Subject: [pmwiki-users] Using pmwiki on freeweb7.com


I am trying to configure PmWiki on a free host www.freeweb7.com. Only
certain file extensions are allowed - so that the default page file naming
convention 'Group.FullName' will not work.

I've found a workaround based on recipe
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/PerGroupSubDirectories, adding the
following lines to my local/config.php

$WikiDir = new PageStore('$WorkDir/$FullName.txt');
$WikiLibDirs = array( &$WikiDir,
      new PageStore('$FarmD/wikilib.d/$FullName'));

Now pages can be stored because they have the extension .txt.

The problem now is that search and pagelists do not work. How do I configure
PmWiki to let it know that pages now have .txt extension.

Thanks in advance.

I moved to http://www.profusehost.net/, they actually provide a bit more -
still free and pmwiki ran straight out of the box
