Commonly Installed Cookbooks


APPENDIX

Enable Uploads

  1. Create an uploads dir under wherever pmwiki.php found. Note lower case.
  2. Make required changes to config.php
# Uploads Cfg
$DefaultPasswords['upload'] = pmcrypt('MySitePW');
$EnableUpload = 1;
$UploadPermAdd = 0;
$UploadPrefixFmt = ''; #Cfg for site-wide uploads
$UploadMaxSize = 1000000; # Upload Max File Size: 1mb=1000000, 25mb=25000000 etc.

# To find path use PHP Variable (pi.php): _SERVER["APPL_PHYSICAL_PATH"]
# Ex: D:\home\oracledba.help\wwwroot\
# Then from that:
#$UploadDir = "D:\home\oracledba.help\wwwroot\app\mp3\uploads";
#$UploadUrlFmt = "http://oracledba.help/mp3/uploads";

Note: Ensure your PHP installation allows uploads. The php.ini file needs file_uploads = On.

Custom Changes: <Hn> Values

Custom HTML <Hn> changes from the base install.

  • Get a color swatch for site.
    Ex: https://coolors.co
  • Edit /var/www/html/oradocs/pub/skins/pmwiki/pmwiki.css as shown:
#h1, h2, h3, h6 { font-weight:normal; }

h1 { font-size:2em;    font-weight:bold; color:#0d0221;}
h2 { font-size:1.5em;  font-weight:bold; color:#0f084b;}
h3 { font-size:1.15em; font-weight:bold; color:#26408B;}
h4 { font-size:.85em;  font-weight:bold; color:#a6cfd5;}
Set the color: values to match your swatch.
  • Edit /var/www/html/oradocs/pub/skins/pmwiki/pmwiki.tmpl
Change this line:
<h1 class='pagetitle'>{$Title}</h1></div>

to this:
<h1>{$Title}</h1></div>
This ensures page title uses your <Hn> swatch value.
