[pmwiki-users] DefaultGroup bug?

PmWiki will try to find the page a visitor requests from the 
?n=Something query string, or from the /Something path in the URL (if 

If no query string is passed, ie the user opens just index.php or 
pmwiki.php, then it will directly return the variable $DefaultPage.

If it is not defined, it will define it as "$DefaultGroup.$DefaultName".

So in your case, you'd better set:

   $DefaultPage = "Home.Home";


For the wiki home page, when the wiki is accessed without ?n=Something 
or in case of pathinfo /Something
