I just read Patrick's email about the server being down. I have sent two 
other messages and will delete if they ever hit this newsgroup. I was 
hoping to get this email in before the weekend while traffic is normal. 

I am new to php and pmwiki. Having said that I have taken the
'VisitorsLogging' recipe and create a new recipe called
'VisitorsLoggingDB'. The new recipe persist all of the data to a
database. This is for my own use and not sure if other people would want
to use it. Anyway, my question is: How do I pass the defined vars in the
config.php so they are usable in the recipe?

All works as designed. Now I want to be able to pass some configured
vars from the config to the VisitorsLoggingDB recipe. Problem is that
when I step thru the code using a debugger I do not see these vars
available for the recipe.

Example: I define this is my config: Beginner Question...

## - ( VisitorsLogging \DB)
      $VisitorsLoggingDBDatabase = 'visitors_log';
      $VisitorsLoggingDBServer   = 'localhost:3306';
      $VisitorsLoggingDBUserid   = 'DBUserid';
      $VisitorsLoggingDBPassword = 'DBPassword';
      $VisitorsLoggingDBHome     = 'weconsultants.phpnet.us';

In the recipe I do the following to make sure the vars have the value

      SDV($VisitorsLoggingDBDatabase, ' ');
      SDV($VisitorsLoggingDBServer, ' ');
      SDV($VisitorsLoggingDBUserid, ' ');
      SDV($VisitorsLoggingDBPassword, ' ');
      SDV($VisitorsLoggingDBHome, ' ');

All are evaluated to be ' ';  What do I have to do to pass the defined
vars and their  value to the recipe from the config?

Thanks in Advance...
