Item76: Make DefaultWeb not equal to UsersWebName

$TWiki::cfg{UsersWebName} is used as the default web if none is provided (it's also used as the first link in the default breadcrumbs, which is another problem). I would prefer to specify another web, as the current behavior encourages users to create content in the User's Web, which they really shouldn't.

So, may I suggest that a $TWiki::cfg{DefaultWebName} be used instead? It could be set to Main by default, to provide backwards compatibility.

This has been proposed as a feature request: CreateHomeWebConfigVar. That request has been accepted, so this will be implemented.

-- KoenMartens - 08 Nov 2008

The CreateHomeWebConfigVar comments has shown that the 14-day acceptance was for another proposal than what is developed to be and that there are at least 4 opinions that are very different how to implement anything related.

I just added the conclusion to the proposal topic that we should go back to the very original proposal that was raised that only adds a config var so you can separate users web and the default web. This is also what this bug item asked for.

I am setting this to No Action. It can be flipped back when there is a new decision on CreateHomeWebConfigVar.
