# Edit Variables

$EnableGUIButtons When set to '1', turns on the graphical buttons in the "Edit Page" form.  # turn on graphical edit buttons $EnableGUIButtons = 1;

$EnablePostAuthorRequired When set to '1', posting of pages requires the author to provide an author name. Otherwise, authors can post without a name.  # require authors to provide a name $EnablePostAuthorRequired = 1;

$EnableDrafts When set to '1', enables the "Save as draft" button and built-in handling of "draft" versions of pages, where: (1) initial "Save as draft" of an existing page ("") saves changes to a new name ("-Draft"), (2) subsequent attempts to edit causes -Draft to be edited, (3) subsequent selections of "Save as draft" cause -Draft to be saved, and (4) pressing "Save" causes -Draft to be posted to , and deleted.  # turn on draft edits $EnableDrafts = 1;

$DraftSuffix The suffix to use for draft versions of pages (default "-Draft"). $DiffKeepDays
The $DiffKeepDays variable sets the minimum length of time that a page's revision history is kept. By default it is set to 3650 days, or a little less than ten years. You can change this value in a customization file to be something smaller, e.g.:  $DiffKeepDays = 30; # keep revisions at least 30 days

Note that a specific page revision isn't removed from the page until the first edit after the time specified by $DiffKeepDays has elapsed. Thus, it's still possible for some pages to have revisions older than $DiffKeepDays -- such revisions will be removed the next time those pages are edited.
$DeleteKeyPattern The pattern used to determine if a page should be deleted. The default is to remove pages that contain only the single word "delete" (and optional spaces).  # change delete word to "remove" $DeleteKeyPattern = "^\\s*remove\\s*$"; # delete any page with no visible text, i.e., empty $DeleteKeyPattern = "^\\s*$";  $EditTemplatesFmt
Name of the page (or an array of names) to be used as the default text for any newly created pages.
        # Use 'Main.NewPageTemplate' as default text of all new pages
$EditTemplatesFmt = 'Main.NewPageTemplate'; # Use 'Template' in the current group for new pages$EditTemplatesFmt = '$Group.Template'; # Use 'Template' in the current group if it exists, otherwise # use 'Main.NewPageTemplate'$EditTemplatesFmt = array('$Group.Template', 'Main.NewPageTemplate');  $DefaultPageTextFmt
The text that should be displayed when browsing non-existent pages. As default Pm Wiki uses the contents of Site.Page Not Found
        $DefaultPageTextFmt = '(:include$[{$SiteGroup}.PageNotFound]:)';  $EditFunctions
This array contains the sequence of functions that are called when a page is edited. It can be customized to provide additional functions to be called as part of the editing process. The standard setting is:
        $EditFunctions = array('EditTemplate', 'RestorePage', 'ReplaceOnSave', 'SaveAttributes', 'PostPage', 'PostRecentChanges', 'PreviewPage');  $ROSPatterns
With this array you can give a pattern as key and a text which should replace it when saving an edited text. See Cookbook:ROSPatterns for examples.
$IsPagePosted Set to a true value if the page is actually saved (e.g., this is used to tell the handlers if they need to update). $PageEditFmt
By default, this is the HTML to be displayed for an edit form.
$PageEditForm Specifies the edit form for ?action=edit. Defaults to '$SiteGroup.'.
$HandleEditFmt Like$HandleBrowseFmt, this specifies the entire output format for ?action=edit for a page.
$EditRedirectFmt The page to which an author is sent after pressing "Save" or "Cancel" from an edit form. Defaults to "$FullName", which sends the author to the page just edited, but can be changed to specify another page.
        # redirect to Main.HomePage
$EditRedirectFmt = 'Main.HomePage'; # redirect to HomePage of current group$EditRedirectFmt = '{\$Group}.HomePage';
