Hi all

This is really getting powerful all the way around.  Something
thrilling is happening at PmWiki--or has it always been this exciting?

As for Ben's comment--you might want to look at
PageVariableExtensions, I think it allows you to set page variables
within a wiki page.  If not I could do a markup for you.  It's a
snap...  :)

Second, the update feature will be powerful.  Will it allow us to set
titles automatically?  I'd like to be able to get titles to work a bit
better.  They seem buggy.  I'd like to be able to update a page title
and have it automatically refresh to show the new title.  Can't seem
to find a way to do that, without opening and resaving the title.
Maybe my approach was wrong, but maybe it's Pmwiki.


PS.  My approach was to set the title=x line and add (:title x:) to
text.  Then WritePage.  But when refresh the page title doesn't show.
