Quick start on Dokuwiki


There are many ways to create a page:

  1. While you're editing another page, create a link to the new page with [[New page name]] and follow that link then click on Create this page.
  2. Search for the page and click on Create this page.

Each page starts with a title wrapped in heading 1 tags. Like this:

====== This is my awesome new page! =======

Delete a page by saving a blank page.

List all pages by clicking the Sitemap button in the top right corner.


Analogy: namespaces are folders, pages are files. You create a namespace by creating a page prefixed with that namespace and a colon (:), like this: faq:quitting. Take a quick look at the URL bar, this page is in the wiki namespace.

Simple formatting

DokuWiki supports **bold**, //italic//, __underlined__ and ''monospaced'' texts.
Of course you can **__//''combine''//__** all these.

Lists are 2-space-indented and each item can start with a * (unordered) or a - (ordered).


Text enclosed in double ticks ('') is monospaced; meanwhile <code></code> creates a code block. Beware that they might need to be captured in %% (nowiki).
