Be sure to read the documentation in the urlapprove.php script
itself -- the documentation that is in pmwiki.org doesn't adequately
It's easy to set url approvals only in certain groups -- simply do
the include of urlapprove.php only in the per-group customization
files. Another way to do it is to place
$EnableUrlApprovalRequired = 0;
in config.php, then place
$EnableUrlApprovalRequired = 1;
in any per-group or per-page configuration files where you want
url approvals to be activated.

When url approvals are activated, they apply to all existing wiki
pages as well as new ones. In other words, the urls are approved or
unapproved at the time they're displayed to the browser, not at the
time they're entered into the page.
