In setting up my wiki I followed the setup instruction which point to an ikiwiki.setup file that contains "verbose => 0".
I hadn't noticed that setting in there, but later when I changed my standard command of:
ikiwiki --setup ikiwiki.setup
ikiwiki --verbose --setup ikiwiki.setup
I was quite surprised that that change didn't have any effect.
So two suggestions to fix this:
- Make command-line arguments override settings in the setup file
This is difficult to do, since reading a setup file replaces values for config items with the values in the setup file. Also, when you say --setup foo, you're asking ikiwiki to set up the wiki using the comnfiguration in file foo. Which is what it does.
- Comment out all settings in the example setup file that are simply setting options to their default values. That way, the file will still be self-documenting, but command-line arguments will at least work for these settings while they remain commented out.
