The default settings allow guests to have access to the toolbars and to the link and image tools. However, guests cannot upload, unless open_upload is set to true. Setting open_upload to true could be used to implement a completely open wiki, where anyone can edit and upload.


If “Display Toolbar to Guests” is set to false, guests are presented with a toolbar consisting of two items, About and Source.


If the toolbar is allowed and “Guests can Upload” is false, then visitors will not be able to upload files to the server by means of the image and link tools. However, they will still be able to view the contents of your data/media directories. See also guest_toolbar


The file browser is acl-compliant, but the administrator can turn off acl by changing this option to 'none'


Normally, the file browser opens in the the namespace of the page being edited or in the directory immediately above it, if the user has write/create permission in that directory. But if Open File Browsing is set to true, the user will be able to access the entire directory hierarchy; however, ACL permissions still will apply, unless they have been turned off. That means that the user will be able to read the contents of all directories for which he has Read permission but will not be able to upload to those directories for which he does not have upload permission. In the case of administrators, the browser will always open in the root directory.


This option governs access to the 'DW Edit' button. There are three options: 'all', which gives access to all users; 'admin', which restricts access to administrators; and 'none', which hides the button from all users.


This governs how Dokuwiki smileys appear in the editor window. At the initial insertion, they appear as text but after the first save they appear as images. Setting this option to true will cause Dokuwiki smileys always to show up as text in the editing window. They will of course still appear as images in the browser.


If true, a copy of the current state of the editing window will be saved to a meta file in the meta directory, with the same name as the document being edited but with a .ckgedit extension.


If set to 'y', a folder creation button will appear at the bottom of the fle browser. Folder cannot be created by guests.


A comma separated list of files and namespace where the Dokuwiki editor is automatically loaded instead of the FCKeditor. The code looks only for partial matches. So if you have “jack”, it will find “blackjack” and “jack_pine”.


The filebrowser has been set up with a loose intepretation of the permission to delete files from a folder. By default it allows users with upload permission in a folder to delete files from that folder. This is not consistent with Dokuwiki's ACL rules which require delete permission. When this option is set to true deletes are consistent with the Dokuwiki ACLs.


If logins are case insensitive, that is you can login as both USER and user, set this to true.


For Windows Servers (Vista and Later). This setting makes it possible to access data\media through ckgedit\fckeditor>\userfiles, if links to media and file have been successfully created in userfiles. This option is helpful in some cases where the savedir has been moved.

Disable automatic creation of symbolic links in fckg/userfiles. This setting applies to installations, where fckgLite attempts to create symlinks.


This option controls the language direction in the CKEditor. There are three opitons: (1) 'nocheck', which in effect does nothing and is essentially the same as 'ltr'; (2) 'dokuwiki', which changes the language direction to the direction set by Dokuwiki, based on the current language selection; (3) 'ltr', which sets left-to-right, and (4) 'rtl', which enables right-to-left. It is possible, with these options, to have your browser set to one direction and the FCKeditor to another.


When set to “on” (default) the SCAYT spell checker is active. When set to “off” the standard “Spellerpages” checker is used. SCAYT checks as you type, Spellerpages checks only when the spell-check toolbar button is clicked.


When set to “on” the SCAYT spell checker is immediately active when the editing window is opened. When set to “off”, you have to click on the spell-check toolbar button and select “enable SCAYT” to make SCAYT active.


The default language is American English.
