My apologies that no-one has responded.  I've gone back and checked
the archives for your questions, and you apparently had questions
regarding displaying of thumbnails and the DownloadManager recipe.

As far as the message on displaying thumbnails, mea culpa.  I was
out of town for two weeks when your message arrived and it got
overlooked when I returned.  If you're still having trouble with 
that, send me the markup you're having trouble with (or build an 
example page in the Test group on pmwiki.org) and I'll be very 
glad to help.

As for the DownloadManager recipe, I think it's important to note
that the recipes aren't directly a part of PmWiki -- they're
community-contributed "add ons".  Some recipes get orphaned --
the original contributor posts the recipe and then disappears --
and in these cases there's nobody left to be able to answer
questions about the recipe.  This appears to be what has happened
to DownloadManager... it hasn't been updated since January 2006
(even though there have been questions), and when your question
went to the list there was nobody around who could answer it.

We may need to mark the DownloadManager recipe as "abandoned"
or in need of someone to maintain it.

Hope this helps,
