DokuWiki plugins


Article from Issue 82/2007

DokuWiki is a useful wiki system already, but you can take its functionality to a whole new level using some of the available plugins.

DokuWiki is an easy-to-use, open source wiki with an impressive feature set. In this article, I will show you how to turbo-charge DokuWiki with a few useful plugins, including gCalendar, Task, DataBase, and Blog.

Of the two ways to install plugins in DokuWiki, the easiest is to use Doku-Wiki’s plugin manager in the Administration section. First, log in to DokuWiki as administrator, click the Admin button at the bottom of the page, and click on the Manage Plugins link. Enter the link to a plugin package in the URL field and press the Download button to install the specified plugin. The plugin manager requires write access to DokuWiki’s lib/plugins directory, so it might not work on your particular DokuWiki installation.
