[pmwiki-users] Attempting to get pits-0.23.php operational

Thanks for your response Petko

I have been using the PITS recipe for years! It has been very helpful in 
several projects.

At this time I have several volunteer software projects on the same wiki 
field (revolving around a common topic) each of which needs to have its 
own PITS recipe running. Right now the PITS recipe only works with one 
instance per field.

My biggest "problem" is that I am used to Rapid Application Development 
(RAD) development software and am pretty well "up a creek" if I can't 
single step through a program to see what is happening in real time.

If someone has had success implementing pits-0.23.php I would be very 
glad to hear from you.
If there is someway someone can point me to how to figure it it out 
myself, that's probably even better.
