There are a couple of plugins which export to HTML. If you find another tool which converts those into CHM, you can use https://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:siteexport or https://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:nsexport (and probably some more).

Also relevant are other plugins which export into a different file format, like PDFs or ePubs. See https://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:bookcreator

Searching for "chm" on dokuwiki.org finds two relevant results: https://www.dokuwiki.org/tips which links to http://rules-of-thumb.com/DokuWiki2HtmlHelp and https://www.dokuwiki.org/tips:stickyexporthtml which doesn't produce CHM by itself but can be used in combination with a tool that does.

It would be good to define what "ADA compliant" means. Even though I am an accessibility specialist, I had to google the term to find out it's about accessibility. (But I work in the UK and we have different terms and laws.) Most people interested in the subject will probably not click on this thread because they don't know the term. I will rename the thread from "Is DokuWiki ADA Compliant?" to "Does DokuWiki meet any accessibility standards?".

ADA stands for "Americans with Disabilities Act".

I don't know much about this particular implementation of accessibility standards, but from what I found there is actually no definition of what "ADA compliance" means yet and it's still more or less open for interpretation of various lawyers. The act itself doesn't define it for websites but the Department of Justice is working on more specific regulations and guidance. But...

U.S. courts and the Department of Justice (DOJ) have frequently referenced the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA success criteria as a standard to gauge whether websites are accessible.
(from The ADA Checklist: Website Compliance Guidelines for 2019 in Plain English)

There have been new regulations in EU countries last year regarding web accessibility. Those say websites of public sector bodies must meet WCAG 2.1 AA. It would be great if DokuWiki could meet that as a minimum as it would meet legal requirements in various countries for various situations.

So, how accessible is DokuWiki?
When I've been working on DokuWiki (from 2005 to 2015) I've always tried to ensure things are made as accessible as possible. Since then I've learned much more about accessibility, though. And a couple of less accessible things have crept in since then as well.
I still bet DokuWiki is more accessible than most wiki engines.

Does DokuWiki meet WCAG 2.1 AA?
I doubt it. Again, I think it's better than most comparable tools. But it would be good to know exactly where it fails and do an audit and then fix things.
That's not just to ensure companies who are legally required to meet accessibility regulations can use DokuWiki, it might also increase DokuWiki's use and "market value". And even if not everything gets fixed, it's still good to include what is inaccessible in an accessibility statement.

I've been thinking of doing an audit for a while but am lacking time and motivation. I wonder if a crowdfunding campaign might motivate me...

A link would be very helpful, ideally to a page where this happens.
There is no template called "bitrix" on dokuwiki.org.

I wonder if  we could build a script to automatically take screenshots for all templates in [...] Something based on headless chrome could work...

Or our Browserstack account.

I initially planned to get many more templates onto demo.selfthinker.org, so that people can easily try out multiple templates. But lack of time and motivation...

I think it makes more sense to add the "responsive" tags to those templates. That makes it easier to discover and list them.

Eg. what your criteria was and listing the 16 templates that matched your criteria and so on?

That reminds me of my old template survey. I have a "responsive / mobile" column in that spreadsheet as well. It's too long ago but I think the way I determined it was simply by opening the syntax page, reducing the page width (so, no "true mobile") and manually checking how it looks.

Changes to existing files will get overwritten with updates. The best way is to create your own userstyle and add this:

  1. /* remove generated content from links */
  2. a.urlextern:after,
  3. a.interwiki:after,
  4. a.mail:after {
  5.    content: "";
  6. }

That will survive any updates.

It cannot be a problem of the cache. It is the same problem in all browsers on all devices.

There are different types of cache. turnermm was talking about DokuWiki's cache in your server's data/cache directory. The CSS gets rebuilt if you save your config settings. More about DokuWiki's caching.

I use the sectiontoggle plugin and the option `mobile_alt` was set to `dokuwiki`

That is so weird. In my opinion, the sectiontoggle plugin has no business having such an option as choosing a different template for mobile has nothing to do with toggling sections. :huh:

Just remove the FontFace Plugin. You don't need it when you've added all that manually.

A minimal solution is to adjust the text on the register page (register.txt) to say something like "by registering you agree to the terms and conditions". And then add a link to the terms and conditions which can be just a simple wiki page.

Modal popups are not very user-friendly and are difficult to make accessible.
