Password contains at least some defined special chars. Please be aware that the password will be stored in DokuWiki text files without any security in default.

Last updated on


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


Simply click on the new toolbar button to get a generated password. If you have any text selected, then it will be validated and if necessary, it will be replaced with a new password.

Configuration and Settings

Now you can configure 4 charsets wich are supposed to be used. Length is now also an option in configuration settings. Many more will be there, just more testing and some fixes needed to release new code.


Change Log

  • 2020-08-02
    • Made the description on the button dynamically, so it tells you what it will do, depending on the settings you made in your configuration.
    • Regeneration of a new password is now extremely easy (second click - if remove selection is disabled in options)
    • a good and validated password can now be replaced if you simply click the button again (if remove selection is disabled in options)
  • 2020-07-25
    • Added Configuration Settings “Charset1”, “Charset2”, “Charset3”, “Charset4”, another for Password Length, and a last one to handle if selected strings are deselected after generation/validation.
  • 2020-07-20

Known Bugs and Issues

Nothing worse, and I'm going on…

  • Validation of selected password doesn't apply exactly as it should

ToDo/Wish List

  • Multiple password criteria to select
  • Better customization (already has some configuration options now, but more may come)
