Composition Setup

Description

Performs setup operations for some of the composition macros, as well as allowing page-wide defaults to be set, allowing customization of various elements of tabs or cloaked content.

This is an optional macro when using the Deck of Cards macro to create Card or when creating Creating Cloaked Content.

When included, this macro must be put at the top of a page for them to work.

The name of the page attachment containing the default settings for this page. e.g. Home^composition.properties.

The file should be a text file with properties listed as described below.

Notes

Currently, there is no method of inputting the *defaults* parameter when editing the markup. If you would like to add this parameter, you would need to do so via the Wiki Markup method.

These properties should be put into the body of the composition-setup macro. Alternately, they can be put into a text file which is attached to a page and linked via the 'defaults' macro property.

Name

Default

import.css

 

Allows a Cascading Style Sheet to be imported into the page. The value may be an attachment link (e.g. 'Foo^bar.css'), an absolute link (e.g. 'http://foo.com/bar.css') or a server-relative link (e.g. '/bar.css').

When uploading a CSS file, ensure the attachment properties for the file, specifically the property New Content Type, is 'text/css' and NOT 'applications/x-upload-data' or you may experience issues.
