This plugin allows wiki admins to configure the wiki using a web interface, rather than editing the setup file directly. A "Setup" button is added to the admins' preferences page.

Warning: This plugin rewrites your setup file. Any comments or unusual things (such as perl code) in the setup file will not be preserved. Also, it will only work correctly with new format setup files, as introduced in ikiwiki 2.60. Older setup files have a "wrappers" section, which will not be properly preserved if this plugin is used.

Most settings can be modified using the web interface. Plugins can be enabled and disabled using it too. Some settings are not considered safe enough to be manipulated over the web; these are still shown, by default, but cannot be modified. To hide them, set websetup_show_unsafe to false in the setup file. A few settings have too complex a data type to be configured via the web. To mark additional settings as unsafe, you can list them in websetup_unsafe.

Plugins that should not be enabled/disabled via the web interface can be listed in websetup_force_plugins in the setup file.

When the setup is saved, the setup file will be rewritten with the new settings, and the wiki will be refreshed, or rebuilt, to make the setup changes take effect.
