Is it possible to prevent users from creating new WikiGroups?


Yes. Essentially, you just set PmWiki's $GroupNamePattern variable to only accept the group names you want to define. For example, to limit pages to the "PmWiki", "Main", "Profiles", and "Example" groups, add the following to local/config.php:

   $GroupNamePattern = '(?:PmWiki|Main|Profiles|Example)';

With this setting, only the listed groups will be considered valid WikiGroups. You can add more groups to the list by placing additional group names separated by vertical braces (|).
