These commands are actually in your wiki page [[Site.PageActions]].

On some pages or in a GroupHeader or GroupFooter you can have a (:noaction:) 
command which disables the actions.

If a group contains a page named Group.PageActions, even if it is empty, it 
will be used instead of the page Site.PageActions. Such a page should be 
deleted with the keyword "delete" when saving the page.

If a user doesn't have a read permission for the group Site or for the page 
Site.PageActions, the links will not be displayed.

If you use different skins in different areas of your wiki, some of them may 
not be designed to include the *.PageActions pages.

Lastly, some recipes or skins may use the function SetTmplDisplay() or the 
variable $TmplDisplay['PageActionFmt'] which may disable the page actions.
