This is a talk page for improving LayoutVariables.

The (:messages:) page directive displays all messages from all recipes and scripts that generate them (eg Passwords). This can lead to confusion, or a message being lost in a list of other messages

A useful enhancement would be to allow a selection of the messages to be shown, eg by recipe or key

(:messages recipe=UploadForm:)
(:messages key=ThumbList:)

$HTMLPNewline = '<br/>'; in config.php breaks the layout of Site.EditQuickReference, at least in Monospace skin.
I have ignored the br/ on this page with a
(:nolinebreaks:) at the beginning of Site.EditQuickReference (and I will hopefully come here looking for my fix next time I upgrade since this is a core file change).maxnort November 16, 2011, at 08:56 PM

Actually, when you edit a page through the wiki interface, its file is copied from the directory pmwiki/wikilib.d to pmwiki/wiki.d and later has priority: even if you upgrade the core files in wikilib.d, they will not overwrite your own changes. Anyways, the (:nolinebreaks:) directive was added in the EditQuickReference page in version 2.2.27 released about 5 months ago. --Petko November 17, 2011, at 02:54 AM

I really should check for updates more often. I'm on 2.2.25 - and being that this is my dev box, I have developed the bad habit of editing in wikilib.d (probably why I've avoided updates). Well, I know what I'm doing this weekend. Thank you for the information, Sir.maxnort November 17, 2011, at 08:30 AM

11-28-12, update: I did come back here looking for this; new PmWiki installation going online today.
