Install the plugin using the Plugin Manager and the download URL above, which points to latest version of the plugin. Copy the entire folder to your dokuwiki installation under /lib/plugins/navpath. Make sure the name of the folder is navpath, otherwise the plugin won't work. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.


Default behavior

Just enter following tag to your syntax (make sure you have the closing <navpath> as well):


Specifiy splitting character(s)

By default, the text between the tags is separated at the comma. However, with the addition split=xxx you can specify any character sequence for this purpose.

The following syntax will do the same job as the default above.

<navpath split=###>Hello###World</navpath>
  • split can be a sequence of one or more characters (´,´ by default)


The plugin uses three small GIFs to indicate the beginning, end and individual steps in the menu path. These GIFs can be replaced by your own graphics in the directory /lib/plugins/navpath/images. If necessary adapt the filename in the code accordingly.

  • nav_start.gif
  • nav_step.gif
  • nav_end.gif
