[pmwiki-users] How to tag pages like categories, then do pagelist of everything tagged with a given page (without using links)

In short, yes, I believe that would be the sort of thing I am  
interested in. However having them appear on the page is somewhat  
desirable for me. The important thing is being able to specify which  
links show up in a pagelist link=... and which do not. In my system,  
every page is considered a category. I place a link to page B at the  
top of page A and a link to page A automatically shows up at the  
bottom of page B. This system works great for determining related  
texts, but it is limiting in that links are now used solely for  
tagging pages. I cannot add a link to another page without tagging it  
as a category. It would be nice to be able to chose to have a list of  
links act as categorical tags and the rest act as normal links.

Thanks for the reply,
