Support the ongoing development of DokuWiki Plugins and Templates and buy me a chocolate (Suggested: 3€ for a regular or 5€ for big one with cookies ;-)).


r7thblog1 is a template for DokuWiki wiki engine (inspired by Greenery theme for Wordpress). I have seen this theme the first time here. As you can see, it's an ideal template for bloggers ;).The main features:

  • Menu - customizable menu, that is displayed on every page.
  • Sidebar - customizable sidebar, that is displayed on every page (sidebar page). Every namespace may have his own sidebar (sidebar page into the namespace).
  • Footer - user defined footer information.
  • No TOC - I'd not set the table of contents, all of the namespaces/pages would be running with NOTOC (feel free to design your own TOC and send me by mail to include on the template).




Refer to template on how to install and use templates in DokuWiki. Easy way:

  1. Download the tarball/zip-file
  2. Unpack it into <dokuwiki>/lib/tpl/
  3. Login as admin and change the template in the configuration manager


Template parameters are located in the following file <dokuwiki>/lib/tpl/<template>/conf.php.

  * [[blog|Blog]] 
  * [[gallery|Gallery]] 
  * [[docs|Docs]]
  * [[code|Code]]
  * [[contact|Contact]]

Every namespace can have its own sidebar. Simply add a page called namespace_sidebar on same level than the namespace is. If no sidebar is found in the current namespace, the default_sidebar will be used (if it exists). If there is no default_sidebar page, nothing will appears.

I have a problem with floats. I did a post with a figure and a note and a big blank space appeared. Using Clearfloat does not work. Please visit this, and see what I mean. Thanks for the fantastic template!

You need to quote 'namespace' (tpl_functions.php, line 39) for this plugin to work with PHP 5.3. Thanks for the plugin.
