Install the plugin using the Plugin Manager and the download URL above, which points to latest version of the plugin. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.


The only purpose of this plugin is to touch loal configuration file local.conf. Such change of the file timestamp is detected by DokuWiki and triggers reloading of CSS, javascript, etc which were cached.

This plugin should help when

  • you install some plugin with its own javascript files and/or css styles and the files are not loaded properly first time
  • you are tweaking dokuwiki page editor toolbar (*.js files) or installing editor toolbur plugins
  • may be there are some other cases too

Configuration and Settings

The plugin has only one setting: it can be set available only to superusers (the default) or to anyone who has access to admin page (usually superusers and managers.

Change Log

Plugin was lying around here and there, even as a simple code block on this page. On 2012/09/16 it moved to github so this date is its official birthday 1).

Known Bugs and Issues

None so far.

ToDo/Wish List



Is it worth to include this functionality into core dokuwiki admin/config plugin?
