I'm familiar with the WRAP plugin - familiar in that it is installed and in use, but I can't say I've explored all  possible  uses for it.

I don't think it'll do for a number of reasons.

Can you list those reasons?
It does create balanced as well as responsive columns.

If using column half or column third is not the right thing, try col2 to col5 or colsmall, colmedium and collarge.

Do you guys add pages or edit the pages in wiki namespace?

I've seen people add more stuff to the syntax page about syntax of plugins they have installed, for example. I've also seen people exchange the syntax page with another one in their language.

Please be aware that whenever you update your wiki, the pages that come with a wiki installation ('dokuwiki', 'syntax' and 'welcome') will be overwritten. But your old version should still be found in the old revisions and you can revert back to it.

damit ich mir mal an schauen kann ob das in etwa wie ein Mediawiki verwendbar ist

Was genau ist damit gemeint? "Wie ein Mediawiki" kann hunderte von Dingen einschliessen. Um welche Eigenschaften geht es genau?

Gibt es online irgend wo ein Dokuwiki was ein wenig wie Wikipedia aus sieht

Wenn es nur ums Aussehen geht, kann man ein DokuWiki genauso wie Wikipedia aussehen lassen. Das geht ganz einfach mit dem Vector-Template. Ganz unten auf der Seite gibt es viele Beispielseiten, die dieses Template nutzen, z.B. https://www.freibeuter.us/ oder http://readm3.org/.
Wenn es nur so ungefaehr wie Wikipedia aussehen soll, aber doch noch an ein DokuWiki erinnern soll, kann man auch das DokuBook-Template nutzen.

I'd vote for removing most of the content and just linking to the FAQ in the wiki. There is no need to duplicate things. If no-one objects within the next 24 hours, I'll go ahead and do that.

Done. (After a lot longer than 24 hours, sorry.)

Which FAQ page are you talking about exactly? Can you please post a specific link?

This here:  https://forum.dokuwiki.org/thread/702

Ah, I thought you meant the FAQ in the wiki.

I could fix that but I wonder why we have that forum thread in the first place? I wonder if we should just link to https://www.dokuwiki.org/faq instead?
As you can see it's a very old post. I wasn't aware that it would show as "important" at the top of the subforum. That's obviously not great if it's outdated.

I'd also find this feature very useful, although for different reasons.

I'm sure you could do something sophisticated with the changelog.
At the very least you could search for your username in those files.

I don't understand the question. Can you clarify please?
I'm confused because you are talking about the source code, so you will have the title right there.
And why do you want to change it?

As pop is reporting lots of spam, would it not make sense to give them admin permissions? Let me know if you're interested.

Are you?
Of course not. I'm not a coder.

That is pretty much irrelevant. There is a lot more to do on DokuWiki than just code.

Quote by StarArmy:
But the attitude that I see, which is essentially "if you don't contribute code, you don't matter"

Where did you see anyone say that or anything even remotely in that direction? (Apart from yourself, just now.)

Quote by StarArmy:
I think the real questions we should be asking is "what features and looks do 2019 users expect and desire in a new default style/template?" and how do we get there in 2020?

How do we get there is indeed the big question. Any ideas?

Quote by StarArmy:
To summarize what I've seen hj is saying "Here's a direction I think Dokuwiki should go" and the response from the creators is essentially "We've decided that the direction we are going is nowhere."

I don't interpret hj's words like a "should" more like a "wish" and an observation.
I don't interpret anyone's response as saying a) anyone has decided anything and b) certainly not to "go nowhere".

Quote by StarArmy:
More and more, the impression I get is that Dokuwiki's golden age is over.

Yes, the golden age is definitely over. But DokuWiki is not dead yet and is probably going to stay alive for a while.
Our last HackFest was in 2015 and even then we knew things were slowing down. Here is a presentation Andi did back then to discuss this problem.

Quote by StarArmy:
the lead devs are here saying essentially if you want a change, you'll have to do it yourself

That has always been the case. That is the reality of Open Source projects. They live from participation from the community. But if there are not enough people who want to give back, that's a problem.

Quote by StarArmy:
we're no longer putting in any major effort

Are you?

Another idea we had talked about was doing a showcase of "best templates" (and "best plugins"). Because this selection is bound to be biased, this was partly implemented by showing the popularity data and being able to sort by popularity.

Oh, and the sorting by compatibility (which roughly translates to when an extension has last been updated) and filtering out of extensions with security issues.

One of the things I appreciate about dokuwiki is that the resource site, dokuwiki.org, doesn't throw away old code. Early templates, early plugins...they're all still there, available for those who want them.  Too many software sites these days hide their legacy releases in obscure archives, or simple don't mention them. So kudos to DW.

But the downside of this is there is little separation of the new, modern and fresh from the positively dusty and historic (and may not work!)  And the dokuwiki.org home page hasn't changed in....how many years?

I agree that especially old templates and plugins are quite harmful, notably those that don't work anymore and make people be frustrated and think DokuWiki itself is outdated.

We have discussed this before (can't find it right now). I don't think we should completely remove pages, but remove extensions' meta data, so they don't appear in the templates/plugins' page anymore.
The main problem is that no-one is doing that. This would be a good content-only project for someone to help out who isn't a developer.
