Patrick, I happen to disagree. There are problems with the recipe orders. This
is my advice for config.php, based on a lot of experience:
1. If there is a Per-Group Sub-directory setting, or a similar PageStore
mechanism, it must to be set before most other scripts or recipes, especially
before authuser.php. Otherwise, the recipes may search for the files at a
wrong place, and when you change some configuration, it may not be detected.
2. UTF-8, (include(scripts/xlpage-utf-8.php);) must be set before any call to
ResolvePageName(), which may be called by some recipe. Or else, for other
languages than English (accented characters, other alphabets) it happens that
PmWiki does not see the files.
3. Internationalisations (calls to XLPage()) must come *after* UTF-8 was set.
Even if the xl-page contains the utf-8 locale.
4. Then, any other *core script* or recipe, and probably authuser.php,
userauth2.php before all other.
I have added these notes at ,  and  because it took me an enormous
amount of time and headaches to discover how to fix it.
