PmWiki: WikiStructure

TODO: needs updating for 2.0 release

Authors have a range of options to choose from when organising a collection of wiki pages. Used in combination, these give a lot of flexibility.

The most powerful organising principle is the author's choice of page names. When a search returns a list of pages, their names need to be clear enough to guide a visitor to the right place.
A page with text (and images), where the text can contain for instance WikiWords that automatically becomes a link to another WikiPage.
This wiki requires every page to be a member of a group. A group is like a wiki within a wiki; it can have its own presentation look, security controls and navigation aids. With default configuration, WikiWords are only searched inside the current group, and you use either OtherGroup/MyWikiWord or OtherGroup.MyWikiWord to refer to pages in other groups.
A collection of pages, either in the same group or across multiple groups, can be designated as a trail. A visitor can move from stop to stop by clicking on next and previous links.
free link?
A page name that does not follow the WikiWord convention. Use it to avoid creating an artificial or ugly page name, or just because you want to.
