This is a handy plugin with which you can include another wiki page into the current one.


Simply enclose the ID of the page to be included in double curly brackets:

[id] page ID of the page to include; some macros are possible; shortcuts are resolved (:, ., ..) required
[section] limits the included page to a specific section and its subsections optional; default is the whole page
[flags] flags delimited by &, see flags optional

The plugin offers three syntaxes, {{page>...}} and {{section>...}} and {{namespace>...}}.

Section is aimed more at including sections, page at including whole pages and namespace at including whole namespaces1).


The plugin can be configured in the DokuWiki configuration manager available in the admin menu. These settings also affect the blog plugin which uses the include plugin to generate the blog page.

noheader Don't display the header of the inserted section
firstseconly Display only the first section of the included page
showtaglogos Show/hide an image for the first tag (if the page has tags)
showfooter Show/hide page footer below the included page
showlink Makes the first headline of a included page/section a link to the included page/section
showpermalink Show/hide a permalink to the included page in the page footer
showdate Show/hide creation date of the page in the page footer
showuser Show/hide user name of the page creator in the page footer
showcomments Show/hide number of comments in the page footer (requires the discussion plugin)
showlinkbacks Show/hide number of linkbacks in the page footer (requires the linkback or backlinks2 plugin)
showtags Show/hide tags in the page footer (requires the tag plugin)
showeditbtn Show/hide edit button below the included page
usernamespace Namespace for user pages (see showuser configuration) (default user)


Simple macros are possible to serve a page on a per user or per date base. These are:

@USER@ username
@NAME@ full name of user
@GROUP@ first group the user belongs to
@YEAR@ 4-digit year
@MONTH@ 2-digit month
@DAY@ 2-digit day




You may use flags to override default all configuration settings:
