[pmwiki-users] BUG: Targets w/Dot Allow Editing

Very cool.  I have modified the cosmetic links, for the new pages, and have
the correct grouping.  Also, just in case, I have added a default "edit"
password in the config file.  All seems to be well on this end.

For Patrick, or whomever is listening, this would be something helpful to
point out within the docs.  I am sure I am not the only person who has been
puzzled by it.  If I were, then the other six replies I received probably
would have identified the same.

On a more positive note, at least I've moved up from b19 to b51.  ;-)

It's not a bug, it's a feature. (TM)

PmWiki uses dots to separate groupnames and pagenames, as in Main.HomePage. 
If you enter a wikiword with a dot in it or try to link an item containing a
dot, PmWiki uses the text before the dot as a group name and after the dot
as a page name. Hence, JohnP.Smith.

Because the group is very likely a new one (JohnP), there is no edit
protection on it unless you have set a global edit password in config.sys.
