The first example, your $pagename variable is not yet defined. You can help  
PmWiki define it by adding this line near the end of config.php, and before  
your line:

  $pagename = ResolvePageName($pagename);

However, this should be done as late as possible in config.php, notably  
after defining $DefaultGroup, $DefaultPage and $DefaultName, and after  
anything related to passwords (authuser, $DefaultPasswords). When you  
request a page text variable, the full page and the GroupAttributes page are  
read according to known permissions, and some permissions are cached -- if  
you do this too early, PmWiki may cache the wrong permissions.

See the section "Order of the commands in config.php" :
