At least in the PmWiki default, category links already display 

as 'normal' links, even if the corresponding page doesn't exist.

If that's not happening on your system, the a default must have

been changed somewhere.



I have finally found what was preventing my Category Links to not render
correctly. It is the Mediacat-2.0 recipe.


I have noticed that the default html for category links looks like this:


<p><a class='categorylink'


While with Mediacat-2.0.php enabled, it looks like this:


<div class='category'> Categories: <a class='createlinktext'


Which explains why the category link texts render as if the pages did
not exist... 


I would like to continue using the mediacat-2.0 recipe but render the
category links correctly. Can the recipe be modified to avoid this
problem? I wouldn't know where to start.


However, the answer to your last question is 'yes':  The

variable defines how category links are displayed -- it simply

uses the same format as the other variables such as $LinkPageCreateFmt,

$LinkPageExistsFmt, etc.




Could $LinkCategoryFmt be able to solve the above problem? I have tried
to find documentation on it without luck. Could you explain it a little


Thanks a lot!
