$LinkWikiWords = 0; # disable Wiki Word links  $AsSpacedFunction

        $AsSpacedFunction = 'MyAsSpaced';  $EnablePGCust
Allows/disables per-page and per-group customizations. Can be set to zero in any local customization file to prevent remaining page/group customizations from being loaded.
        $EnablePGCust=0; # turn off per-page/group configs  $GroupPattern
The regular expression pattern used for valid WikiGroup name specifications. Defaults to allowing any group name beginning with an uppercase letter, but can be set to limit the valid group names (see Cookbook:LimitWikiGroups).
        # limit groups to Main, Pm Wiki, and MyGroup
$GroupPattern = '(?:Main|Pm Wiki|MyGroup)';  $NamePattern

$AuthID For sites using user-based authorization, tracks the "reader" or login name. $TimeFmt
The format to use for dates and times, in strftime() format. The default value is '%B %d, %Y at %I:%M %p', which gives dates of the form "September 8, 2005 at 10:57 PM".
        $TimeFmt = '%B %d, %Y'; # dates as "September 8, 2005"$TimeFmt = '%Y-%m-%d';         # dates as "2005-09-08"

$LogoutCookies An array of cookie names to be removed when ?action=logout is invoked. $CookiePrefix
A string prefix to be prepended to cookies set from Pm Wiki scripts. It defaults to '', but can be set to a different value to avoid conflicts with similar-named cookies from other applications, or to allow multiple wikis from the same domain to store separate cookies.
        $CookiePrefix = 'pmwiki_'; # set cookie prefix to 'pmwiki_' $Version
A string representing the release version of Pm Wiki, as in "pmwiki-2.1.40".

$VersionNum A number representing the release version of Pm Wiki, with the major and minor release components padded with zeroes to produce three digits. Thus, release "pmwiki-2.1.40" will have $VersionNum set to 2001040.
