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

Configuration and Settings

Add a config file named editions.conf into your wiki's "conf" folder (not the plugin's “conf” folder) with edition name and language code per row, e.g.

laforgue        fr
machen          en
conrad          de

You need to have a certain namespace and page structure, i.e.

  1. the edition namespace (configurable via the editionNamespace config option)
  2. needs sub namespaces for each edition
  3. all page names must be the same between the different editions
  4. all paragraphs need to be in the same order across same pages

Example for a first chapter page:


For every edition add one PNG icon (16×16) with the name of the edition as written in editions.conf to the “images” folder.
