Hi. Even your automatic pagelist/search links don't work.

This may happen if you add a new recipe, or if you modify the order of 
inclusion of recipes in config.php.

Now, the usual order of inclusion in config.php for the recipes to work is :

1. First declare the PageStore object (or include() a recipe that declares it; 
this may be alternative PageStore class like SQLite, CompressedPageStore, 

2. Second, call your translations with XLPage(),

3. Then include() all other recipes.

Try to change the order of things in your config.php; if it still doesn't 
work, then it may be caused by a recipe.

You can find the "faulty" recipe. The fact is that PmWiki with no recipes work 
just fine with such links. If you disable your recipes one by one, you will 
come to a point where your "Matemáticas" links work. 

If you really need to use it, place it at the end of config.php and try again. 
If it still breaks the links, write to the author.

Hope that helps,
