This took a while, but I've finally come around to make my first actually useful contribution. Please have a look at : [https://www.dokuwiki.org/template:ad-hominem](Ad-Hominem Template). I hope someone will find it useful :-)
Went to try this and it was loaded into the wrong directory and crashed my wiki. It took a bit of time to get it worked out.
Ups. I'm sorry! I need to check how to make sure it gets to the right place...
I tried to upload and indeed it tries to overwrite the dokuwiki template folder. How can I prevent this? Seems I must have missed some trick here :-/ anyone got an idea?
OK, found the culprit: apparently a leftover setting from the original dokuwiki template. I've created a new version which works fine now. Once again sorry for this.
