Thank you, I'll check it out!
I wear many hats. As you'd expect, this causes me to have “hat hair” quite often.

Subject: Question about configuring search
Hello,

I was wondering if it is possible to limit the search to only content on certain pages. I don't want to change the default "search" box that is found on the top of every page in my wiki, rather I would like to have a different type of search option on just a few certain pages only.

I have a page on my wiki that is full of useful information/comments and I'd like to be able to have a search box/configuration that is limited to only searching for content on that particular page.

Is this possible with DokuWiki?

Thank you,
Ben

Thank you, turnermm!

I'll add a custom CSS file and link it, that should be enough for what I need at this time.
I am using one of the included pre-installed templates (default) currently.

Have a great weekend,

Ben

Subject: Updating DokuWiki
Hello,

I recently migrated my wiki to DokuWiki and I am loving it so far. So clean, easy to use, but very powerful; thank you so much for working on this project and sharing it with us.

One question though, please.

What files get updated when future version of DokuWiki are released? What files will get overwritten and cause me to lose my custom changes?

I'm familiar with WordPress and child themes but I didn't know if I had to do something similar with DokuWiki. I didn't want to do all these edits and CSS/customization only to find out I'd lose them in a future update anyway.

Can you tell me what the best way is to go about customizing my DokuWiki without having to worry about issues with future updates overwriting my changes?

Thanks!

Ben

Hello,

What DokuWiki WYSIWYG editors have you tried?
I'm a new user and was curious if you could recommend any certain approach for edits.

Thank you!

Hello,

I just registered with the forum here and wanted to leave a quick message for everyone who has contributed to the DokuWiki project:
thank you so much!

I've recently switched to DokuWiki and I seriously could not believe how easy the install was, how simple and clear the admin/config process was, but also how powerful it can be with tons of customizing options. Then, there are plugins...

I'm so happy, no more headaches!
I just figured I'd say hello here and share my initial thoughts with you all.
