This plugin connects DokuWiki with a Simple Machines forum. This is a read-only module, user management is handled with SMF, not DokuWiki.


Install the plugin using Plugin Manager and the download URL above. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.

Configuration and Settings

Edit dokuwiki/conf/local.php and add the following line to activate this plugin:

$conf['authtype']    = 'authsmf20';

You should remove any other 'authtype' config lines if any are already there.

Navigate to the plugin directory (dokuwiki/lib/plugins/authsmf20/conf/) and edit default.php. Change the first configuration line to point to your SMF installation. For example:

$conf['smf_path']   = '/var/www/web/SMFforum';

Finally, de-activate the following DokuWiki features:

  • Register
  • Update profile
  • Set new password
  • Delete own account

You can do this by adding this line to local.php:

$conf['disableactions'] = 'Register, Update profile, Set new password, Delete own account';
