Zwiki is a free wiki engine for Zope, for creating both standard Zope and CMF/Plone wikis. You can find out all about it at .

This month we have some and the return of CMF metadata. Thanks to alecm, jbb, Tim Olsen and Mark Ferrell in particular.


Robustness fixes, Plone 2.1 compatibility fixes, simplifications, CMF metadata support.

Upgrade notes

You might want to delete the "outline" object using the ZMI, allowing Zwiki to create a more ZMI-compliant one. Note this will lose any manual re-ordering of subtopics you may have done.

The default colour for "serious" issues is lighter. This will take effect for each issue page as it is edited. To make all pages show the correct colour right away, visit SomePage/upgradeAll in your browser.

Page hierarchy


Issue tracking

  • add missing headers for german po
  • drop unnecessary -PT for pt po files

  • make hasSkinTemplate check filesystem templates, such as the alternate subtopics template (#1113, Mark Ferrell, SM)
  • drop the special style for ratings, for now


  • allow create to work without a request, for debugging
