Ok, so, there seems to be two options:
2. "Cookbook recipe": UserAuth
I'm getting the impression that pmwiki doesn't have the notion
of "registered users". Is that correct?
If so, it seems like I've got to set a password for a page, using
this action=attr URL thingy:
That seems a bit crazy to me, since pages will be added all
the time by various people, so I can't follow everyone around
doing this action=attr thing.
How about this: can I just make it so only the admin can edit
pages? That's ok for now, since I'm the only one editing pages
right now. In a few months though it'll turn into a pain.
Also -- is my cookbook directory supposed to be empty?
Do I manually add "recipes" as-needed?
