[pmwiki-users] homepage for users

That's a good idea with the conditional on the main homepage.  I am not
that familiar with the syntax to do that, actually, so if anyone can
show me how to do that, I would appreciate it.  Will php work somehow on
an individual page?  

Uh oh.  You're right about my duplicate login trouble.... It's happening
because of this:
The way that I access this page is through a DNS alias -> http://it/wiki
The actual URL is -> http://cfc-ct-it01/wiki
Pmwiki is using all the links with the "cfc-ct-it01" as the server... so
when I click one, the URL is completely different than how I logged in.
Is there a way to change the wiki configuration so that the links all
use the alias as the base, instead of the actual servername?

Thanks so much, Tegan.  I didn't expect toidentify that second problem
so quickly.

Are you familiar with the syntax for conditional stuff?  You might
have something on Main/HomePage that says, in essence,

If logged in w the rights to view (or edit) Group1.TestPage1
Then (:redirect Group1.HomePage:)
Else if logged in w the rights to view (or edit) Group2.TestPage2
Else ...

Might that work? You could even suppress the standard redirection
messages. OR if there's a problem w having multiple redirections on
one page, then maybe you could do something similar, but under tested
conditions, (:include Group1.HomePage:)

I've experienced something similar -- my hosting setup assumes all
hosted sites have the address syntax http://www.example.com; if one
logs into http://example.com (i.e. without the www), one sees the
behavior you've described -- could that explain it?
