Since this plugin breaks other plugins and renders other contents empty, I use CSS3 hyphenation instead as described in I edited my theme's design.css to

* {
  hyphens: auto;

and removed the hyphenation plugin.


  • The hyphenation plugin seems to conflict with the blog plugin, as it interferes with html entities like



    and transforms them to



  • messes up lower/upper case with words in custom hypenation: e.g. “Kon/fir/manden/frei/zeit” in custom hyph the plugin renders all occurences of Konfirmandenfreizeit as konfirmandenfreizeit
  • messes up with dokuwiki's email addresses hex encoding scheme (mailguard): if hyphenation plugin is enabled it seems that pages with large amounts of html hex sequences are not shown at all. Loading seems to stall and after some time an empty page is shown with no error message at all. You can start with 2-3 email addresses (and it works) add more adresses… and after some lines the page won't show anymore.


Please, note that this Plugin requires PHP 5!


Hello, I have a fatal error, maybe due to the restrictie php settings of my provider cwcity. Fatal error: Call to undefined function mb_split() in /home/www/cwcity/hosting/r/o/roomsixhu/htdocs/lib/plugins/hyphenation/phpHyphenation/phpHyphenation.class.php on line 142

I removed it
