This page is manly for the maintainer of this wiki, but can overall contain some useful informations.
To purge the cache version of a page, add
&purge=true to the URL.
Excluded directories from a Dokuwiki arborescence (as q37.info/download) are represented as missing pages. To fix these, simply create a (even empty, because this page will never be displayed)
<missing directory>.txt page in the
data/page/<subdirectories>/ directory of the Dokuwiki installation (for example
blog.txt, for the q37.info/blog/ page). Unfortunately, this works only for the directory page itself, not for the subdirectories/subpages.
See dedicated page.
Some rules I follow about writing content for this Wiki, and which give indications on some DokuWiki behaviors :
home; DokuWiki will append it if needed,
/; DokuWiki will remove it if needed,
[[.:<page_name>:|Moved]]to the page without a ending
An internal link may be point incorrectly to a page (i.e. adding a tailing
/home when the effective link has not this tailing
/home). This occurs when the page containing the link is created before the pointed page. Once this latter page is created, you have to modify the page with the link. And this means really modifying the page ; inserting a character and then removing it, for example, isn't enough, even if the link seems to be correct in the preview.
There are some file icons missing for
<file> tags, for example, for the XSL files. The missing icons had to be put at
/usr/share/dokuwiki/lib/images/fileicons. For XSL files, you can simply launch (in the given directory)
ln -s xml.png xsl.png, so code identified as XSL will have an XML icon. You have to touch a configuration file in order for the new icon to be taken account (https://www.dokuwiki.org/mime#default_mime_types).
File extensions defined as XML :
Some plug-ins assumes that the dokuwiki
data directory is placed under
/usr/share/dokuwiki, but, at least when installed using the Debian packages, this directory is under
/var/lib/dokuwiki, so this plug-ins could not work properly.
To solve this issue, make a link (
ln -s …) from the
data directory in
/usr/share/dokuwiki seems to work.
