Install fox.php and foxedit.php.
Put a foxedit link on the page, which calls a custom edit form, like:
   {[foxedit form=Group.MyPTVEditForm]}

Create Group.MyPTVEditForm with this content, and then modify it to
your needs:

(:fox editform target={$EditTarget} ptvtarget={$EditTarget} template=0 redirect=1 :)
(:input hidden csum 'page update':)
(:input defaults source={$EditSource} :)
|| ||'''Edit Page: {$EditTarget}'''||
|| Var 1:||(:input text name=$:Var1 size=50:) ||
|| Var 2:||(:input text name=$:Var2 size=50:) ||
|| Var 3:||(:input text name=$:Var3 size=50:) ||
|| Text:||(:input textarea id=text name=$:text  cols=70 rows=10 :) ||
(:if enabled EnableAccessCode:)
|| ||Enter value {$AccessCode} (:input text access size=3 class=inputtext:)
(:input hidden accesscode {$AccessCode}:)  <- Have you entered the code number?||
(:if enabled EnablePostCaptchaRequired:)
|| ||Enter value {$Captcha} (:input captcha class=inputtext:) <- Have you entered the code number?||
|| Author:||(:input text author value='{$Author}' size=30 class=inputtext:) 
(:input submit post "Save":) (:input submit cancel "Cancel":) ||
(:foxend editform:)

This form has edit fields for page text variables Var1, Var2, Var3,
text. Add more and rename as required, corresponding to the
variables on your page. Note the syntax in the form fields for the
PTVs is

The page text needs to be in a PTV called 'text', in order for it to
appear in the textarea form field. Enclose the page text in anchors,
and foxedit uses that as a PTV:

text content

Some more explanations of the fox form:

(:input defaults source={$EditSource} :) will load the variables from
your target page, and not the form page.

{$EditTarget} is your target page, i.e. the page with the foxedit link
and your data, the calling page.

ptvtarget={$EditTarget} - this enables the PTV updating on the target
template=0 - we only update PTVs, so we are not using a template for
adding content.
redirect=1 - when the edit form loads, its page gets opened, even
though the page title is the target page (the calling page). When the
form is submitted, the redirect makes sure the target page is shown.

(:input hidden csum 'page update':) - the value 'page update'  to appear
in RecentChanges pages.

Use the Accesscode or Captcha code lines as you need them, or delete

Hope this helps!
