[Pmwiki-users] Is it possible to create forms in PmWiki?
Thu Dec 2 11:57:00 CST 2004
I have a PmWiki site running on a private LAN that is completely open to
users. Is there any way to selectively include HTML on some of the pages
without opening all pages to HTML? For instance, I would like to:
1) Create a form that users can fill in. The form action could invoke a
2) Do the equivalent of <!--#include virtual="/cgi-bin/whatever.pl" -->
3) Insert raw HTML on some pages.
In all three cases, the pages should be locked to editing. I know I could
link to straight HTML pages outside of PmWiki, but I would like to keep the
look and feel without having to duplicate style sheets and so on.
The cookbook solutions that I found are not really what I want. Given that
this will probably be used on only one or two pages per Wiki, the HTML
solution seems to be the most flexible.
This sort of feature could also be useful where PmWiki is used to quickly
deploy a read-only website.
Is there any downside to what I am trying to do? Security, particularly
injection of rogue scripts, should not be an issue since only the
administrator would be able to edit such pages.
