authors (intermediate)

This page describes the "variables" that are associated with pages. Page variables have the form {$variable}, and can be used in page markup or in certain formatting strings in Pm Wiki. For example, the markup "{$Group}" renders in this page as "Pm Wiki".

Note that these variables do not necessarily exist in the PHP code, because they have to be determined for a specific page. (However, they are usable in Fmt Page Name strings.)

There is also the form {pagename$variable}, which returns the value of the variable for another page. For example, "{MarkupMasterIndex$Title}" displays as "{Markup Master Index$Title}".

The page variables defined for Pm Wiki are:

{$Group} - page's group name, as in "PmWiki"
{$Groupspaced} - spaced group name, as in "Pm Wiki"
{$DefaultGroup} - default group name, as in "Main"
{$SiteGroup} - default group name for e.g. Recent Changes, as in "Site"
{$Name} - page name, as in "PageVariables"
{$Namespaced} - spaced page name, as in "Page Variables"
{$DefaultName} - name of default page, as in "HomePage"
{$FullName} - page's full name, as in "PmWiki.PageVariables"
{$Title} - page title (may differ from Name), as in "Page Variables"
{$Titlespaced} - title/spaced page name, as in "Page Variables"

{$LastModified} - date page was edited, as in "December 29, 2005, at 01:34 AM"
{$LastModifiedBy} - page's last editor, as in "Pm"
{$LastModifiedHost} - IP of page's last editor, as in "24.1.26.255"

{$PageUrl} - page's url, as in "{$PageUrl}"

In addition to the above, there are some page-invariant variables available through this markup:

{$Author} - the name of the person currently interacting with the site, as in ""
{$AuthId} - current authenticated id, as in ""

{$Version} - Pm Wiki version, as in "pmwiki-2.0.13"
{$ScriptUrl} - The url to the pmwiki script
