Syntax and Usage

A background color is introduced by @ and ended by :.

You can use all names and color codes from HTML.

If you don't specify a color, yellow is used.

See examples below:


This code:

^  Header 1         ^  Header 2  ^  Header 3        ^
|  @lightgreen:**Span**         ||                  |
|  @#6495ed:Ligne 1 |  Oui       |  Oui, à valider  |
|  Ligne 2          |  Oui       |  @orange: Oui    |
|  @:Ligne 3        |  Oui       | @red:Non         |

looks like:

This one:

|  @palegreen:Validé  |  @orange:À valider  |  @red:Non fonctionnel  |

Wikis using cellbg


  • Uses HTML color codes and names HTML Color Code Chart
  • Works with other table formatting (alignment, bold, …)


  • Doesn't work with header lines (^ character), so just don't use them if you want a specific color for these lines
  • May not work with plugins introducing a different syntax than the DokuWiki one for tables
  • If “@…:” pattern is found out of a table, it might disable other syntax inside it (not sure about that).
