[pmwiki-users] Getting pages created by other software to appear in category lists

Patrick, thanks for your reply.

As an experiment, I simply used the Linux "touch" command on both 
wiki.d/.lastmod and my synthetic wiki page. I'm afraid that didn't work 
- the category page still doesn't see the synthetic page.

Any other thoughts?
