[pmwiki-users] a read-only wiki

All the info you need should be in http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/AuthUser 

If you are defining users in config.php, make sure you include the  
authuser.php script after the user configurations.

Just create a group of editors and another group of administrators (or  
use the built-in admin if you'll never want to share that power). Set  
your default read permissions to @nopass and your default edit  
attribute and upload permissions to your editors group (e.g.  
@Editors). For the site group end the URL with "? 
n=Site.GroupAttributes?action=attr" to set the group attributes for  
the Site group so that only the administrator(s) can edit in that  
group. That should do it. If it doesn't, be specific about what isn't  

Hope that helps,
