In your config.php:
$CategoryGroup = 'Main';

In Main.GroupFooter:
(:pagelist link=Main/Dogs:)

The stuff that follows this point might surprise you with how much 
closer PmWiki can get to Tiddlywiki.


I suggest you download and install the EditAttributes recipe like this:

First, copy editattr.php into your cookbook.

In you config.php:
$EditAttrFields = array(
     'title' => array(
         'attribute' => 1,
         'markup' => '(:title $1:)',
         'filter' => 'EditAttrAutofillTitle'
  'tags' => array(
         'attribute' => 1,
         'markup' => '(:tags:$1:)',
         'filter' => 'EditAttrFormatTags'

# Format Tags
function EditAttrFormatTags( $pagename, $fn, &$new ) {
     global $CategoryGroup;

     $EaCleanArray = array('[',']','!',

     $EaMatches = $new['tags'];
     $EaMatchesArray = 

     Foreach($EaMatchesArray as $EaM) {
         $EaM = trim($EaM);

         if($EaM == '')
             $EaFixed .= '';
         elseif(strstr($EaM,'/') === FALSE && strstr($EaM,'.') === FALSE)
             $EaFixed .= '[[!'.$EaM.']], ';
             $EaFixed .= '[['.$EaM.']], ';

     $new['tags'] = substr($EaFixed,0,-2);


Finally, edit Site.EditForm. Just copy and replace:
!!Editing {*$FullName}
<div id='wikiedit'>
(:input e_form:)
<table style="width:100%;">
<tr><td style="text-align:right;">Title:</td><td>(:input 
e_title:)</td><td style="text-align:right;">Tags:</td><td>(:input 
<tr><td colspan="4">(:input e_textarea:)</td></tr>
<tr><td colspan="4">(:input e_savebutton:)(:input 
e_savedraftbutton:)(:input e_saveeditbutton:)(:input 
e_previewbutton:)(:input e_cancelbutton:)</td></tr>
(:input end:)
(:if e_preview:)
!!Preview {*$FullName}
'''$[Page is unsaved]'''
<hr />


Now, all you have to do is fill the Tags box with a comma separated list 
of tags:
Dogs, Friendly Dogs, Dogs with all their Teeth
And you can even link outside your CategoryGroup like this:
Pictures/Dogs, Stories.Dogs, Wolves.That look like Dogs

You might also install the AutoSave and GetRidOfMain recipes for some 
added functionality.
