Is it possible to specify a default ros version with the roswiki macros?

I'm writing ros-distribution-specific wiki pages as shown in the bottom of the post, and I'd like to display by default a page that does not correspond to the latest stable release (in my case i want to display diamondback instead of electric). Is this possible?, and if so, where can I find the relevant documentation?.

TIA.

<<Version()>>

{{{#!wiki version diamondback
<<Include(foo/diamondback)>>
}}}

{{{#!wiki version electric
<<Include(foo/electric)>>
}}}

The default version is currently hardcoded in the javascript. We don't have cycles to rewrite this right now, but would happily accept a patch to the javascript and wiki macro code that would enable more customized setting.

The code for the javascript is here:

http://ros.org/_wiki/common/js/rosversion.js

The code for the version macro is here:

https://code.ros.org/svn/ros/stacks/rosorg/trunk/roswiki/macro/

The version is global (recently changed to Electric).

I don't know any way to override that. Maybe someone else does.

You can write you're own buttons using the seesaw macros http://www.ros.org/wiki/seesawexample but I'd recommend not doing that and just putting a clear header at the top, saying "If you want Diamondback, click below." Or you could lay the documentation out side by side and not use any macros. tfoote ( 2011-10-28 08:50:11 -0600 )edit
The clear heading stating the supported version is what I had and I'll stick to that for now. Thanks all for pointing out the relevant places that enforce the current behavior. Adolfo Rodriguez T ( 2011-11-01 23:33:11 -0600 )edit
