partially right: ... state tiddlers are seved but $:/temp/... tiddlers are __not saved__ As the name says, "$:/state/..." tiddlers contain the TW state. eg: "which tab is selected" by the <<tabs ...>> macro, and so on. If you want to reset your TW to the initial state of eg: empty.html you can safely delete them. I even did create a plugin, to get rid of them <https://wikilabs.github.io/editions/remove-states/>. ...

That's why there are some "best practices" in place. eg: naming conventions for plugin authors: $:/plugins/<author>/<plugin-name>/<tiddler-name> see my plugin above. or a list of names used by the core: http://tiddlywiki.com/#Naming%20of%20System%20Tiddlers have fun! mario -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "TiddlyWiki" group.
