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


Paste the link of a published google drawing in your dokuwiki page:

URL from editor:

Old publish URL:

The plugin will convert the link to a <img>-tag displaying the image.

The image will be clickable and open the google drawing page in a new windows, so you can edit it on the fly.

This is useful for example if you want to have sketches that are as easily edited as the wiki itself: no need to upload new versions of images, etc.

You can also use a more specific syntax if you want more control

{{gdraw>1j4V1jYvhZBfOqWDQ-eIsL2vA3nOI9jsNce_ACI9dAwU width=123 title="test title" center}}

This syntax allows you to set tile and alignment as well as width and height.


Configuration and Settings

If you use google docs for your own domain, you can configure the domain base url.

Known Bugs and Issues

  1. The {{}} syntax may not work
  2. The “specific syntax” may be incompatible with the MediaSyntax plugin
  3. Of course, the Google drawing has to be “published to the world”. If the drawing is published for a selected set of users only - those users must be logged on to their google docs account for the image to work.
