These are the different sidebar types.

Type Description
main see main sidebar
user see user sidebar
group see group sidebar
namespace see namespace sidebar
index shows the DokuWiki index
custom see custom sidebar
This comes in handy for example if you like to include Google ads.

ACL Setup

If you like to use the user- or group-sidebars you have to set up your <dokuwiki>/conf/acl.auth.php the right way.

This is an example setup for a user “tom” (User-Name: tom) who is a member of group “@user”. The “user sidebar namespace” is set to “user” and “group sidebar namespace” is set to “group”. We will grant him write/page-creation/upload permissions for his own namespace and read/edit permissions for the group:users namespace to everyone who's part of the group “@users”.

---- snip ----
user:*           @ALL   0
group:*          @ALL   0
user:tom:*       tom    8
group:users:*    @user  2
---- snap ----

First Steps

Adding the Main Sidebar

First of all you probably like to create the main sidebar. If you didn't change the “Pagename” setting you simply have to create a wikipage called sidebar1) and add some links.

====== Navigation  ======

Adding a User Sidebar

If you've enabled user sidebars you can add a sidebar for each registered user. All you have to do is create a wikipage user:username:sidebar. Note, this feature depends on a proper acl-setup.

Adding a Group Sidebar

Group sidebars are set up just like user sidebars.

Adding a Namespace Sidebar

If you've enable namespace sidebars you can add a sidebar for every namespace you like. Thus the naming scheme is the same for all sidebars, the only thing you've to do is creating a page called, you guessed right ;-), “sidebar” inside the desired namespace. This sidebar, then, will only show if you browse pages within this namespace.

Action management

This template supports action menu management from the administration tools which are shipped with DokuWiki.

Known bugs and issues

no URL rewrite

For me the action-thing only works, if I change lines 78 to 109 in tpl_function.php to

    switch($am) {
       case 'export_raw':
            print '   <option value="doku.php?id='.$ID.'&do=export_raw">'.$lang['export_raw'].'</option>';
       case 'export_html':
            print '   <option value="doku.php?id='.$ID.'&do=export_html">'.$lang['export_html'].'</option>';
       case 'export_htmlbody':
            print '   <option value="doku.php?id='.$ID.'&do=export_htmlbody">'.$lang['export_htmlbody'].'</option>';
       case 'export_odt':
            print '   <option value="doku.php?id='.$ID.'&do=export_odt">'.$lang['export_odt'].'</option>';
       case 'backlink':
            print '   <option value="doku.php?id='.$ID.'&do=backlink">'.$lang['backlink'].'</option>';
       case 'pagemove':
            print '   <option value="doku.php?id='.$ID.'&do=admin&page=pagemove">'.$lang['pagemove'].'</option>';
       case 'config':
            print '   <option value="doku.php?id='.$ID.'&do=admin&page=config">'.$lang['config'].'</option>';
       case 'purge':
            print '   <option value="doku.php?id='.$ID.'&do=true">'.$lang['purge'].'</option>';
       case '---':
            print '   <option value="show" disabled="disabled" class="disabled">------------------------</option>';
            print '   <option value="doku.php?id='.$ID.'&do='.$am.'">'.$am.'</option>';

What now happens is, that the current site-ID is added to the function-call you generally add with &do=…

It´s just a hack, so actually you should code the lines somehow like “ if($urlrewrite==no){…} else …

Feel free to improve the code.

details page: date formatted wrong

In detail.php, the function call date should be replaced by strftime.

  • Thanks to the Arctic template author. I have used that template as a starting point for creating this one.


  • Is it possible to make the sidebar optional? — Reder 2008/04/22 03:50
    • It's done. In admin menu now it have check box to on/off sidebar
  • Can you put the TOC into the sidebar like arctic template? — Haya 2008/04/29 07:50
or whatever you set pagename to
