$EnableGUIButtons
When set to '1', turns on the graphical buttons in the "Edit Page" form.


        # turn on graphical edit buttons
        $EnableGUIButtons = 1;

 

$EnablePostAuthorRequired
When set to '1', posting of pages requires the author to provide an author name.  Otherwise, authors can post without a name.


        # require authors to provide a name
        $EnablePostAuthorRequired = 1;

 

$EnableDrafts
When set to '1', enables the "Save as draft" button and built-in handling of "draft" versions of pages, where: (1) initial "Save as draft" of an existing page ("PageName") saves changes to a new name ("PageName-Draft"), (2) subsequent attempts to edit PageName causes PageName-Draft to be edited, (3) subsequent selections of "Save as draft" cause PageName-Draft to be saved, and (4) pressing "Save" causes PageName-Draft to be posted to PageName, and deleted.


        # turn on draft edits
        $EnableDrafts = 1;

 

$DraftSuffix
The suffix to use for draft versions of pages (default "-Draft").

 

$DiffKeepDays
The $DiffKeepDays variable sets the minimum length of time that a page's revision history is kept. By default it is set to 3650 days, or a little less than ten years. You can change this value in a customization file to be something smaller, e.g.:


        $DiffKeepDays = 30; # keep revisions at least 30 days

Note that a specific page revision isn't removed from the page until the first edit after the time specified by $DiffKeepDays has elapsed. Thus, it's still possible for some pages to have revisions older than $DiffKeepDays -- such revisions will be removed the next time those pages are edited.

 

$DeleteKeyPattern
The pattern used to determine if a page should be deleted.  The default is to remove pages that contain only the single word "delete" (and optional spaces).


        # change delete word to "remove"
        $DeleteKeyPattern = "^\\s*remove\\s*$";
        # delete any page with no visible text, i.e., empty
        $DeleteKeyPattern = "^\\s*$";

 

$EditTemplatesFmt
Name of the page (or an array of names) to be used as the default text for any newly created pages.


        # Use 'Main.NewPageTemplate' as default text of all new pages $EditTemplatesFmt = 'Main.NewPageTemplate'; # Use 'Template' in the current group for new pages $EditTemplatesFmt = '$Group.Template'; # Use 'Template' in the current group if it exists, otherwise # use 'Main.NewPageTemplate' $EditTemplatesFmt = array('$Group.Template', 'Main.NewPageTemplate');

 

$DefaultPageTextFmt
The text that should be displayed when browsing non-existent pages. As default PmWiki uses the contents of Site.PageNotFound


        $DefaultPageTextFmt = '(:include $[{$SiteGroup}.PageNotFound]:)';

 

$EditFunctions
This array contains the sequence of functions that are called when a page is edited.  It can be customized to provide additional functions to be called as part of the editing process.  The standard setting is:


        $EditFunctions = array('EditTemplate', 'RestorePage', 'ReplaceOnSave', 'SaveAttributes', 'PostPage', 'PostRecentChanges', 'PreviewPage');

 

$ROSPatterns
With this array you can give a pattern as key and a text which should replace it when saving an edited text.  See Cookbook:ROSPatterns for examples.

 

$IsPagePosted
Set to a true value if the page is actually saved (e.g., this is used to tell the RecentChanges handlers if they need to update).

 

$PageEditFmt
By default, this is the HTML to be displayed for an edit form.

 

$PageEditForm
Specifies the edit form for ?action=edit.  Defaults to '56.EditForm'.

 

$HandleEditFmt
Like $HandleBrowseFmt, this specifies the entire output format for ?action=edit for a page.

 

$EditRedirectFmt
The page to which an author is sent after pressing "Save" or "Cancel" from an edit form.  Defaults to "$FullName", which sends the author to the page just edited, but can be changed to specify another page.


        # redirect to Main.HomePage $EditRedirectFmt = 'Main.HomePage'; # redirect to HomePage of current group $EditRedirectFmt = '{$Group}.HomePage';
