:!: This functionality is integrated into the DokuWiki core since “Lemming”.


Adds JavaScript actions to the default editor to make working with lists easier and more intuitive. Just make lists like normal but enjoy these shortcuts. For the time being it does NOT work (or even activate) in Internet Explorer.

  • Press Enter on a list item to create another list item of the same type and level
  • Press Tab or Shift + Tab on a list item to indent/outdent

I tried to strike a balance among internationalization, caching, and reducing script load for visitors who don't edit pages.

Download and Installation

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


This would be great, but it doesn't work at all on my installation - with Firefox, of course. The only difference is that I am using the Monobook template. I'm not sure if that would have an effect or not.

  1. hitting enter at the end of this line brings me


Hitting tab at the beginning of a numbered line sends me out of the edit window.

Also tried it in SeaMonkey (Mozilla based browser)

Any ideas? Maybe there is a setting in config that has to be tweaked to match yours? -doug higbyfamily com

doug - I just tried monobook and things worked fine. The only changed setting in my install is that CSS/JS compression is off. Also make sure to clear your cache(s) — David 2009-05-08

Thank you! A beautiful plugin, enjoyable to use. Quicker than using an AutoHotkey shortcut script to “Send” the “ * ” etc., which is what I was previously doing. Works fine for me in Firefox.
