This contrib packages in a convenient way the Javascript library and the CSS file needed to implement TWisty Sections.

To use the libraries, you must place the following scriplet either in the head section of the page (by modifying the TWikiSkins) or putting it somewhere in the topic:

<style type="text/css" media="all">
@import url("%PUBURLPATH%/TWiki/TwistyContrib/twist.css");

<script type="text/javascript" src="%PUBURLPATH%/TWiki/TwistyContrib/twist.js"></script>

It's recommended to use the TWiki:Plugins.TwistyPlugin, as it eases the deployment and use of this contrib.

Caution: If the previous scriplet is put in the HEAD section of the page or the TWiki:Plugins.TwistyPlugin is used, it won't work if the <body onload=""> manager is set by the skin. Check the twist.js file for an idea on how to register an eventmanager for the onload event without overwriting the previous one.

This Contrib should work in all versions of TWiki. It has been tested against TWiki:Codev.CairoRelease and TWiki:Codev.DakarRelease.


Skins can customize the color of the twisty placeholder by modifiying the .twistyPlaceholder style.

Expand... Hamlet is without question the most famous play in the English language... Collapse...

Hamlet is without question the most famous play in the English language. Probably written in 1601 or 1602, the tragedy is a milestone in Shakespeare's dramatic development; the playwright achieved artistic maturity in this work through his brilliant depiction of the hero's struggle with two opposing forces: moral integrity and the need to avenge his father's murder.
