External requirements:

The rst plugin requires the following additional components that must be installed separately:

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


The plugin accepts all the RestructuredText syntax described at There are two ways to use it, either with <rst> directives in an existing Dokuwiki page or by creating pages with a .rst suffix.

Using directives

Just wrap the RestructuredText in the directives:-

This is restructured text
Filename with .rst suffix

Create a new page, if you create a link to a new page called newpage.rst within Dokuwiki the page will actually have the filename newpage.rst.txt, this will be recognised by the plugin and will be parsed as RestructuredText. You can of course create pages by other means, just ensure they are of the form pagename.rst.txt.
