Available wiki recipes

The following pmwiki recipes are installed on OborWiki. Some are already enabled for all wikis; others may be enabled upon request. (Likewise, if you'd like some of the enabled-by-default recipes disabled for your wiki, contact me.)

(If you are interested in a recipe that's available from Cookbook:Cookbook, but not listed here, contact me and I'll consider installing it.)

This recipe is broken somehow, and I don't have the time to troubleshoot it. Sorry.
