First off, thanks for PmWiki! It has really been a pleasure to work
with. The changes to the formatting variables in 0.5 have made it very
flexible and easy to use.
In the process of converting my wikis to pmwiki I created a couple of
addons, which I thought I would share in case anyone was interested. The
first ("flexlayout") changes the default formatting variables to allow
the site appearance to be manipulated with stylesheets, relying less on
the variables approach. The second ("webmenu") builds on the first to
allow a left-hand side navigation menu. You can see both in action at:
If there is any interest in these, I can add them to the cookbook. In
the meantime, you can download them here:
I did run into one problem, which I hope I can explain properly. When
you [[include]] a file, the included file inherits the variables (like
$Group, $Title, etc.) from the including page. Because of this I can put
[[$Edit Edit this page]] in the included file, and clicking it will edit
the including page, not the included page. Which is what I want.
However, if I don't use an [[include]] and set up the page layout using
an array instead, like:
$HandleBrowseFmt = array (
...the variables are not inherited, and the [[$Edit]] link above would
edit the included page, instead of the including page. Whew. Would it be
possible to make the array behavior match the [[include]] behavior?
Okay, that's all. Thanks again and keep up the great work!
