I have the following statement before loading the wikifarm scripts:
$PageLogoUrl = "$PubDirUrl/path/to/logo";
and it works for me. I'll test this later on my clean PmWiki

This could be made to work, but needs a bit of investigating. You are
right, it won't work as wikifarm is currently written.

I edited (but did not save)
and added a reference to PmWiki/TextFormattingRules -- the farm
correctly interprets this as a reference to PmWiki/TextFormattingRules
in the main area. By default, the PmWiki and Profiles groups are
shared. You can share additional groups by listing them on the
The idea of a shared group is that any references to pages in a
shared group from anywhere on the farm always resolve to the central
area. So from any field, PmWiki/PmWiki always takes you to the
central PmWiki page, rather than to a page in the current field.
In your example above, you are referring to a page called
PmWiki/WikiHelp in the Palaestinainfo field. If you are in the
Palaestinainfo field, just edit any page and type PmWiki/WikiHelp,
then press Preview. You will see that it links to the central area,
whereas a reference to Main/SomePage links to the current field.
The current implementation assumes that Main is not shared, as it
uses Main as the Default Group. If you try to share Main, it will
You can refer to a page in another field by adding its field name
as a prefix. So If I am in the Visionen:/ field and want to refer
to a page in the Infoladen:/ field, I'd write:
If the page exists, you get a link; if not, you get the ? markup.

the regular wiki.d and wikilib.d directories. Each field takes its
data from wikifarm/Field.wiki.d and wikifarm/wikilib.d

I'll check this. Are you creating a file called
