Here is the start of an answer.

1) To set All public pages read onlyin config.php set
= crypt('edit_password');
(See http://pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/PasswordsAdmin#settingsitewidepasswords)<http://pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/PasswordsAdmin#settingsitewidepasswords>

2) Edit the Site.PagesActionPage
using if auth edit (see also
(:if auth edit:) * %item rel=nofollow class=browse accesskey=$[ak_view]%
[[{*$FullName} | $[View] ]] * %item rel=nofollow class=edit
accesskey=$[ak_edit]% [[{*$FullName}?action=edit | $[Edit] ]] * %item
rel=nofollow class=diff accesskey=$[ak_history]% [[{*$FullName}?action=diff
| $[History] ]] * %item rel=nofollow class=upload accesskey=$[ak_attach]%
[[{*$FullName}?action=upload | $[Attach] ]] * %item rel=nofollow
class=backlinks accesskey='$[ak_backlinks]'%
[[{*$Name}?action=search&q=link={*$FullName} | $[Backlinks] ]] (:else:) *
%item rel=nofollow class=login accesskey='$[ak_login]'%
''[-[[{*$FullName}?action=login | $[login] ]]-]'' (:ifend:) (:if enabled
AuthPw:) * %item rel=nofollow class=logout accesskey='$[ak_logout]'%''
[-[[{*$FullName}?action=logout | $[logout] ]]-]'' (:ifend:)

This is used for example at http://hvnzda.org.nz/<http://www.hvnzda.org.nz/>

3) Its easy to get rid of the wikihead (Search/Recent Changes) and Footer by
deleting them from /pub/skins/yourskin/pmwiki.tmpl
by deleting the text between and including <div id='wikihead'> and the
matching </div>
and <div id='wikifoot'> and the matching </div>

Because they are part of the template I don't know of a way of hiding them
unless you are authorised to edit, but...
you can make them wiki pages and thegen use AuthEdit. If you want to do this
et back to me

Hope this helps
Your request is absolutely legitimate too.
