A slightly different approach is to include CmsMenu in Site.SideBar, either by adding the content directly into the SideBar, or by using markup
(:include Site.PageActions:). This way the skin template file does not need to be altered. ~HansB
- PmWiki now provides
Site.PageActions, which can be modified in the above mentioned way. BenWilson April 11, 2006, at 04:48 PM
Question (13-Nov-2006, RussFink) - can this recipe prevent the arbitrary creation of new pages? Say you've hidden the edit links from me, but I suspect you're running a wiki and not a real web site. I'm going to try to enter a new page name, and see what happens. Will I see the edit window? If not, will I be prompted to enter a password prior to creating the page? Either way, I still have revealed the wikiness of the page. I am trying to prevent that in order to prevent discovery of the system (footprinting, in other words.) What CMS recipe would help me achieve what I'm trying to do?
Update 14-Nov-2006 RussFink - added conjunction with either auth admin or authid. Fixes wonky behavior where if you use admin, you don't get the full menus.
