Tired of not finding the user manager fast enough? This plugin replaces the standard 'Admin' page. It has the four basic tasks (users, ACL, plugin management & config settings) separated from the rest of currently installed admin plugins. This will make management faster and easier. As a bonus the DokuWiki version is displayed in a convenient place along with PHP version.

Note: This functionality is included in the DokuWiki core since version 2009-12-25 “Lemming” with nicer icons.

Download and Installation

Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.

Just install and enjoy! You will see something like this depending on active template. Sometimes a page reload is necessary to clear the browsers CSS-cache.


This plugin uses the TPL_ACT_UNKNOWN trick from event_handlers.

  1. In act_dispatch() the ACTION_ACT_PREPROCESS event is raised before dispatching any requested actions. The plugin catches the event and replaces ACT='admin' with ACT='adminhomepage'.
  2. Then tpl_content_core() receives the 'adminhomepage' action and the TPL_ACT_UNKNOWN event is raised so the new admin page is rendered.
  3. Naturally $_REQUEST['page'] is checked so it's empty, which is the admin main page.

  • Great! Thanks. Here is my french translation proposition:
     * french language file for AdminHomePage plugin
     * @license    GPL 2 (
     * @author     Håkan Sandell <sandell[dot]hakan[at]gmail. com>
     * @author     Etienne M. <emauvaisfr[at]>
    $lang['pageheader']            = 'Administration';
    $lang['wiki_version']          = 'Version de DokuWiki :';
    $lang['php_version']           = 'Version de PHP :';
    $lang['more_adminheader']      = 'Autres plugins d\'administration';
    $lang['more_admintext']        = '//Plugins// d\'administration disponibles sur ce DokuWiki. Voir sur [[doku>fr:plugins?pluginsort=d&plugintype=2|Admin Plugins]] pour en ajouter.';
Excellent idea. I used your ideas to redesign the core admin area in a similar way. — Andreas Gohr 2009/06/06 12:16
