Feature Proposal: Add beforeNewWeb and afterNewWeb handlers to the Plugin API


  • Allow a plugin to enforce web naming conventions or other controls on new web creation
  • Allow a plugin to perform follow-on actions when a new web is created such as replicating the creation of the new web to a mirror or backup site or sending a notification to the site administrators

Description and Documentation

Allow plugins to detect the creation of new webs and object or react to the creation of the new web.

Excellent. How about: preprosessing topics from template web when copying them to the target location including creating new topics on the fly.

Glad someone finally asked for this. I think we've cleaned up the store API sufficiently to make this feasible. The handlers should be called from Foswiki::Meta.

Looks like this would be reasonably well accepted. But no developer. Setting to parked.
