Peter, thanks for your quick anwer!

I see the $EditFunctions array is a good place to hook in. I assume  
you are suggesting to write an own recipe for this, right? I am aware  
of the $page['passwdread'] variable and I have checked the file you  
suggested, but I am definitely not able to strip out the code pieces I  
need from that file or to code an own recipe.

I have had a look at the cookbook recipe called "EditTitle" before ( http://pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/EditTitle 
  ) to take that as a basis but I figured out that I am not capable of  
doing this...

This would be my first recipe, but I need way more code ... or someone  
to do it for me .-)
