I mean, what's more likely -- that I have uncovered fundamental flaws in this field that no one in it has ever thought about, or that I need to read a little more? Hint: it's the one that involves less work.


Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager.

Alternatively, refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually:

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


The comic can be created with the syntax. To align the image you can use the divalign2 plugin.
