plugin Add comments / notes to your wiki source that won't be shown on the page.

Conflicts with

This tiny plugin allows you to leave notes to yourself (and other authors of your wiki) in the wiki source code that won't be shown on the wiki page. The syntax is like C and PHP:


The text /* between the slash-asterisk and asterisk-slash */ is hidden


The text is hidden

You can also have multi-line comments:

 * @todo: rewrite this section to reflect changes made recently
 * this is a longer note

But this single line example works too:

/********** added by Esther **********/


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