There are several mailing lists available for PmWiki

[ pmwiki-users ]
This is a great resource where a very helpful group of people will answer questions and discuss PmWiki development. As of 2016, traffic is around 20-40 messages a month.

If you ask a question on the list and it doesn’t get answered, don’t feel let down. Justask it again. It probably slipped by unnoticed.Archives are available from:


http://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.web.wiki.pmwiki.user (searchable

http://groups.google.com/group/pmwiki-users (searchable, but disconnected from main list in 2012.04)


[ pmwiki-users-de ]
A mailing list for german-speaking users of PmWiki. Archived at


[ pmwiki-users-es ]
Lista de usuarios PmWiki en Español.
[ pmwiki-users-fr ]
A mailing list for french-speaking users of PmWiki.
[ pmwiki-devel ]
This list was created to lower the traffic on pmwiki-users, it focuses on discussions surrounding code development for PmWiki (both core and recipe development).

Archives are available from:

[ pmwiki-announce ]
Announcements of new version releases and urgent information, about 1-2 messages per month. If you use PmWiki in a production environment, this low-volume list is highly recommended. The archive is at:



  • If you reply to a digest message, please remove the messages irrelevant to your reply before sending it back to the list.
    • It’s also helpful to change "Re: pmwiki-users Digest, Vol […]" to "Re: [the original subject]" because some mail programs determine threads based on the subject.
  • If you address a reply to a single list member, please take the [pmwiki-users] off the subject line, or it’s possible for your message to get lost in the mailing list traffic. Many people filter list traffic to a separate mailbox.
  • If you ask a question, you should disable "digest" mode, this way you’ll receive the replies as soon as people post them, and you could follow-up. In digest mode you might receive the replies a week or two later.

Changing mail list settings

Here are some tips regarding changing the mailing list settings:

  • Logging in…
    • First go to http://www.pmichaud.com/mailman/listinfo/pmwiki-users and enter your e-mail address in the field at the bottom of the page, to the left of the button Unsubscribe or edit options
    • Next you need to enter your password. As you’ve probably forgotten this, use the button Remind at the bottom of the page to get a new password.
    • Finally enter the password you should get momentarily via e-mail.
  • You can directly go to the options web page through a URI such as the following:

http://host.pmichaud.com/mailman/options/pmwiki-users/<user>%40<domain>where<user>is everything before thein an e-mail address, and<domain>is everything after ( For those who wonder, the%40in the URI just stands for ‘‘.

Newsgroups (NNTP)

You may be interested, that the lists are also accessible as newsgroups.

The NNTP server is:

  • news.gmane.org [1]

The groups are:

  • gmane.comp.web.wiki.pmwiki.user
