|Description|display tabbed discussion summary with comment input form|
>see [[DiscussionPluginInfo]]
When installed, [[DiscussionPlugin]] can automatically modify the default shadow [[ViewTemplate]] so that all tiddlers will be rendered with two tabs: "Page", and "Discussion".  The "Page" tab displays the regular tiddler content, while the "Discussion" tab displays the summary list of comments as well as an input form to enter new comments.  You can enable/disable this action by setting/clearing the following checkbox:
><<option chkDiscussionTemplate>> Automatically modify default shadow [[ViewTemplate]]
Note: //''You must reload your document for changes to this option to take effect.''//  In addition, this option is only applied to the shadow [[ViewTemplate]].  If you are using a custom [[ViewTemplate]], you will need to manually alter that template to add the Page and Discussion tab display.

''Please see [[DiscussionPluginInfo]] for additional configuration options and instructions.''

|Description|select and display FAQ tiddlers from a droplist, sorted by date|
{{{<<faqViewer startwith:TiddlerName tagname classname sortby dateformat>>}}}
*''startwith:TiddlerName'' (optional)<br>
*''tagname'' (optional)<br>specifies the set of tiddlers to include in the FAQ list (default='faq')
*''classname'' (optional)<br>specifies a CSS class to be applied surrounding the FAQ tiddler content
*''sortby'' (optional)<br>specifies the name of a tiddler field to sort by.  Use '+' or '-' as a prefix on the fieldname to indicate ascending or descending order, respectively (default='-modified').  You can also use the special keyword, ''Description'', to sort alphabetically based on the value of a slice named 'Description', that can be defined in each FAQ tiddler.  Note: if a particular FAQ tiddler has no description slice, the title of the tiddler is used as a fallback.
*''dateformat'' (optional)<br>specifies the formatting for dates displayed in the list.  Use " " (a single space) to suppress the date display.

|Description|view any tiddler by entering it's title - displays list of possible matches|
''View a tiddler by typing its title and pressing //enter//.''  As you type, a list of possible matches is displayed.  You can scroll-and-click (or use arrows+enter) to select/view a tiddler, or press escape to close the listbox to resume typing.  When the listbox is not displayed, pressing //escape// clears the current input.
>see [[GotoPluginInfo]]
*Match titles only after {{twochar{<<option txtIncrementalSearchMin>>}}} or more characters are entered.<br>Use down-arrow to start matching with shorter input.  //Note: This option value is also set/used by [[SearchOptionsPlugin]]//.
*To set the maximum height of the listbox, you can create a tiddler tagged with <<tag systemConfig>>, containing:
