plugin Adds drop-down navigation menus to breadcrumbs when using Bootstrap 3 template

Last updated on

Similar to twistienav

Tagged with breadcrumb, breadcrumbs, index, menu, navigation

This plugin is an adaptation of the twistienav plugin, to make it works with the Bootstrap3 template.

After installation you will find small glyphs after breadcrumbs concerning a namespace that contains more than a start page.

Clicking on that glyph will display a small pop-up containing an index of the related namespace.

It works both for “you are here” type breadcrumbs and for regular breadcrumbs.


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.

Template requirements

TwistieNav4Bootstrap3 has been specifically developped and tested for Dokuwiki's Bootstrap 3 template; it will not work with the default template.

  • [You are here] has to be a collection of links wrapped into a div with youarehere class
  • [Breadcrumbs] has to be a collection of links wrapped into a div with trace class
  • [pageId] has to be wrapped into an HTML element (e.g. `<div>`, `<span>`, …) with pageId class

:?: I've installed the plugin but nothing changed ! There are no glyphs near the breadcrumb links …

:!: The glyphs are added searching the DOM for the specific classes used by the Bootstrap 3 template. The plugin will not work when the standard template is used; it should work with any template derived from Bootstrap 3.
