[pmwiki-users] Odd behaviour - wikicmds div missing at times

Thanks for the information - lots to learn here, and this was very 

My problem was that I had a typo in one of the group view or edit 
categories, thus referring to a non-existent authorization group. This 
has the effect of suppressing the PageActions div under some 
circumstances. Annoyingly, it also makes it impossible to log out - but 
clearing the browser cookies got me around that issue.
