Hollow All(especially Hans),

While PmWiki becomes more and more powerful and flexible, it can be used to 
be the site engine of many different kinds of web sites like blogs or forums.

But in those cases a permanent page creator name is very impotent. In the 
other hand, in the wiki logic, creater is less impotent than the modifier.
In fact PmWiki only supply {$LastModifiedBy} and no {$Creater} at all.

I'm not asking a {$Creater} variable, but if PM can take it into 
consideration that would be great. I'm looking for a way to use available 
methods to do the same work. My question is:

If I use Hans's NewPageBoxPlus which can use another page as template, and if
I put a PTV like (:creator: ... :) in the template, how can I 'save' the 
value of the $Author right into the PTV at the same time when a page was 

Wish my poor English is good enough to be understood.
