r7throot1 is a template for DokuWiki wiki engine (inspirited by Minima and mmZenzire templates). The main features:

  • 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.




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.

File Structure

 + pages
 |- sidebar        [1]
 |- blog
 |- stuff
 |- about

  |- sidebar
  |- 7throot1
 |- contact

Every namespace can have its own sidebar. Simply add a page called sidebar. If no sidebar is found in the current namespace, the sidebar of the parent namespace will be used. If there is no sidebar page in the namespace hierarchy, the index will be used.

Hi, I like the r7throot1 theme and it installs just fine, but when I switch to wide mode, it doesn't display correctly. If I have sidebar right, then I get a scrollbar beneath the “Main” page (which >appears to be normal width). If I have sidebar left, then it displays the sidebar beneath the “main” page. Any thoughts as to why this might be? I've tried it in both Firefox and Internet explorer. If I select narrow, the sidebar is in the correct position but appears to be wider than the header/footer images. Apologies for not being able to show you what I mean - I have this running on my PC for my own purposes, and not public use. Any thoughts on something to try for this?. Thanks in advance

Hello. I REALLY like your 7throot1 template. I was also wondering if you would address the width issue related above, as I've installed it a couple of times on different servers, but am also getting the >scrollbars for both up/down and left/right. Thanks for sharing your creation. Looking forward to any tweaks you provide. Cheers

When un-ziping the newest file, I'm getting an error. The file is corrupt. Really love this design :)

I'm also unable to unpack the 23/11/2007 file. I've tried 3 different programs, in both Linux and Windows - they all error out. Any chance of reposting these files?

Found Bug, easy correction. When you select the wide layout width, the “page” stays with the 752px of the medium layout. Fix: In layout.css
>/* ---------------  main ---------------- */
>div.dokuwiki div.main {
>  overflow: auto;
>  background-color: __background__;
>  border-left: 1px solid __text_alt__;
>  border-right: 1px solid __text_alt__;
>        width: 752px;    <-----------Comment or delete this line

Bug found when setting the layout width in “wide”. There is no header image for this size, and the main body of the page keeps in 752px width. Solution:
* within the div.main remove or comment line width: 752px (to 987)
* clear browser cache and re-start browser (this is also needed when changing the padding).
