I looked for a realy good Facebook like-button plugin for DokuWiki but there were only Facebook Plugin and fbsp Plugin. The first one only creates a big fat like-box and the second one is too simple. So I created a plugin on my own.


  1. You can fully customize the appearance.
  2. Easy usage.
  3. Text-Editor button.

Plugin configuration is available in following languages: German, English.

Adding the following code will insert a default Facebook like-button (with the default settings) on the current page. You can modify the default settings on the wiki configuration page (Admin → Configuration settings).


If you want you can modify the default settings by adding one or more parameters.
