Download and Installation

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


This plugin adds a “Changes” button that allows you to see a diff preview of your changes.


25 June 2020: I apologize for the bug that told users to update when there was no new version. This problem has been going on since March. I have now fixed it and updated the plugin for the Hogfather release. So please update this time.


Use with subscriptions?

Is there a way to activate diffpreview for subscriptions? The mails sent by the subscription feature of dokuwiki are formatted like the classical diff tool does. For the technically not so inclined this is a little taxing. So I am looking for a more intuitive solution. — KaiMartin 2020-03-20 18:16

Broken in Greebo (fixed)

Unfortunately, this plugin does not work in release 2018-04-22b “Greebo”. See this discussion on the dokuwiki forum. — KaiMartin 2019-02-04 19:01

This should be fixed in the latest update. — tilwa 2019-04-16 02:19
Can confirm. It works with the latest version. Thank you for the fix! — KaiMartin 2019-09-21 20:02
