Hi. The developers/users that first needed/wrote this recipe may no longer be 
around on the wiki or on this list. Among us here, there could be people that 
never reviewed/tested/used absolutely all possible recipes from the Cookbook.

There seems to be a non-initialized variable $DefaultPage which I just fixed 
in the page. The code to be added is:

  SDV($DefaultPage, 'Main.HomePage');   # this line was missing
  $pagename = MakePageName($DefaultPage, $pagename);  # this one exists

I tested the first solution, and it seems to work as expected on my wiki.

Please test it and report if it works for you too.


P.S. To avoid other possible problems with other recipes, please add the code 
near the bottom of your config.php.
