This is a very simple plugin that allows HTML style comments to be used in the wikitext. They will show up unchanged in the XHTML output. They will not be rendered by the browser, but can be viewed with “View source code” command. The syntax is exactly like in HTML:

<!-- This is a HTML comment -->

This can be useful, if you're post-processing the HTML output in some way, e.g. to produce PDF documents. Some converters can use special HTML comments to steer the conversion process.


This plugin is based on the comment plugin by Esther Brunner.


Simply install via the plugin manager with the download link.


New in version 1.1:

  • Incorporated changes made by Esther Brunner (see Discussion).
  • Defined constant HTMLCOMMENT_SAFE to allow to switch back to old behaviour.
  • Removed version number from plugin archive, since the plugin manager can't handle versioned archives.
