Just to review, to create a catagory link on a PmWiki page, you have enter
the markup [[!CategoryName]] for each category. So to assign a page to
multiple categories, you would enter on the page:

[[!Category1]] [[!Category2]] [[!Category3]]

and so on.

But it sounds like you want a list of all existing categories on certain
pages. If that 's right, you can accomplish that by entering something like
this on those pages:

(:pagelist group=Category list=normal fmt=#title :)

That gives a list of all pages in Category group and simply lists the title
of the pages (fmt=#title). You can change the format, if you like, to list
other info about the page, though I'm not experienced in that area.

If you want such a list on all pages in a group, you can add that
automatically (without entering it on each page) by entering the directive

(:pagelist group=Category list=normal fmt=#title :)

to the Group's GroupFooter or PageFooter page, e.g., to add to all pages in
the Main group, you would enter the directive on either the Main/PageFooter
or Main/GroupFooter (I'm sure of the distinction between those two pages, so

Hope that helps.

I don't know what your destiny will be,
but one thing I do know:
the only ones among you who will be really
happy are those who have sought and found
how to serve.
