...and the need for the headers is part of the reason it's difficult
to embed PmWiki inside of other pages.
I've often thought about making pmwiki.php something that could
be easily embedded inside of other pages, but it's very difficult
to get edits to work properly, and PmWiki expects certain things
to be set in urls and other places. So, I've generally foregone
trying to support this mode of operation.
However, it might be doable. First, I think your best bet is
to turn off PmWiki's skins entirely, by setting $EnableSkinLayout = 0; .
Then you can set custom values for $PageStartFmt and $PageEndFmt
In fact, a very good start might be to just try (in local/config.php):
$EnableSkinLayout = 0;
$PageStartFmt = '';
$PageEndFmt = '';
which will tend to turn off everything surrounding the wiki markup
output, and disable the generation of headers. Then you can
start adding things to $PageStartFmt and $PageEndFmt as needed
to surround the wiki markup with other items needed.
If you try this, let me know how it goes and if you have any
questions -- the more I think about it the more I think it
could be easily done.
