Migrate User from TWiki - Invalid form name

hello I will migrate from twiki 4.2.3 to foswiki 1.0.0 beta 3. I copied the files from twiki/data/Main/ReinhardWeh.txt to the foswiki/data/Main/ReinhardWeh.txt, also edit the WikiUsers.

But when I now will click on the User Homepage I got the message

Invalid form name

I diff the twiki and foswiki UserTopic and thing there will be this problems (see attached files)

TWIKI %META:FORM{name="%25SYSTEMWEB%25.UserForm"}%

FOSWIKI %META:FORM{name="%25TWIKIWEB%25.UserForm"}%

I have read the MigrationGuide there is nothing which will tell me what I have done wrong


The problem was solved when I enable the TWikiCompatibilityPlugin , now it will work.

For those that have this problem as the only problem you could also just * Set TWIKIWEB = System in Main.SitePreferences
