[Pmwiki-users] Calling forms from a wiki page

People have asked about the possibility of placing forms in a wiki
page, and there are two answers.
1. Form elements can always be added as local customizations using
custom markup. For example, to add a custom form element to perform a
Google search, one can do
"<form method='get' action='http://www.google.com/search'>
<input type='text' name='q' size='25'></form>";
which makes the [[$Google]] markup string embed a Google search box in
the wiki page.
2. Allowing arbitrary form elements in wiki pages is likely to
require some pretty sophisticated wiki markup. I haven't had a need
for such capabilities myself, but if someone wants to propose some
reasonable wiki markup sequences for handling form elements I could
look into adding it (probably as a local customization). Take a look
