This Plugin was inspired by the original stars plugin. The improvements contain a better compatibility, nicer graphics, a toolbar integration and more syntax options.


Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager.

Or refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually:

  • Download “Stars2 plugin” and unzip file locally
  • Transfer to server holding Dokuwiki
    • Copy subfolder “stars” to: ..your..dokuwiki…/lib/plugins


Stars can be created with two methods:

  1. With the Toolbarbutton Stars 1-5
  2. With Syntax code as shown below

Possible Problems

No Toolbar button

Did you install another Toolbar plugin? It only works with the original toolbar
