convert mediawiki page to dokuwiki

pandoc -f mediawiki -t dokuwiki --shift-heading-level-by=-1 mw.txt -o dk.txt

Q. Why –shift-heading-level-by=-1?

A. The section levels are preserved. For example

$ cat mw.txt
==== foo ====

$ pandoc -f mediawiki -t dokuwiki mw.txt
=== foo ===

$ pandoc --shift-heading-level-by=-1 -f mediawiki -t dokuwiki mw.txt
==== foo ====

Tag plugin

  • The plugin version 2022-10-02 is incompatible with dokuwiki 0.0.20180422.a-2.1. For example, if I add the following line to the bill_pay_setup page
    {{tag>tag1 tag2 tag3}}

I am getting

fixed the issue

table with minimum column width

Use

<WRAP group><WRAP column>
^ Heading ^ Heading ^
| cell data | cell data |
</WRAP></WRAP>

For example

<WRAP group><WRAP column>
^ Heading ^ Heading ^
| cell data | cell data |
</WRAP></WRAP>

will render as

Heading Heading
cell data cell data

while

^ Heading ^ Heading ^
| cell data | cell data |

will render as

Heading Heading
cell data cell data

Ref: https://forum.dokuwiki.org/d/19773-how-can-a-table-be-indented-within-a-list

indented paragraph

If you only need one tab, install the “WRAP” Plugin (See http://dokuwiki.org/plugin:wrap), and then use the following syntax:

<WRAP indent>your text</WRAP>

Example:

foo 1

  • bar 1
  • bar 2

foo 2

  • bar 3
  • bar 4

tags | insert tab

double dashes in monospaced text

Use ''%%--%%'' to render --.

Compare this to ''--'' which renders as a single dash

Ref:- https://www.dokuwiki.org/wiki:syntax#no_formatting

Extension:- To display an option such as --skip-string-normalization, use ''%%--skip-string-normalization%%''.

tags | remove formatting

sitemap

search within a namespace

To search pages within a namespace, prefix @ or ns: to the namespace. To not search pages within a namespace, prefix ^ or -ns: to the namespace.

Examples:

dividend yield ns:diary

will search for 'dividend yield' in the 'diary' namespace

issues reported by me

remove extra line in lists inside table cells

tags | lists inside table cells wrap plugin

When the WRAP plugin is used to create lists inside table cells, an extra line is added at the end of the list. To remove it, add the following to /etc/dokuwiki/userstyle.css .

div.plugin_wrap ul { margin-bottom: 0px; }

The new setting will be picked up automatically when the page is refreshed.

include code in ordered lists

Put the <code> tag on the same line of the item. For example

  • foo
    bar

as opposed to

  • foo
bar

Useful documentation

multiple lines in table cell

Install the wrap plugin and do something like

^ days ^ months ^
| <WRAP>
  * Sunday
  * Monday
</WRAP> | <WRAP>
  * January
  * February
  * March
</WRAP> |
| <WRAP>
  * Tuesday
  * Wednesday
</WRAP> | <WRAP>
  * April
  * May
</WRAP> |

which will give

days months
  • Sunday
  • Monday
  • January
  • February
  • March
  • Tuesday
  • Wednesday
  • April
  • May

Questions to look into

  • Is it possible to persist the breadcrumbs across user sessions? For example, the breadcrumbs are lost if I close the chrome browser and reopen it. Is it possible to preserve them even in such cases?
