[pmwiki-users] Setting up other folders [From: Archiving old/obsolete pages]

Hi all.

Your suggestion, Pm, about setting up an archive folder made me wonder
how hard it would be to put all the data files the FAST Data recipe
creates in a "data" folder.  I currently read protect them but would
want admin access to them for fixing/tweaking data as needed.  I would
also want them searchable, though it would be PERFECT if the return
values were the exact parallel pages in the current wiki folder rather
than the ones in the data folder.  Is that possible?  ie:  a hit in
data/Test.SomePage would return a link to wiki.d/Test.SomePage.

Virtually all of my site is created dynamically from
groupheaders/footers and retrieved data.  I can see this being a much
better solution for my purposes to separate data and regular wiki

I'm guessing saving them to the appropriate folder is not much more
difficult than setting the workdir to a different value?  (Reading the
data would be similar).  But how do you browse the pages in a
different folder (not another field) and edit them?  And is it
remotely possible to set the folder that is searched by default to the
data folder and then return links to the original wiki.d folder?
