Media Management

Media Manager

The Media Manager is the place to add a supported format to the wiki to be used on a wiki page. The steps to do this are:

  1. Have a supported file to upload.
  2. Identify the page the media will be posted to.
  3. On the Media Manager page under 'Media Manager' in the center collom switch to the upload tab.
  4. Drag and drop or path to the file you wish to upload.
  5. Append 1) a namespace/s seperated with colons2), this namespace should not be root or wiki please create a namespace/s corrosponding to the path to the page on wich the file will be added to.
    • For adding a file to this page the namespace should be wiki:editing
  6. Upload and use on page.

Supported Media Formats

DokuWiki can embed the following media formats directly after uploading the media to the media manager.

jpg image/jpeg
jpeg image/jpeg
gif image/gif

odp !application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.presentation
ods !application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.spreadsheet
odt !application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text

The following text types are commented by default, because spammers are known to upload spam pages through unprotected Wikis using text type files.

html text/html
htm text/html
txt text/plain
conf text/plain
xml text/xml
csv text/csv

If you specify a filename that is not a supported media format, then it will be displayed as a link instead.

Fallback Formats

Unfortunately not all browsers understand all video and audio formats. To mitigate the problem, you can upload your file in different formats for maximum browser compatibility.
For example consider this embedded mp4 video:

	{{video.mp4|A funny video}}

When you upload a video.webm and video.ogv next to the referenced video.mp4, DokuWiki will automatically add them as alternatives so that one of the three files is understood by your browser.
Additionally DokuWiki supports a “poster” image which will be shown before the video has started. That image needs to have the same filename as the video and be either a jpg or png file. In the example above a video.jpg file would work.

	DokuWiki automatically generates a table of contents when the page contains more than three headlines. To disable the table of contents, insert the ~~NOTOC~~ markup somewhere in the page.
		====== Level 1 Headline ======
		===== Level 2 Headline =====
		==== Level 3 Headline ====
		=== Level 4 Headline ===
		== Level 5 Headline ==

Un-ordered Lists

	To create an unordered list, indent your text by two spaces and use the * character for each list item.
	* Level 1 list item
	   * Level 2 list item
	* Level 1 list item

Numbered Lists

	To create a numbered list, indent your text by two spaces and use the - character for each list item.
	- Level 1 list item
	 - Level 2 list item
	- Level 1 list item

Non-parsed Blocks

	To include a non-parsed block into a page, indent it by at least two spaces or use the code or file tags.

Syntax Highlighting Code Block

	DokuWiki supports code highlighting. It uses the GeSHi Generic Syntax Highlighter (http://qbnz.com/highlighter/), and recognizes any language supported by GeSHi. The code must be includes between tagsthat identify the programming language, for example: 
		<code oobas> 
			Code HERE
		</ code>

		<code java> 
			Code HERE
		</ code>
	General code block syntax
		<code Language File>
			Code HERE
		</ code>
	Note: Examples have a space in the </ code> line remove this to use!

Syntax Highlighting File Block

	Nearly excally the same as a code block but allows users to download the file ready to use.
	<file Language FileName.Extension>
		Code HERE
	Thanks Obama!

Page Export

	Single page can be exported to different formats by adding an appropriate do parameter to the URL:
	The following export options are available:
		export_raw (returns the pages source as text/plain )
		export_xhtml (returns the rendered page as simple XHTML without any navigational elements)
		export_xhtmlbody (returns the rendered XHTML of the page only)

Configuration Files

	conf/dokuwiki.php DokuWiki default settings
	conf/local.php DokuWiki user-defined settings
	conf/entities.conf Custom typography conversion rules

Keyboard Shortcuts

	On Mac, use Ctrl instead of Alt. In Firefox, use Alt+Shift
		Alt+E Open the current page in edit mode
		Alt+V Open the current page in view mode
		Alt+O Show old revisions of the current page
		Alt+R Show recent changes
		Alt+F Set the cursor to the search field
		Alt+H Open the start page
		Alt+X Open the index page


DokuWiki can integrate data from external XML feeds. For parsing the XML feeds, SimplePie is used. All formats understood by SimplePie can be used in DokuWiki as well. You can influence the rendering by multiple additional space separated parameters:

Parameter Description
any number will be used as maximum number items to show, defaults to 8
reverse display the last items in the feed first
author show item authors names
date show item dates
description show the item description. If HTML is disabled all tags will be stripped
n[dhm] refresh period, where d=days, h=hours, m=minutes. (e.g. 12h = 12 hours)

The refresh period defaults to 4 hours. Any value below 10 minutes will be treated as 10 minutes. DokuWiki will generally try to supply a cached version of a page, obviously this is inappropriate when the page contains dynamic external content. The parameter tells DokuWiki to re-render the page if it is more than refresh period since the page was last rendered.
