To create personal user (browser) preferences,

  • make a copy of this page somewhere, preferably as Profiles.insert_your_name_here-Preferences
  • edit that page with your new preferred settings,
  • select Set Preferences of this Page on the page containing your newly created settings.
This sets a preference cookie on your browser which tells PmWiki where to find your personal preference settings.

See also Cookbook:UserConfigurations about how to customise the edit form for personal use.

Note that by default, parsing of Site.Preferences is disabled. To make it the default site preference, add

 XLPage('prefs', "Site.Preferences");

to a config file (e.g. local/config.php).

To disable user preferences entirely set $EnablePrefs = 0;
