Quick and dirty...

on Main/Main

(:include Main/Section1:)

on Main/Section1

Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah...
blah blah blah blah blah blah blah...

See http://pmwiki.org/wiki/Test/Cjc
as an example.

You mean the PageName as the heading?  Easily done with the
special page name of GroupHeader.

in YourGroup/GroupHeader

! {$Name}

Or use Site/GroupHeader to apply by default to all groups.

I believe there are some comments in the local/config.php sample that
explain how to turn that on.  See GUIButtons in that file... is that
what you were asking about??

I use UserAuth with the CMS like stuff... but there is also AuthUser
built into PmWiki.  I find the UserAuth to be more feature complete
for me.   If you want to look at UserAuth it's at:


AuthUser is built in... see the normal PmWiki docs for that.
