DokuWiki got a built-in method to hide pages. Those pages have a noindex in their metadata and they are hidden in feeds and search results but this behaviour is not inherited to sub pages or to whole namespaces.

Not For The Robots provides the possibility to show pages to the user (feeds, search results) but provide metadata to prevent the indexing of pages and namespaces (including all sub pages) by search engines.
