Wiki Compatibility Plugins for Sycamore and Moin-Like Wikis


This plugin contains a set of macros that can be used to port wikis that use the Sycamore wiki engine. They can also be useful for other moin-like systems.

Key features:

  • Anchor creates a named anchor.
  • MailTo obscures email addresses.
  • Stop directs users to a /Talk page for the entry. This needs some work on theming.
  • Note inserts a comment, which will not be displayed on the web page.
  • Nbsp inserts a non-breaking space.

Create an anchor with name "AnchorName":


Create a mailto: link if the user viewing is logged in, someone AT gmail DOT com otherwise.

[[MailTo(someone AT gmail DOT com)]] 

Create a little box directing the user to a Stop page:


Other examples:

[[Note(This is a comment that won't print in the generated page)]]
