:!: This plugin is no longer maintained.


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

Then, set your options in Admin → Configuration Settings. Don't forget to configure the regex, otherwise you'll get a popup on every link you hover!

Configuration and Settings

The available settings are as follows:

  • Fields to Show: Comma-separated list of data column names to look for
  • Types which should be look up: List of regular expressions that match Wiki links.

If you have, for instance, automatically generated page names, such as BUG-1, BUG-2, etc. the page title does not reflect the actual content. However, the page names follow a simple pattern you can use datapopup to resolve. In this case, the pattern would be (assume a namespace “bug:” for the bugs) “bugs:BUG-[0-9]+($|\?rev.*)”.
