The periodic "updateClock()" call made in the header for several of the built-in skins (Eagle, Enhanced1, and Xekri) violates the new stricter CSP, since it requires a JS eval. We don't need an eval here: we can pass the function's name literally to window.setTimeout instead, which treats it as a Function object, which doesn't need to be eval'd. check-in: eac15b4c user: wyoung tags: trunk

Zeroed a pointer in its declaration to squish a warning from GCC 4.8.4 on Ubuntu 14.04 about use of a potentially uninitted pointer. I don't think it's actually possible for the current code to use the pointer in the window between its declaration and first use, but I think we can afford the extra machine instruction this will cost us. (I assume newer GCCs are smart enough to analyze this situation correctly, which is why the warning hasn't been squished earlier.) check-in: 892781cb user: wyoung tags: trunk

<h3>Enable Forum Search</h3>

One of the underlying assumptions of the forum feature is that you will
want to be able to search the forum archives, so the <tt>/forum</tt>
page always includes a search box. Since that depends on search being
enabled on the Fossil repository, Fossil warns that search is disabled
until you go into Admin &rarr; Search and enable the "Search Forum"
setting.

You may want to enable some of the other Fossil search features while
you're in there. All of this does come at some CPU and I/O cost, which
is why it's disabled by default.


<h3>Single Sign-On</h3>

as your project's other Fossil-managed content, you inherently have a
