Wiki pages are dynamic php generated pages. To include time and dates
use Markup Expression {(ftime..)} (PmWiki 2.2.beta) See

For security reasons you don't want a custom markup allowing insertion
of arbitrary php code in the page content.

You can use MarkupExpressios inside the (:pagelist ... :) directive.
But I am not sure what you try to achieve regards the links.
Please read up about various link markup formats.

you can just use  [[This is My Page Name]] and it will appear as you
written and point to page 'ThisIsMyPageName' in the current group.
