[pmwiki-users] ptv and forms

Currently PmWiki searches and pagelists don't allow the setting of a 
$:PageTextVariable in a separate form field: it only accepts them if 
written in the (:pagelist $:PTV=2:) markup, or as a part of the "q" 
request parameter.

I've made a change that should allow you to use $:PTVs in individual 
form fields. For example, you can search for $:Audience=*author* in 


Please test the latest scripts/pagelist.php from Subversion and report 
if it works for you.


Using PageVariables like $Name as a form field name is still not 
supported (and will probably not be).


P.S. When you write:

    (:input form "http://labo.nonmarchand.org/pmwiki/" method:)

instead of "method" you should use "POST" or "GET" (or nothing).
