Known Bugs and Issues

Hi, it seems that JAVASCRIPT compression from dokuwiki is breaking your JS code.
I de-minified the javascript, this should fix your problem.

ToDo/Wish List

What a great plugin - thanks! A request: Would it be possible to have dokuwiki style links in the messages? e.g. Me->You: [[wiki:page:link|Message is a Link]]. Thanks! Jon B



Is there a way to get this to work with dw2pdf?

The plugin uses javascript to generate the image on the client-side and I dont’t think dw2pdf can handle that.
But you can use plantuml instead.

Might it work taking a look at/or integrating a tool like Mscgen (
