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.

As per development version on GitHub:


This plugin builds a HTML calendar for the given year, with a link to create a new page for each day of the year. Existing pages will have a tool-tip showing a preview of the page content. You can also use the recent= option to show only recent months, which is useful on the bottom of diary pages.

The purpose of the plugin is to easily create and manage diary, journal, and event pages. If you want to include a recent months calendar at the bottom of each of your diary pages then the include plugin is very helpful.

For example the following markup on your wiki page:

====== Yearbox test page ======









…will result in these calendars.

Yearbox Example Screenshot

The namespace/page-name is automatically created as follows:

  • <ns>
    • <year-month>
      • <name>-<year>-<month>-<day>

Tip: The pagequery plugin can be quite useful if you want to display a list of recent entries, perhaps for use in a simple blog.
