Action Modes aka. do Modes
List of possible action modes (may be incomplete yet) with their descriptions. These actions are usually caused by supplying an according
?do= parameter to the
doku.php dispatcher. The knowledge of the current mode may be useful for making templates more dynamic or write action plugins. The current can be accessed via the global $ACT variable.
The action modes are handled in the Action Router.
