plugin Simplify managing DokuWiki tables by adding intuitive GUI

This plugin allows you to use dokuwiki tables using simple ajax GUI. Every table change is saved in dokuwiki as the new page revision so now you don't need to worry when you accidentally change or remove some table rows.(as it was in old dtable). The plugin additionally manages page locks so you don't need to worry that someone can damage your work by using the same page pararelly with you. I've also decided to change all new line chars that appears in textareas to “\\” so now you won't destroy your table when you accidentally insert some new lines to it.

To see what the plugin can do visit this demo page. Login using the user “demo” and the password “demo”. FIXME

To add, edit or remove records just click with the right mouse button on the table. To send the form in the table just doubleclick somwhere in the page. Only logged in users can modify the table.

Download and Installation

Download and install the plugin using the Plugin Manager using the URL given above. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.

Syntax and Usage

Just put your dokuwiki table between <dtable></dtable> tags. Ex.:

^Header 1^Header 2^
