Following some of the basic concepts of Zettelkasten, one could consider naming new pages with the date in the fashion of: yyyymmdd followed by one keyword, like 20220425-keyword. In this manner, the page-name remains unique. Moreover, a consistent structure to the notes themselves is recommended -- a sample template in this fashion:

tags: ##tag1 ##tag2 ##tag3

Tip: As the single hash '#' is used in the wiki's macros, it is advised to use double hashes '##' for tags.

Having written-up notes with your PmWiki, you can easily search them using the search dialogue; entering tags with their usual prefix'##' or by simply entering a word or a combo of words. Notes themselves can be easily cross-linked to other notes via the '[[GroupName/page]]' format and/or with local or remote html pages links by simply stating the link eg. 'http://...' in the note.
