.com/

TiddlyWiki defines a small number of SpecialTags that are used to indicate that tiddlers should be treated differently in some way:
* ''excludeSearch'': excludes a tiddler from search results
* ''excludeLists'': excludes a tiddler from the lists in the sidebar tabs
* ''systemConfig'': marks tiddlers that contain [[JavaScript|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JavaScript]] that should be executed once TiddlyWiki has loaded
* ''excludeMissing'': excludes a tiddler from the processing that generates the MissingTiddlers list. Use it when you have a tiddler that contains links to missing tiddlers and you don't want those missing links to appear in the MissingTiddlers list
~TiddlyWiki uses several "special tiddlers" to perform a number of essential functions as follows:
*[[Configuration]] tiddlers configure the layout of the page, including the MainMenu, the SiteTitle, the SiteSubtitle and other features.
*A tiddler called DefaultTiddlers is used to list the tiddlers that are shown at startup.
*A tiddler called SaveChanges is automatically displayed if there's a problem with saving. Any of them can be edited with the changes taking effect immediately.
* MoreTab, MissingTiddlers, OrphanTiddlers
TiddlyWiki obtains its StartupParameters from the //location// portion of it's URL (the bit after the '#'). At it's simplest, the StartupParameters can list the names of the tiddlers to be opened when the TiddlyWiki is opened:
{{{
http://www.tiddlywiki.com/#HelloThere JeremyRuston
}}}
In fact, that usage is equivalent to:
{{{
http://www.tiddlywiki.com/#open:HelloThere open:JeremyRuston
}}}
The complete list of commands is:
|!Command |!Description |!Example |
|open:title |Opens the tiddler with the specified title |http://www.tiddlywiki.com/#open:HelloThere |
|start:safe |Switches to SafeMode |http://www.tiddlywiki.com/#start:safe |
|search:text |Performs a search for the specified text |http://www.tiddlywiki.com/#search:jeremy |
|tag:text |Displays tiddlers tagged with the specified tag |http://www.tiddlywiki.com/#tag:news |
|newTiddler:title |Opens a new tiddler with the specified title in edit mode |http://www.tiddlywiki.com/#newTiddler:"This is a new tiddler" |
|newJournal:titleFormat |Opens a new tiddler with the specified [[Date Format String|Date Formats]] |http://www.tiddlywiki.com/#newJournal:"YYYY MMM DD" |

{{{
|Westerly|North|North East|
|~|Here|East|
|~|South|South East|
}}}
Displays as:
|Westerly|North|North East|
|~|Here|East|
|~|South|South East|
!Table CSS Formatting
A CSS class can be added to an entire table by adding a special row tagged with a 'k':
{{{
|myClass|k
|North West|North|North East|
|West|Here|East|
|South West|South|South East|
}}}
CSS properties can be added to a table cell by preceding the cell content with CSS name/value pairs. There are two alternative forms of syntax:
{{{
|color:red; North West|opacity:0.5;North|North East|
|color(green):West|Here|East|
|South West|South|South East|
}}}
Displays as:
|color:red; North West|opacity:0.5;North|North East|
|color(green):West|Here|East|
|South West|South|South East|
!Alternating Rows
TiddlyWiki automatically assigns the classes {{{oddRow}}} and {{{evenRow}}} to table rows {{{<TR>}}} elements. These can then be styled via the StyleSheet:
{{{
.viewer tr.oddRow { background-color: #fff; }
.viewer tr.evenRow { background-color: #ffc; }
}}}

You can categorise a tiddler by assigning it with one or more special keywords called tags.

Tiddlers which have been assigned tags can be accessed using the tagging menu that appears at the top right of each tiddler (when in read mode). For instance, this tiddler is tagged with "features", "terminology" and "gettingstarted". If you click on these tag names in the tagging menu, you get access to all the other tiddlers that have been given the same tag.

You can see a whole list of tags by looking in the [[SideBarTabs]], and selecting the Tags tab.

This site uses the standard convention that the names of tags start with a lower case letter, and tiddlers with an upper case letter, but this is not actually enforced.

Tags can be tiddlers themselves, with their own tags, so you can have hierarchies of tiddlers.  This is a surprisingly useful and powerful technique has been dubbed ~TagglyTagging by the [[Community]].
A 'tiddler' is the name given to a unit of MicroContent in TiddlyWiki.

Tiddlers are pervasive in TiddlyWiki. The MainMenu is defined by a tiddler, plugins are delivered in tiddlers, there are special StyleSheet tiddlers, and so on.

Other systems have analogous concepts with more prosaic names: like "items", "entries", "entities". Even though "tiddler" is a vaguely preposterous name it at least has the virtue of being confusingly distinctive rather than confusingly generic.

To hide text within a tiddler so that it is not displayed you can wrap it in {{{/%}}} and {{{%/}}}. It can be a useful trick for hiding drafts or annotating complex markup. Edit this tiddler to see an example.
/%This text is not displayed
until you try to edit %/
TiddlerSlicing allows you to use special notation to pull out a chunk of specially marked text from within a tiddler. Each slice has a name and a value which can be specified anywhere within a tiddler in any of these formats:
{{{
theName:  textSlice
|theName:| textSlice |
|theName| textSlice |
}}}
The name may contain any of the characters "a-ZA-Z_0-9", and may also be decorated with {{{''}}} or {{{//}}} markers for ''bold'' and //italic// formatting that are ignored. For example:
{{{
|''theName:''| textSlice |
}}}
Slices can be then be referenced by qualifying the parent tiddler name with the symbols "::" and the name of the slice. For example:
{{{
ColorPalette::PrimaryLight
}}}
TiddlerSlicing doesn't work eveywhere; at this point it is mainly intended to support the ColorPalette and similar usages.

Finally, here's an example of some more complex slice formatting:
{{{

''Credits:'' ~ASmith ~BBrown ~CCalony
//~SeeAlso:// The rise and fall of the M-perium

|URL:|http:\\sample.com\TestSliced |
|''Type:''| Plugin |
|//Source//| http:\\sample.com\TestSliced\src\text.js |
}}}
The slices defined in that example are:

[[Bookmarklets|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bookmarklet]] can be useful for TiddlyWiki hackers. They are browser bookmarks that contain embedded ~JavaScript that can reach into the currently loaded TiddlyWiki page to manipulate them and extract data.

* [[Scrub shadow tiddlers|javascript:(function(){if(window.version&&window.version.title=='TiddlyWiki'){for(var s in config.shadowTiddlers){store.removeTiddler(s);}refreshDisplay();}})()]] - deletes any overridden shadow tiddlers, reverting them to their default values. Handy when you’ve gone mad with PageTemplate customisations and your ~TiddlyWiki document won’t display properly
* [[Scrub tiddler fields|javascript:(function(){if(window.version&&window.version.title=='TiddlyWiki'){store.forEachTiddler(function(title,tiddler){tiddler.fields={};});refreshDisplay();}})()]] - all the extended fields from a ~TiddlyWiki document, including that pesky “changecount” field
* [[Rescue raw TiddlyWiki content|javascript:(function(){if(window.version&&window.version.title=='TiddlyWiki'){var w=window.open();w.document.open();w.document.write('<html><body><pre>');w.document.write(store.allTiddlersAsHtml().htmlEncode());w.document.write('</pre></body></html>');w.document.close();}})()]] - opens a new window containing the raw content of a ~TiddlyWiki.  Handy when you’ve inadvertently been editing an online version of TiddlyWiki that isn’t letting you save changes in the usual way

If you're creating your own bookmarklets, this [[editor|http://subsimple.com/bookmarklets/jsbuilder.htm]] and these [[tips|http://subsimple.com/bookmarklets/tips.asp]] are useful resources.

TiddlyFox is an extension for Mozilla Firefox that enables TiddlyWiki documents loaded from a {{{file:///}}} URI to save changes to themselves.

https://github.com/TiddlyWiki/TiddlyFox/raw/master/tiddlyfox.xpi

You can also install TiddlyFox from Mozilla's official addon library, but note that this version typically lags behind the latest release.


The ~TiddlySaver Java applet allows ~TiddlyWiki to save changes in a local version (from a file:// URL) of Safari, Opera and other browsers. It is a small file named [["TiddlySaver.jar"|TiddlySaver.jar]] that must be placed in the same directory as your ~TiddlyWiki file. As of August 2008, when an empty ~TiddlyWiki file is downloaded using either Safari or Opera, it is bundled with a copy of the ~TiddlySaver.jar file in a zip file - both files must be in the same directory ''whenever the ~TiddlyWiki file is opened'' in order to work.

[["TiddlySaver.jar"|TiddlySaver.jar]]  is signed by [[UnaMesa Association|UnaMesa]]. The [[UnaMesa Association|UnaMesa]] certificate is signed by the ''Thawte Code Signing CA'' intermediate certificate which is chained to the ''Thawte Premium Server CA'' root certificate. You need to trust this certificate Chain to be able to use the applet.

Note that there is currently [[a bug|http://trac.tiddlywiki.org/ticket/172]] that prevents ~TiddlySaver from working if you have specified a backup directory in AdvancedOptions and the directory doesn't exist.

Thanks to Andrew Gregory for the original TiddlySaver code, and ~BidiX for arranging all the certificate magic.

~TiddlyWiki is a complete [[wiki|WikiWikiWeb]] in a single HTML file. It contains the entire text of the wiki, and all the ~JavaScript, CSS and HTML machinery to be able to display it, and let you edit it or search it - without needing a server. Of course, there are also some useful ServerSide adaptations out there.

Unlike most wikis, TiddlyWiki isn't about group collaboration; it is a wiki in the sense of elevating linking be a part of the punctuation of writing. You can easily publish a TiddlyWiki you have created by placing the single file on a web server (for instance the homepage hosting provided by many ISPs). If you need full  group collaboration features, there are several HostedOptions to choose from.

~TiddlyWiki was originally created by JeremyRuston and is now a thriving [[open source|OpenSourceLicense]] project with a busy [[Community]] of independent developers. [[Osmosoft]], part of [[BT|http://btplc.com]], is the leading contributor to the project.

!!!Known Problems with Upgrading TiddlyWiki
!!!Known Problems with Importing in TiddlyWiki
* It is not possible to import from TiddlyWiki's on servers which are not [[CORS|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-Origin_Resource_Sharing]] enabled.  Although many popular sites, such as [[TiddlyTools|http://tiddlytools.com]], are currently CORS enabled, some are not. Fortunately this is fixable - webmasters can enable CORS on their sites by following the instructions [[here|http://enable-cors.org]] and if a website is not CORS enabled you can e-mail the owner to tell them the problem.
* Some browsers will only allow you to import from other TiddlyWikis in the same directory as your TiddlyWiki. If you use Chrome you can enable this by modifying the Chrome shortcut to include the following parameter
{{{
--allow-file-access-from-files
}}}
* In Opera you can enable this by entering the following into your address bar and ticking the checkbox.
{{{
opera:config#UserPrefs|AllowFileXMLHttpRequest
}}}
* Note some browsers, do not support import / upgrade in any form.

TiddlyWiki5 is a complete rewrite of TiddlyWiki to take advantage of HTML5 and node.js. It is under development on GitHub:

https://github.com/Jermolene/TiddlyWiki5

There is also an online demo you can play with:

http://tiddlywiki.com/tiddlywiki5

Before TiddlyWiki supported [[Plugins]], several independent developers created their own extended adaptations to support new features. These can be considered forks of the original core code, and won't necessarily be based on the latest version. For that reason, the trend more recently has been for developers to release new features as [[Plugins]] that can be readily mixed and matched and upgraded to the latest version.

Here's a list of known adaptations - note that many of these are quite old, and the links may be dead (all working as at 10 July 2008):

There's also some TiddlyWikiTools that extend ~TiddlyWiki.

~TiddlyWiki has been used as the basis of a few experiments in hypertext fiction.
*"[[Bibliotheca Caelestis. Tiddlywikiroman|http://bc.etkbooks.com/opac/]]" from Hartmut Abendschein

If your press the command key on the Mac or the control key on the PC while clicking on a link to a tiddler, the tiddler will be opened as usual if it isn't already open, but if //is// open, it will be closed. It makes a handy way to review links without having to move the mouse around to re-close tiddlers.

You can make this behaviour the default under AdvancedOptions (you can override back to the normal behaviour with the same command/control key).
A row of ToolbarButtons appears to the right of a tiddler title when the mouse is hovered over it. The buttons are:
* ''close'' - close the current tiddler
* ''edit'' - edit the current tiddler
* ''fields'' - show the custom fields attached to the current tiddler
* ''syncing'' - shows the server synchronisation status of the current tiddler
* ''jump'' - jump straight to another open tiddler
* ''references'' - displays all the tiddlers that link to the current tiddler
* ''done'' - save changes to a tiddler being editted
* ''cancel'' - cancel changes to a tiddler being editted
* ''delete'' - delete the current tiddler

The shadow tiddler ToolbarCommands allows these commands to customised and reordered.


The ~TiddlyWiki community have created several tutorials and guides. Here are some of the most popular ones:
* Dave Gifford's [[TiddlyWiki for the Rest of Us|http://www.giffmex.org/twfortherestofus.html]]
* Morris Gray's [[TW Help - TiddlyWiki help file for beginners|http://tiddlyspot.com/twhelp/]]
* Julie Starr's [[Tiddler Toddler|http://tiddlertoddler.tiddlyspot.com/]], documenting the learning curve from a beginner's perspective
* Screencasts from [[JimVentola|http://faculty.massasoit.mass.edu/jventola/videocasts/tidhelp2/tidhelp2.html]] and [[Phil Whitehouse|http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezNScBd7_h4]]

[[UnaMesa|http://www.unamesa.org/]] is a non-profit organisation that owns and holds the IPR for TiddlyWiki in trust for the public.
This tiddler contains the mark up to display tiddlers.  You can change the mark up to create a custom view of a tiddler.

By default it contains the following markup:

{{{

TiddlyWiki works fine under Internet Explorer on Windows Vista, although you may run into the blocking problem described in ServicePack2Problems.

Under Vista, TiddlyWiki will not save changes correctly if you are viewing the TiddlyWiki file in Vista's file preview pane.

TiddlyWiki seems to [[work fine on the Wii browser|http://blog.deuceofalltrades.com/2007/02/wii-browser-meets-microcontent.html]], at least for browsing -- it doesn't appear that you can save or upload changes.
Putting ~TiddlyWiki on a USB stick lets you carry around a self contained notebook that you can update wherever there's a computer, whether it's a Mac, Linux or a PC.

To be even more independent you can [[install FireFox on the drive|http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable]] as well!

A wiki (derived from the Hawaiian word for "fast") is a popular way of building collaborative websites. It's based on the two ideas of allowing users to easily edit any page and the use of special formatting to create links between pages. See Wikipedia for [[more details|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiki]].

~TiddlyWiki is fundamentally different from a conventional Wiki because it is not based on separate, entire pages of content, but rather items of MicroContent referred to as [[Tiddlers|Tiddler]] that live together on the same page.

Out of the box, ~TiddlyWiki is also different because it doesn't support public editing - or indeed any persistent editing when viewed over the web. However, there are ServerSide editions, TiddlyWikiAdaptations and [[Plugins]] that provide these features in a wide range of different configurations.
A WikiWord is a word composed of a bunch of other words slammed together with each of their first letters capitalised. WikiWord notation in a conventional WikiWikiWeb is used to name individual pages while TiddlyWiki uses WikiWord titles for smaller chunks of MicroContent. Referring to a page with a WikiWord automatically creates a link to it. Clicking on a link jumps to that page or, if it doesn't exist, to an editor to create it. It's also easy to have NonWikiWordLinks, and there's a WikiWordEscape for situations where you don't want a WikiWord to be interpreted as a link.
In this tiddler you put the text you wish to be displayed as the title of the page in the browser.
By default it is set to:
{{{
<<tiddler SiteTitle>> - <<tiddler SiteSubtitle>>
}}}
which could display something like:
{{{
}}}

You can change this at any time. For example:
{{{
}}}
I'm hoping that after using TiddlyWiki for a while a new WritingStyle will emerge that is appropriate for this medium.				Jakob Neilsen wrote an article about [[writing styles|http://www.useit.com/alertbox/980906.html]] for MicroContent back in 1998 that still seems surprisingly relevant.
At it's most basic this macro lists all the tags used in you tiddlywiki as dropdown lists of all the tiddlers which have that tag
For example
{{{
<<allTags>>
}}}

Displays as:
<<allTags>>
Hello $1, welcome to$2
To close all open tiddlers:
{{{
<<closeAll>>
}}}
Displays as:

<<closeAll>>
You just clicked on an example link, which was created by putting the word 'example' in double square brackets. You can now close this tiddler by clicking on the 'close' link above, and return to the guidelines.

Community member ~BidiX has created an adaptation of the ~TiddlyWiki user interface [[specially for the iPhone|http://www.apple.com/webapps/productivity/itwatiddlywikiforiphone.html]]
The {{{<<list>>}}} macro creates a list of tiddlers of a given type. It takes the following parameters:

{{{
<<list {type} [template:<templateTiddlerName>] [emptyMessage:"<message for when the list is empty>"]>>
}}}

The template tiddlers allows you to customise the text that is displayed about each tiddler. If it is not provided, then the default of "{{{<<view title link>>}}}" is used, which just includes the title of the tiddler as a link. You could add the author to each entry in the list by setting the template to a tiddler with the text "{{{<<view title link>> by <<view modified link>>}}}".

The empty message parameter allows you to specify text to be displayed if the list of tiddlers is empty.

The following types are supported:

!all
To list all tiddlers
{{{
<<list all>>
}}}
!filter
List tiddlers that match a certain [[filter|filters syntax]]. The following example lists all plugins.
{{{
<<list filter [tag[systemConfig]]>>
}}}
!Missing
To list tiddlers that have links to them but are not defined:
{{{
<<list missing>>
}}}
!Orphans
To list tiddlers that are not linked to from any other tiddlers:
{{{
<<list orphans>>
}}}
To list tiddlers shadowed with default contents:
{{{
}}}
!Touched
Show tiddlers that have been modified locally:
{{{
<<list touched>>

It is primarily targeted at power users, developers and any people with too much time on their hands who want to have fine-grained control over their web browsers behaviour and interface.
<<<
'perlguy' has written up his customizations to get TiddlyWiki working: https://github.com/perlguy/luakit-tiddlywiki

To create a new tiddler from the current date and time:
{{{
<<newJournal>>
}}}
Displays as:

<<newJournal>>
Using the following you get a new tiddler button:
{{{
<<newTiddler>>
}}}
Displays as:

<<newTiddler>>

Certain attributes can also be attached, such as a label, default text, tags and fields:
{{{
<<newTiddler label:WikiWord text:"text" tag:tag tag:tag accessKey:key focus:field>>
}}}
Displays as:

<<newTiddler label:WikiWord text:"text" tag:tag tag:tag accessKey:key focus:field>>
The options macro, used predominately in the backstage, allows the user to set a number of cookie based options that affect the enabled features of the Tiddlywiki.  These settings can be trivial, such as do you want animations enabled, or can be used for more complex things, such as enable regular expressions searches.
It is used as below:
{{{
<<options>>
}}}

Options can be used by plugin developers to add settings that can be used by their plugin.

Displays as:
<<options>>
To create a permaview URL for all open tiddlers:
{{{
<<permaview>>
}}}
Displays as:

<<permaview>>
Using the following creates a save changes button
{{{
<<saveChanges>>
}}}

Displays as:

<<saveChanges>>

The button label can also be changed and a tooltip added:
{{{
<<saveChanges [label] [tip]>>
}}}
Displays as:

<<saveChanges [label] [tip]>>
Search fields can be created using:
{{{
<<search>>
}}}
Displays as:

<<search>>

A default search term can also be added:
{{{
<<search [term]>>
}}}
Displays as:

<<search [term]>>
The slider macro allows embedding tiddlers within another tiddler, with the option to toggle the visibility of the [[transclusion|transcluded]] content:
{{{
}}}
* {{{cookie}}}: variable to save the state of the slider (e.g. {{{chkFooSlider}}})
* {{{tiddler}}}: name of the tiddler to include in the slider
* {{{label}}}: title text of the slider
* {{{tooltip}}}: tooltip text of the slider

For example:
{{{
<<slider chkTestSlider [[OptionsPanel]] "Options" "Open advanced options">>
}}}
Tiddlers tagged {{{systemServer}}} wrap up all the connection details of a particular server so that they can be accessed quickly.

A list of available {{{systemServer}}} tiddlers is presented at the start of the ImportTiddlers macro. Selecting one of them pre-selects the relevant fields in the wizard. After a successful import operation, ImportTiddlers also offers the opportunity to automatically create a {{{systemServer}}} tiddler with the details of the server that was used. {{{systemServer}}} tiddlers are also used by the [[syncing]] command.

Here's an example {{{systemServer}}} tiddler:

<<<
|''Description:''|My example server|
|''Type:''|mediawiki|
|''URL:''|http://www.myexampleserver.org/x/|
|''Workspace:''|Main|
|''~TiddlerFilter:''|[tags[important unpluggable]]|
<<<

The fields are as follows:

|!Field |!Description |!Status |
|Description |Brief description of the server |Optional |
|Type |Type of server connection eg {{{file}}} or {{{mediawiki}}} |Optional - defaults to {{{file}}} |
|URL |Host URL of the server |Mandatory |
|Workspace |Name of the workspace |Optional |
|TiddlerFilter |Specifies which tiddlers are to be imported |Optional |
The tab macro lets you create tab interfaces such as the one used for the timeline in the sidebar.
You use it as follows:
{{{
nameOfFirstTab "HoverValueOfFirstTab" TiddlerToShowInTab(or content)
nameOfSecondTab "HoverValueOfSecondTab" TiddlerToShowInTab(or content)
...
>>
}}}
''theCookieName'' is used to store the name of the tab you currently have open. It does this so that when you return the tiddler will still be displaying the last tab you had selected.

Example use of the tab macro:
{{{
<<tabs txtFavourite
tags "First tab" "tags macro"
tag "Second tab" "tag macro"
>>
}}}
The tag macro generates a button with the named [[tag]] which when clicked provides a drop-down list of [[tiddlers]] tagged with the given tag along with an option to open all of the tagged tiddlers.
{{{
<<tag tagName [label] [tooltip]>>
}}}
For example
{{{
<<tag macro>>
}}}
Which displays
<<tag macro>>
The tagging macro lists all the tiddlers that have a given tag. You set the tag you are looking for as the first parameter. E.g. to look for all tiddlers tagged with ''transclude'' you need to do the following:
{{{
<<tagging transclude>>
}}}
Displays as:
<<tagging transclude>>
This macro also accepts a 2nd parameter which allows you to define a separator.
{{{
<<tagging transclude sep:____>> e.g. <<tagging transclude sep:---------->>
}}}
Displays as:
<<tagging transclude sep:---------->>
To generate a list of [[tags]] applied to the current [[tiddler]]:
{{{
<<tags [tiddler]>>
}}}

Note this will not display any tags that are themselves tagged excludeLists.
For instance if there is a tiddler called "foo" tagged excludeLists and the tags macro is run on a tiddler with the tag foo, this tag will not be displayed.
The tiddler macro allows you to [[transclude|Tranclusion]] the text of other tidders, or sections of other tiddlers, into your current tiddler.
!!Basic Usage
The basic usage is:
{{{
<<tiddler tiddlerToTransclude>>
}}}

This displays as:
<<<
<<tiddler tiddlerToTransclude>>
<<<
Have a look at the actual [[tiddlerToTransclude]] tiddler.
!!Transcluding Sections and Slices
Instead of transcluding an entire tiddler, you can also transclude individual [[slices|Tiddler Slices]]  or [[sections|Tiddler Sections]]:
{{{
<<tiddler [[Title::sliceLabel]]>>
}}}
!!Parameterised Transclusion
Using the {{{with:}}} parameter, placeholders in the transcluded content can be replaced with a desired value. For example:
{{{
<<tiddler anotherTiddlerToTransclude with:"Jim" "Oz">>
}}}
Which displays as:
<<<
<<tiddler anotherTiddlerToTransclude with:"Jim" "Oz">>
<<<
Have a look at the actual [[anotherTiddlerToTransclude]].
This text has been transcluded from another tidder.
To create a chronological list of recent edits:
{{{
<<timeline field maxlength dateformat template:title groupTemplate:title filter:filter>>
}}}
All the parameters are optional:
* ''field'' determines which field to use as the basis for the list. It is usually {{{modified}}} or {{{created}}}
* ''maxlength'' is an integer that limits the maximum number of tiddlers to include in the list
* ''dateformat'' is a [[date format string|Date Formats]] that determines the format of the dates
* ''template'' names the tiddler to use as the template for list entries
** The default template is {{{<<view title link>>}}} to cause the display of the tiddler title as a link to the tiddler
* ''groupTemplate'' names the tiddler to use as the template for grouping entries in the list
** The default groupTemplate is {{{<<view %0 date '%1'>>}}}, where {{{%0}}} is the name of the field being displayed and {{{%1}}} is the ''dateformat'' selected in the third argument
* ''filter'' is a tiddler filter that is used to filter the tiddlers that appear in the list

For example:
{{{
<<timeline created 5>>>
}}}
displays as:
<<timeline created 5>>
{{{
<<timeline modified 5>>
}}}
displays as:
<<timeline modified 5>>
The date macro will display the current date and time:
{{{
<<today>>
}}}
Displays as:
<<today>>

This macro accepts one parameter - a date format. Such as:
{{{
<<today DD/MM/YYYY>>
}}}
Displays as:
<<today DD/MM/YYYY>>

~TiddlyWiki is available in 17 other languages languages.

Translations are packaged as plugins which are stored at https://github.com/TiddlyWiki/translations
This is a simple macro that outputs the version of TiddlyWiki that is being used.
{{{
<<version>>
}}}
Displays as:
<<version>>
The view macro is a powerful macro that allows you to access fields on a given tiddler and format them.

The first parameter is the field to access (note tags does not work).
The second parameter defines a [[view type|view macro types]] which defines how the value of that field should be rendered.

{{{
}}}
renders the link of the current tiddler i.e. <<view title link>>
!Text
Renders the field exactly how it is stored.
For example
{{{
<<view modified text>>
<<view title text>>
}}}
gives:
* <<view modified text>>
* <<view title text>>

Renders the value of the field as a link
{{{
}}}
gives

!Date
Applicable to the modified and created fields. Note a further parameter - a date format can be used.
{{{
<<view created date>>
<<view modified date "YYYY">>
}}}
gives:
* <<view created date>>
* <<view modified date "YYYY">>
See [[Date Formats]] for possible date format strings.

!Wikified
Treats the string as wikitext.
e.g.
{{{
<<view customfield wikified>>
}}}

An optional third parameter can be used to transform the text before it is wikified. For example:

{{{
<<view customfield wikified "//\$1//"
}}}

The result of this example would be to make the field display in italics.
