Hmm, that's funny I have it working on the same server
(and thus same php) with an older version of pmwiki,
but it fails with the latest pmwiki!?  To debug I put
an explicit echo for the specific $_GET variable that
I need in my function and it isn't set.  If you are
not unsetting it, and php is supposedly not (since it
works on the other install), than something really
weird is happening.  For the record, I seem to be
running apache-mod-php 4.3.10 (debian .21),


Never miss a thing.  Make Yahoo your home page.
