Notice text: How to change the boilerplate text for notices

Wikipublisher inserts standard text at the start and end of printed documents. How do I change this?


The goddess of grammar

When Wikipublisher typesets an article, report or book, it automatically inserts text from pre-defined “boilerplate” header and footer pages. To find any such pages, it looks first in the current group, then in the Site group. Header page content is placed at the start of the document and footer page content is placed at the end.

The Wikipublisher script library for PmWiki includes the following default header and footer pages:

  • Site.Page Print Footer text goes at the end of articles — for the (:typeset-page:) and (:typeset-trail:) directives
  • Site.Page Print Header? is currently not defined — if present, it is printed after the “title, author, date, abstract, table of contents” block
  • Site.Print Header text goes at the start of reports, on the title verso page — for the (:typeset:) trail directive, search and calendar typeset commands (e.g., a legal notice)
  • Site.Print Footer text goes at the end of reports, at the foot of the last page
  • Site.Book Print Header text goes at the start of books, on the title verso page — for the (:typeset-book:) trail directive (e.g., a legal notice)
  • Site.Book Print Footer text goes at the end of books, at the foot of the last page

When typesetting a single page, Wikipublisher includes the Group Print Header? and Group Print Footer? pages, if present. The text of these pages is appended to the start and end of the page text, respectively.

The default header and footer pages are installed in a separate library directory. This means that if you edit one of the pages and wish to revert to the default text setting, simply use the standard PmWiki process for Deleting Pages.
