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


If you are using basic DokuWiki template, you should have a new export button by the pagetool buttons. It can be switched off in configuration. To export a page, put &do=export_latexit at the end of the demanded URL.


The plugin allows you to export multiple DokuWiki pages in a single LaTeX file.

1st Insert syntax

If you want to insert a page as a subsection, put the following just before the link to the demanded page:


~ works exactly the same as = in headers. Number of ~ will determine the level of the first header of inserted page.

2nd Insert syntax

:!: develonly only in outstanding pull request

A replacement of the recursion syntax is the insertwikipage syntax. The functionality is similar, but the caching should be improved. \insertwikipage[headinglevel]{pageid|Title}

  • headinglevel: Let heading start at 1 = biggest heading to 5 = smallest heading.
    Sets size of the starting heading in the inserted page. (Example: using 2 displays ====== Head ====== as ===== Head=====)
  • pageid: absolute or relative pageid
  • Title (Optional) : Title for the url when it is shown in the wiki.

Additional syntaxes

Some supported syntaxes and their replacement in LaTeX.
