This plugin does not need any requirements but you need a template like Boostrap3 to display icons in Dokuwiki. Otherwise, notes are displayed without icons.


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.


Initial Syntax

The basic syntax is the following : <bootnote argument>Your note</bootnote>

Example :
<bootnote learn>Do you want to learn something ?</bootnote>

You can use actually 6 different types of argument :

  • “nothing” : if there is no argument, display a simple note with info sign.
  • web : display a note with an globe sign.
  • question : display a note with question sign.
  • learn or tip : display note with an education sign.
  • warning: display a note with a warning sign.
  • critical or important : display a note with a fire sign.

If you want another style of note, please open an issue.

Note Syntax

If you have activate 'note' in settings, you must use the following syntax : <note>text</note>.

Arguments of note are working too.

Configuration and Settings

  • bootnote.note: You can choose to override the plugin note in settings to continue using its syntax.
  • bootnote.theme: you can come back to old theme if you want. (See below for further informations)
  • bootnote.position: defines if you want to display your text beside or below the note title.

Old Theme: The old theme is always available in settings but he's deprecated for Dokuwiki theme and only works properly with a Bootstrap theme ! This theme may be removed in future versions
