The idea of Tagger is an extension of the idea of Categories, so
one needs to understand how Categories work before one can understand
how Tagger works. Categories gives one special markup which creates a
link to the given page in the Category group, which itself needs to be
set up to display the pages that link to it.
What Tagger gives one is *multiple* category groups, each one of which
needs to be set up like one would set up a standard PmWiki Category
I use this extensively in my wiki, for example with my pages on books.
For example take the page about a book I read recently, "An Assembly
Such as This".
I have tagger groups for Author, Genre, Series and Status.
$TaggerGroups['Author'] = 'Reviews-Book-Author';
$TaggerGroups['Genre'] = 'Reviews-Genre';
$TaggerGroups['Series'] = 'Reviews-Series';
$TaggerGroups['Status'] = 'Reviews-Book-Status';
Author: Pamela Aidan
Genre: Historical, Romance
Series: Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman
This gives me different "category groups" for different kinds of
information, so that I can look at the books by author, by genre, by
series, and by status (whether I own the book or whether I am just
For example, the "Author: Pamela Aidan" will give me a link to
[[Reviews-Book-Author/PamelaAidan]] without me having to type
in the link code. This also has the advantage that I can use the
"Author: Pamela Aidan" as a page-text-variable in pagelists or display

By looking at the Tags/Dog page, if the Tags group has been set up
correctly as a "category" group.

By setting up the Tags group to (a) auto-create pages and (b) setting up
the Tags/Tags page to list all pages in the Tags group.

For listing all pages that link to them.

The PageVariables listed in the recipe are used in two ways:
a) in pagelists
b) in display templates
