This plugin works together with TemplatePageName. By default, DokuWiki does not include pages with name starting by ., - or _ in feeds, which is enough to have templates hidden when listing namespaces. If you use the plugin TemplatePageName or a similar one to change the default template names, chances are high that you will not start you template with one of these three characters to make your template editable online. In that case, you will have the template page listed in your feeds.

This plugin makes sure these template pages do not appear in namespace listing feeds.


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

This plugin is made to work well with TemplatePageName, but it is not required. If you do not use TemplatePageName, you will have to configure the plugin after installation.

Configuration and Settings

By default, the plugin will get the template page names from the TemplatePageName plugin configuration, so you don't need to configure it twice. If you use that plugin, DontFeedTemplates will just work out-of-the-box.

If you do not use TemplatePageName but still want to filter out some special template files (or if you use another plugin to achieve the same goal as TemplatePageName), you may still use the plugin. You need to activate the always option that forces the plugin to activate. Then you must also specify the name of the template page for the current namespace and the one for the current and below namespaces (inherited) [See template_files for more information]. These pages will no longer appear in the feeds of type list.
