[pmwiki-users] PAGELIST / Wikiform PTV List Search

Ok, I got a partial solution to what I needed. I managed it using filters
using substr markup like

(:pagelist group=testgroup  $:Var=C{(substr {$Opt1} 1 5)}a*,*O{(substr
{$Opt2} 1 5)}t*,-"":)  that works for me (probably there could be simpler
but that was I did)

The thing is that I filter them  only when certain words appear (specially
at the beginning and at the end of the word) in my ptv and I can get not
listing them when they are empty

But now I have another question, I have another pagelist which looks simpler
(:pagelist group=testgroup  $:Var="{$Opt1},{$Opt2}":)

Opt1 and Opt2 are in Definition list Format and Could have  spaces. I have
no figure it out how not to list $Var when both Opt1 and Opt2 are empty, the
pagelist list all items/entries when they are empty. I tried things like
(:pagelist group=testgroup  $:Var={$Opt1} ,{$Opt2},-"":) but that does not
work, I need using the Quotes because of the spaces and (:pagelist
group=testgroup  $:Var="{$Opt1} ,{$Opt2}",-"":) would not work either

Any Pointers ?
