Page actions are applied to wiki pages, as a query string appended to the URL. Security can be applied to all default actions, and script actions with one exception, but not diag actions, through the use of passwords.

Also documented are all other URL queries.

NOTE: All actions will be disabled if the following is set:

    $EnableActions = 0;

This will initialize PmWiki (along with any configuration/customizations that are being made, e.g. from local/config.php), but won't actually perform any actions. The caller can then call the desired action or other functions as desired. This is available from Version 2.2.0-beta22 on up.

  • column 1 = markup-name (1. parameter of markup() )

  • column 4 = Debug backtrace information for potentially incompatible rules (filename, line number, pattern)
