The main page for Group Headers assumes a certain level of expertise implementing Group headers/footers. Here is how I added a simple footer to my wiki. My wiki has a handful of Groups, with sub-topics. Within a Group, I wanted the first-level topics to have a footer linking to the other first-level topics. The sub-topic pages should have a footer linking to other pages within that sub-topic.
- For a given Group, such as CatsMeow (the name of my boat), I went to the main page,
http://.../pmwiki.php?n=CatsMeow.CatsMeow(approve links) as a convenience for changing the URL to,
...CatsMeow.GroupFooter, allowing me to create the Group Footer page within the PmWiki interface.
- The contents of my GroupFooter look like:
%notetitle% [[CatsMeow]] topics%%\\
- Now every page in the CatsMeow Group will have that footer.
- For the subpages under the main topics, Topic1, Topic2, Topic3, ..., I made up a special page that will be used as the footer for that topic. For Topic1, for example, I used the address bar to create a new page,
...CatsMeow.Topic1Footer to create the page. The contents are arranged similar to the GroupFooter. I am using CamelCase to make the pages look related, but as far as PmWiki is concerned, any page name will do.
%notetitle% [[Topic1]] topics%%\\
- These Topic footers will not show up on their own. They are not special pages to PmWiki. In each Subtopic page, I added the lines,
...so that the custom Footer page is included and the GroupFooter page is not included.
