PmWiki embeds just fine into my website. I disable the pmwiki menu and
use an html header and an html left column. In this column I use
phplayersmenu for a javascript menu and I have a login box for the
website (to handle authentication I wrote an externauth module that sits
on top of the normal pmwiki authorization schemes by checking for my
authentication first). The bottom of the page is an html footer. I also
have a right column in html (that is generally disabled) and the center
is pmwiki.


The center column file that is included is simply the following:

<div class="gfuwiki">


  if (file_exists("pmwiki.content")) {






where I have renamed pmwiki.php to pmwiki.content.


This worked just fine, but I also use the CleanURL recipe and that works
just fine as well.


I use the monobook skin and have it set up so that only authenticated
users can edit - and the tabs only show up if one is authenticated. A
visitor to my site doesn't see the wiki tabs and wouldn't know that it
was a wiki unless they knew what they were looking for.


Now - all of this said, it is something that evolved - I wanted to keep
the capability to embed other things in my html web page and so I opted
to use pmwiki embedded. This means that I get a javascript menu and give
up a user-editable menu - big deal. I have been so content with PmWiki
that, at this juncture, I think I could have done the whole website with
PmWiki itself. 


But, as it is embedded, I think I will leave it that way and keep my
options open.
