There are a couple of pages on PmWiki around PmForm. The main one is 
http://www.pmwiki.org/pmform/, and this has links to a few examples. I 
know I missed this when I started, so just pointing it out.

That is possible with PmForm -- you should need to goto the edit page. 
Are you able to post an example of what you are doing, or a URL? When 
you define the $PmForm you need to specify the 'saveto' parameter.

The easiest way is to have the pmform directive as part of the page 
group header. So with the PmForm variables forming the content of the 
page, the header now uses those variables to pre-populate the form. So 
the group header would be:
(:pmform my-form:)
