About

This plugin gives you the ability to let users cite your work. This is required quite often in academia and journalism.

The way this is done is by appending ”&do=cite” to a wiki page's URL in addition to an optional revision number, for example “rev=123456789”.

The plugin also exports two functions for use with your template, with URLs for a permanent link (cite_getPermURL) to a page revision and a citation link(cite_getCiteURL) so that you can let others easily cite your work.

<note warning>If you do not add the following code to your template's main.php, no citation links will appear!</note>

In main.php, add the following at the top of the file:

<?php if (file_exists(DOKU_PLUGIN.'cite/code.php')) include_once(DOKU_PLUGIN.'cite/code.php'); ?>

To display a permanent link or citation link at any point in your document, use the following code as an example:

<?php if (function_exists('cite_getPermURL')) { ?><a href="<?php echo cite_getPermURL(); ?>" rel="nofollow">Permanent Link</a><?php } ?>
<?php if (function_exists('cite_getCiteURL')) { ?><a href="<?php echo cite_getCiteURL(); ?>" rel="nofollow">Cite this Page</a><?php } ?>

My advice is to keep the rel="nofollow" intact as this ensures search engines don't index citations.

Set the options for this plugin via the Configuration Settings menu from the DokuWiki admin menu. (It will be near the bottom of the page.)

Upgrading

To upgrade, remove the original lib/plugins/cite folder, and install the new version as instructed above.
