Would you mind looking at the download section in cookbook page again?


Is the text about using the CVS-version clear enough now? And is the link 
for the CVS-version visible enough? I think you'll run into problems if 
you use 1.4... with PmWiki 2.

If you're missing pmwiki.php, you can fix it so that it works. Requires a 
minor setting in your .emacs though. Here's an excerpt from the changelog 
"documenting" this feature...

Modified automatic handling of password protected pages. 
Removed old variables and introduced a more generic transformation of the 
URI. The new variable is called pmwiki-uri-transforms and is a list, where 
each element represents a transformation. These transformations are 
applied in sequence. 
Example of transformations 

(set 'pmwiki-uri-transforms

The first transformation allows you to use a site where pages are 
automatically redirected from http://some.site.se/Group/Page to 
The second transformation inserts user:password into the URI when the URI 
starts with http://some.site.se. This implies that you use the samme 
username/password for all wikis on that site.
