encode="entity" Encode special characters into HTML entities. See ENCODE for more details. no encoding
encode="url" Encode special characters for URL parameter use, like a double quote into %22 no encoding
encode="quote" Escape double quotes with backslashes (\"), does not change other characters; required when feeding URL parameters into other TWiki variables no encoding
>

encode="off" Turn off encoding. See important security note below encode="safe"
encode="safe" Encode special characters into HTML entities to avoid XSS exploits: "<", ">", "%", single quote (') and double quote (") (this is the default)

    • IMPORTANT: There is a risk that this variable could be misused for cross-site scripting (XSS).
    • URL parameters passed into HTML form fields must be entity ENCODEd.

    • IMPORTANT: There is a risk that this variable can be misused for cross-site scripting (XSS) if the encoding is turned off. The encode="safe" is the default, it provides a safe middle ground. The encode="entity" is more aggressive, but some TWiki applications might not work.
    • URL parameters passed into HTML form fields must be entity ENCODEd.
      Example: <input type="text" name="address" value="%URLPARAM{ "address" encode="entity" }%" />
 
    • Double quotes in URL parameters must be escaped when passed into other TWiki variables.
      Example: %SEARCH{ "%URLPARAM{ "search" encode="quotes" }%" noheader="on" }%
    • When used in a template topic, this variable will be expanded when the template is used to create a new topic. See TWikiTemplates#TemplateTopicsVars for details.
    • Watch out for TWiki internal parameters, such as rev, skin, template, topic, web; they have a special meaning in TWiki. Common parameters and view script specific parameters are documented at TWikiScripts.
