A WYSIWYG editor for Dokuwiki

fckgLite is a Javascript implementation of the FCKeditor. It saves its files as DokuWiki markup and supports as wide a range of Dokuwiki syntax as is compatible with the FCKeditor, which is almost the complete syntax with a few minor exceptions. It is widely used and well-supported.


An implementation of fckgLite which upgrades from FCKEditor to CKEditor. For more see:

This plugin is more current than fckgLite.


This plugin keeps track of page, geo-location, browser, operating system, and IP accesses. Quickstats is set up to work right out of the box in its initial installation. It does not use a database back-end and because of this may not be usable for high-volume sites.
Its results can be viewed from within Dokuwiki pages, using the quickstats syntax set. But, in addition, it comes with an administration panel capable of detailed queries. For complete information, see its plugin page at


epub is a plugin for creating EBooks from Dokuwiki pages; they are read in standard ebook readers. EPUB is an open specification for digital books based on XML, CSS, and XHTML; EPUB files can be read on portable e-ink devices, mobile phones, and desktop computers.

Unlike pdf files which have a standardized output, epub output is e-reader dependent, much like web pages, to which they are directly related. An epub page is XHTML with CSS styling. Ebooks can be collected in an e-reader's library of e-books and consulted off-line, making them always available.

There are two versions for download:

  1. For current versions of Dowkuwiki (2012-01-25 and later):
  2. For earlier versions see:

htmlOKay is a plugin for DokuWiki that enables administrators to assign selective permissions to users and groups for the use of HTML on DokuWiki pages. This replaces DokuWiki's native system for HTML use, whereby either all users or no users have access to HTML in their pages. See the htmlOkay wiki for a description of the plugin and examples of its use.


Dwcommits is a Dokuwiki plugin that creates searchable databases of git/gitHub repositories with facilities for updating both the gits and the databases and displaying the results of queries made against the databases. It consists of both an adminstation plugin and a syntax plugin. Queries can be made in the administartion module but can be given more permanent form in the wiki pages through the use of the syntax plugin. The syntax plugin can be configured so that it automatically updates whenever the database is updated in the adminstation panel.

There is a sample page on this site: :git:dokuwiki.

  • The most up-to-date distributions will be found on gitHub.


Credits is a small but feature-rich plugin for DokuWiki that creates a list of the plugins on a DokuWiki site, giving names, dates, and descriptions. See the credits page for a full an illustration.


This plugin has a toolbar icon which pops up a window with which you design a box that can hold both text and images. You can select border styles and colors, font, text color and box color, the width of the box in percentages, and the position of the box on the page.

This plugin will do a search and replace on up to four strings set in the Configuration Manager. It works transparently in the background. When the user opens the file in the editor, the new string is in place. When the file is saved the replacement becomes permanent.


A small Dokuwiki plugin for converting text to serif font, using a convenient simple syntax:

  • $$text$$
  • $<n>$text$$

A small render plugin that accepts the final question mark at the end of an internal link and keeps it for the link's name. Normally a question mark that is not followed by url parameters is dropped, as in start?. With this plugin, the final question mark is retained and the link's name will also be start?.


This small plugin prevents anyone except registered users from accessing the sitemap:


dwedit gives direct access to the native Dokuwiki editor for users of ckgedit. For this purpose it adds an new icon to the right-hand toolbar of the dokuwiki template. It was orignally written by Kamil Demecki for use with fckg (fckgLite) and is included on the fckg plugin page. It loads the whole page into the editor. if you want section editing then you still have to switch over to the Douwiki edtior from within the ckgedit editing interface.

This implementation includes a modified icon based on the Dokuwiki template icon and adds a check to make sure that ckgedit is in use.

download: dwedit


The functionality of this plugin, placing a captcha on the login screen, is now handled by the captcha plugin


This plugin enables the users to insert both fixed and updatable snippets into their pages. If a snippet is marked for being updated, whenever the snippet changes, the changes will be reflected in all the pages where it has been inserted.

Using Firefox, it is possible to copy an RStudio page and paste it into ckgedit's editing window, and it can then be saved as a Dokluwiki file. In order to copy the RStudio code blocks without error, it is necessary to remove any internal formatting that occurs inside the RStudio code blocks. This is done by clicking the ckgedit's select-all tool and then clicking the unformat tool. The page and its diagrams will then save correctly. See the following video:

Howewever, the RStudio code will not have highlighting. That is the purpose of this plugin. Before saving, at the top of the RStudio page, enter the following macro: ~~R_STUDIO~~. After the page is saved consider removing the macro to prevent unnecessary processing. This plugin also fixes a code block copy error where ckgedit begins a block with <code> but ends it with </file>.


You can copy this links and use the dokuwiki extension manager's manual install tab, or else install the plugin manually.

ckgedit and fckgLite Examples

Examples of using plugins and features of fckgLite and ckgedit: examples

XML_Pullparser and eXcavator

XML_PullParser moves the API of the PHP XML facility from an event-based model to a token-based model. Instead of processing data as it is passed from the parser to callbacks, a script using PullParser requests tokens. Tokens are arrays representing XML structures, which become available in the order in which they appear in the document being parsed. Methods are provided both to get tokens and to extract their data. eXcavator is an XML query processing class that sits on top of XML_PullParser. Its aim is to provide PHP developers with a facility for integrating XML queries into both command line and web applications. Queries are constructed using a small query language that will not be totally unfamiliar to progammers or users familar with XPath and XQuery. It returns query results in several formats suitable for both text and html and can integrate text and query results in user-defined templates for virtually any type of output.
