FAQs about this Site(PukiWiki-official)

How can I create/edit pages on PukiWiki-official?

Please insert the desired name you want to create in the text input field near the top of the page and press the button near it.

Is English Documentation available?

English Documentation for PukiWiki is now in the process of being translated.

Where are the FormatRules?

Are SubPages possible?

PukiWiki uses SubPage-like Categories. There are some plugins that support SubPage .: ls,ls2,navi etc.

How does the Adminpassword work? Where is the Login Screen?

PukiWiki 1.3: The Adminpassword is needed to freeze/unfreeze a page.

PukiWiki 1.4: The Adminpassword must be used to Rename pages.

With respect to deleted pages, how can I find out what has been deleted?

PukiWiki 1.3 doesn't have a function that shows deleted pages.

PukiWiki 1.4 has the "deleted" plugin for showing deleted pages and content.

deleted plugin
  • type : command
  • synopsys : ?cmd=deleted
  • function : Shows a named list of deleted pages.

Save Pages for Reading/Writing

pukiwiki.ini.php has two settings:

$read_auth = 0; and
$write_auth = 0;

if you set them both to 1, protection is enabled. Insert the name of the pages in this array:

$read_auth_pages = array() and
$edit_auth_pages = array()
together with the usernames, listed in
$auth_users = array()
  • Is it possible to show a key or something like that on pages linking to closed pages?
    • I cannot see why you would need to show a key on the certain pages.
    • For example on the Page "RecentChanges", so users who haven't an account for closed pages, don't click on them.
    • I thought you wanted to show the password itself... look at the bottom of this page, anyway.

Edit-Button next to Headers

There is a small pen icon for editing a particular section. How can I use this? Is this a plugin?

How to

  • (STEP1) pukiwiki.php

    Insert the folowing code at the beginning of main script.

    $post["msg"] = _plugin_paraedit_parse_postmsg($post["msg_before"], $post["msg"], $post["msg_after"]);
  • (STEP2)skin (skin/pukiwiki.skin.en.php, or skin/pukiwiki.skin.php)
    Replace <?php echo $body?> with:
    <?php include_once 'plugin/paraedit.inc.php'; echo _plugin_paraedit_mkeditlink($body); ?>
    (PukiWiki1.3.5 has 1 line for it.1.4rc3 has two lines for it.)
  • (STEP3)paraedit.inc.php

    upload paraedit.inc.php(download)to your plugin directory

    some archives: dev:PukiWiki/1.3/自作プラグイン/ParaEdit (Japanese page)

  • (STEP4)convert_html()
    • (STEP4-A-)If you use Pukiwiki1.3.5 follow this instruction.
      [Edit] "html.php"
      Search the following line(it would be found in "function convert_html" in html.php):
      array_push($result, "<h$level><a name=\"content_{$content_id_local}_$content_count\"></a>$str $top_link</h$level>");
      And replace it with the following new code:
      $paraedit_flag = ($content_id_local == 1) ? ' paraedit_flag=on' : '';
      array_push($result, "<h$level $paraedit_flag><a name=\"content_{$content_id_local}_$content_count\"></a>$str $top_link</h$level>");
    • (STEP4-B-) If you use Pukiwiki1.4 follow this instruction.
      [EDIT]"convert_html.php (lib/convert_html.php)"
      Search the following 2 lines(it would be found in "class Heading extends Block".):
      return $this->msg_top.
      	$this->wrap(parent::toString(),'h'.$this->level," id=\"{$this->id}\"");
      Replace them with the following 3 lines:
      $paraedit_flag = (preg_match("/^content_1_/", $this->id)) ? ' paraedit_flag=on' : '';
      return $this->msg_top.
      	$this->wrap(parent::toString(),'h'.$this->level," id=\"{$this->id}\"$paraedit_flag");

How do I revert spam?

A spammer replaced good text on a page with his spam. How do I revert to the previous version?
Another spammer replaced the previous spam with his own spam. How do I revert to 2 versions ago?

At present, we can't revert automatically. Edit the page to copy from backup data.


  • In RecentChanges I found nothing :-(
    And a few feedback for Pukiwiki 1.3.4, which I'm using (in German ;-)):
    "_" in css-class-names is not allowed, I changed this in my version.
  • Errata in REC-CSS2-19980512 (W3C)

    [2001-07-30] The underscore should be allowed in identifiers. Change "In CSS2, identifiers [...] can contain only the characters [A-Za-z0-9] and ISO 10646 characters 161 and higher, plus the hyphen (-)" to:

    In CSS2, identifiers [...] contains only the characters [A-Za-z0-9] and ISO 10646 characters 161 and higher, plus the hyphen (-) and the underscore (_)

  • You can start with ":" when you make a closed page, which prevents the page from listed on "RecentChanges". Or you can make a certain rule for closed pages and let your visitors know on your site.(i.e. the pages end with capitalized character indicates the closed pages...)
  • Well, if you want to show the key automatically on every link in Pukiwiki, you need to hack certain files.(maybe make_link.php controls the global link system.) Plus some plugins also produce a list of links automatically: recent.inc.php, ls2.inc.php,etc...
  • Pukiwiki provides some functions to check if the page is readable/editable or not. And some plugin use these functions: include.inc.php is one of them. And here is the list of the functions for page restriction -pukiwiki.dev-plugin. This resource is also useful when you make a plugin - plugin document. Unfortunately, these documents are written in Japanese. - Olorin
  • Is there an area for Q&A in English anywhere? Temporarily I will make this page englishQandA
  • Hi. How do I customize the side menu? I would like to add a calander2 plugin and also display more items instead of the usual 20 items. Can anyone please help? Thank you. -- Sean? 2005-09-03 (土) 02:37:20
    • Default menubar width is too small to add a Carendar2. To change the way a menubar appears on your PukiWiki, you should style the menubar tags with this PukiWiki CSS Template (skin/pukiwiki.css.php on Version 1.4.5_1). -- 2005-09-03 (土) 14:49:16
  • DATA_DIR is not found or not writable -- 2006-05-03 (水) 01:24:44
