DokuWiki Note plugin

A plugin for DokuWiki which allows users to easily insert four kinds of notes into the wiki pages.


The plugin has been written from scratch by Olivier Cortéz. After the initial release it has been maintained by Olivier while he integrated several patches provided by the DokuWiki-community. Somewhere around the end of 2008 / start of 2009 Olivier started to became too busy with other (real-life) activities and occupations that active development and support halted. On 2009/06/15 Aurélien Bompard decided, after contacting Olivier Cortéz about it, to (temporarily) take-over maintenance and support for the plugin. On the same date Mischa The Evil opened a GitHub-repository for the plugin to make it a “real” community plugin. On the 16th a re-packaged release is available which “completed” the plugin (doc, license etc.)..


The plugin works with DokuWiki 2006-03-09 upto DokuWiki 2009-02-14.


Currently this plugin has some limitations:

  • Plugin won't work inside numbered lists

  • Plugin won't work inside tables

Download / Installation

  1. Download the latest version of the plugin from A mirror containing the packages can be found at

  2. Installing the plugin:

    • You can either extract the archive into the lib/plugins directory or

    • -Load the admin page and go to Manage Plugins and enter the URL of the plugin under Download and install the new plugin.-

  3. Update the Configuration Settings under the admin page.


When you have it installed, use the following syntax:

  • <note>This is my note! Remember it!!</note>

  • <note important>Warning! You're about to lose your mind!</note>

  • <note tip>The clues are in the images.</note>

  • <note warning>Beware of the dog when you open the door !!</note>

You can use the note keywords important, warning and tip. It is quite easy to add new types of notes if you know a bit of PHP and CSS.


It is regularly reported that the cache needs to be cleaned after installing the plugin before the notes do showup. At least a full page-reload (CTRL-F5) is required.
