I think I've found an answer to a question some have asked about how
to incorporate something like "CMS Like" for AuthUser. In all
probability, this has been discussed ad infinitum, but in case it was
Basically, the site administrator creates a CMS menu page (e.g.
Site.CMSMenu), then edits the site theme template to include this page
instead of the normal PmWiki menu. By adding role-based (i.e. 'edit'
or 'admin') if-then statements, the role-restrictive behavior is in
place. This allows any non-programmer to quickly create CMS behavior.
The recipe gives an example. I also recommend password protecting the
edit of the menu to the "@admin" group. (This assumes "vanilla"
UserAuth that uses the web page to administer users/groups).
PM, it would be nice if we also had the ability to if-then off the
user's group(s). Is that an easy feature?
