Hi, Bobby,

I went around on this too for awhile until I happened to figure out  
how this scheme work.

The problem is that even though you set up AuthUser and config.php  
with the @editors group, pmwiki really has no idea what you actually  
mean by that, so you have to set up the attr's for the various  
sections of the wiki

You probably have a GroupAttributes page in the Group you are working  
with (am I guessing it's Main?). The $Group.GroupAttributes page  
attributes override those set in the config.php file. You can either  
get rid of the $Group.GroupAttributes file, or set it's attributes  
with action=attr.
