Kathryn gives the correct answer, which is to create a special
"wikilib.d" directory in the skin directory, and then have
the skin.php add the code:
## automatic loading of skin default config pages
global $WikiLibDirs, $SkinDir;
$where = count($WikiLibDirs);
if ($where>1) $where--;
array_splice($WikiLibDirs, $where, 0,
Essentially what this is doing is to insert the skin's
wikilib.d/ directory into the set of directories to be searched
for page files. What's more, it puts the skin's wikilib.d just
*before* the default wikilib.d/, so that pages in the skin's wikilib.d/
will override same-named pages from the PmWiki default distribution.
This information is officially available in the "Skin-specific Wiki Pages"
section of http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/SkinGuidelines.
However, that page looks a bit lengthy, so I can understand why
it'd be hard to find. Perhaps the page could use some refactoring
and or code cleanup if anyone would care to work on it a bit. :-)
