---+!! bin/view/~jsmith redirected to bin/view/JaneSmith You can go to a user's topic by ~loginname instead of %USERSWEB%/FirstLast. More specifically, if you open https:<nop>//twiki.example.com/cgi-bin/view/~loginname, you are redirected to https:<nop>//twiki.example.com/cgi-bin/view/%USERSWEB%/FirstLast. If you are logged in TWiki, you can go to your topic merely by ~. This is especially handy if login names are different from wikinames and shorter. ---++ UserSubwebs If UserSubwebs is in effect * ~loginname leads to the usrs's subweb * You can go to a topic of a user's subweb directly by e.g. https:<nop>//twiki.example.com/cgi-bin/view/~loginname/WebPreferences ---++ Combination with view URL shortening If you are shortening view URLs (https:<nop>//twiki.example.com/Web/Topic), you need to modify your URL rewriting rules so that ~ is recognized as a valid first character of a web name. Then, you can go to your topic merely by https:<nop>//twiki.example.com/~. __Related Topics:__ AdminDocumentationCategory, UserDocumentationCategory, UserSubwebs
