plugin Allow overwriting default XHTML render actions

Last updated on

Tagged with rendering, xhtml

This plugin aims to solve the problem, that only one default XHTML renderer can be used, but you sometimes want to overwrite different core renderer behaviors.

This plugin is meant to be registered as default renderer. It then provides an action hook for other plugins to modify the default XHTML behavior.

:!: Installing this plugin may slightly decrease rendering performance.


Install the plugin using the Plugin Manager and the download URL above, which points to latest version of the plugin. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.

Then select this plugin in the renderer_xhtml configuration setting.

Then install plugins making use of this functionality.


This plugin triggers an event named PLUGIN_ACTIONRENDERER_METHOD_EXECUTE. It is triggered for each call to a method in the XHTML renderer. You may prevent the default action (which is the appropriate method) in the BEFORE event. You can also modify the arguments in the BEFORE event.

The passed data is an associative array with the following fields:

  • method (string) the XHTML renderer method to be called
  • renderer (object) the renderer instance, eg. an instance of this plugin (which inherits from Doku_Renderer_xhtml
  • arguments (array) the arguments that will be passed to method
