 It would be nice for the wiki admin to be able to set up global variables.  This could be either in the properties file, or in a page that is read prior to each page display.

You sort of can already.  Any property that starts with "jspwiki." can be displayed on a wiki page.  E.g. [[{$jspwiki.pageProvider}] ==> [{$jspwiki.pageProvider}]

You can't! When I define a variable jspwiki.somename and assign a value to it, I may read the value on the same page but on other pages this variable is simply not defined.

Yes, you can - you just need to define it in jspwiki.properties...  That's why you need to be an admin.

That's great, but if you wanted the variable to be a portion of a link, this doesn't seem to work.  Any workarounds?
