There was some discussion about this a while ago, but I can't remember the
I am running PmWiki on a Windoze server. Windoze preserves the case of
filenames, but does not distinguish between upper and lower case. So as far
as W is concerned, Main.SideBar, Main.Sidebar, and Main.sidebar are all the
However, when somebody edits a page and saves it, W quite cheerfully
renames the saved file to correspond to the "current" case. This then leads
to very confusing entries in Main.RecentChanges where it looks like there
are three pages called sidebar with variations in capitalization. My
understanding is that if I was running this under the crunchy goodness (TM)
of Unix, there really would be three separate files, which is perhaps even
more confusing to the average author.
Is there a good solution to this? For my money, having PmWiki force
filenames to all lower case would work. Can I add this as a local config item?
==== new topic, vaguely related:
Is there any way to prevent new groups from being formed? One of the wikis
I run is used to track projects, where each project is in its own group.
Adding groups by accident (spelling error) confuses matters.
