Any chance I can look at your example? I looked at Esther's minima in splitbrains templates but it can't find a dev version that uses the latest build.
Here's what I got:
default.php: $conf['admin_enable'] = '1';
metadata.php: $meta['admin_enable'] = array('onoff');
setting.php: $lang['admin_enable'] = 'Label of this...';
It shows up correctly on config page after switching to my template.
I refer to it in my template as $conf['tpl']['ia']['admin_enable']
When I use 'print_r' to look at $conf, none of the variables show up.
Interestingly enough though, a plugin that I've setup in such a way shows up in $conf and saves to the local.php.
Any additional ideas? TIA...martin -- DokuWiki mailing list - more info at http://wiki.splitbrain.org/wiki:mailinglist
