Description: I'd like to suggest an abstract able to be set in the local config file for the page actions query string. Specifically those cases when the /Group/Page are used as a query string.

For instance, mod_rewrite changes the url: server/Group/Page to server/pmwiki.php?name=/Group/Page

In that case ?action=edit must be submitted as &action=edit URLs could be rewritten differently, but it would still be useful to create a user alterable format for this input.

PmWiki already knows how to handle it correctly. Look at this site: http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PITS/01264?action=edit is the same as http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki?n=PITS.01264?action=edit and it just works. --Petko September 14, 2011, at 03:36 PM

Additionally, I believe that PmWiki on the default install handles it correctly as you can use http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/index.php?n=PITS.01264&action=any-action-you-want in any link markup you want, but if you want to use the cleanurls recipe, than the problem appears and is specific to the recipe and not PmWiki.
