Download and Installation

Download the action.php below from source code section and save that file as lib/plugins/mypage/action.php.

No download package available at the moment.


No other plugins are required, but any plugins capable of displaying information related to a specific user are useful, such as

  • The editor plugin, to show a list of pages edited by the currently logged in user.

How to use it

  1. Add an action link in you template
    <a href="<?php wl($ID, 'do=mypage')?>" class="action mypage" rel="nofollow" accesskey="m">My page</a>
  2. Create a page template for the page “My page”
    Two options:
    • Create a page with the name mypagetemplate
    • or a file called _mypage.txt in the data/pages directory.

This example uses the editor plugin to display a list of pages edited by the current user.

====== My page ======
Hello @NAME@! Here is a list of your contributions.
  • See Namespace_templates for supported macros in the page template.
    Some examples: @NS@, @NAME@, @USER@, @MAIL@ and @DATE@.
  • As this page is only a template, you can choose to make it invisible using the ACL.

To display the personalized user page, you add do=mypage on any page URL.
