[pmwiki-users] BlogIt configuration -- entries only visible if logged in

I'm trying to set up a BlogIt blog, and while I can get it to work for
myself as the admin, the posts are not visible to anybody else (or
myself, when logged-out).

Additionally, the "RecentlyWritten" section is always blank, whether
logged-in, or not

I tried the suggestion of adding " $EnableUndefinedTemplateVars = 1; "
(from http://groups.google.com/group/pmwiki-users/browse_thread/thread/48add186e8aec239/ab1a85097e2e8ffa?lnk=gst&q=blogit#
) but that made no difference.

The BlogIt admin-panel for published entries allows me to see my two
published [hopefully, see note below on status confusion] entries, and
I can navigate there to view the entries. But once I log-out, the
entry is invisible.

I'm using pmwiki-2.2.17, BlogIt 1.5.1, AuthUser, and some other recipes.

I've gone over the configuration steps several times, and I believe I
am setting up .config in the correct order (define roles and
passwords; include authuser; BlogIt configuration; include BlogIt)

I'm a little confused by the authorizations and terminology on the
BlogIt cookbook page... the default AuthUser example is for two users,
I want only one (myself).
Additionally, I'm confused by the differing terminology... at some
points, "blog" appears to refer to an individual post/page... at other
times, it refers to a group of posts belonging to a person.

Although "blogid" is required for the main blog page, I can't find
this defined anywhere; I'm assuming that "blog1" is the default id for
a single blog.

Does a non-logged in reader need to have view permissions created?
This is confusing, since the recipe page says "Most blogs are not
public". I do want my blog to be public; but restrict administration
to myself.

"Publish" and "Published" are used at different times to refer to an
post status. Since "Publish" is a verb, I would think this is the
action required to move a post from "Draft" to "Published" (and not a
status itself). So I'm not entirely sure I've actually changed the
entry from draft to published.

However, I do have distinct entires appearing under the "Published"
and "Draft" pages. Also slightly confused by the word "Publish"
appearing under "Action" on the "Published page"... this suggests to
me that they are NOT published....

Dave -- if you're available, I have created a temporary login for you,
that I can send privately.

The blog itself is available @ http://www.bestandroidresources.com/Bar
