Subject: Login throws a blank bage - how do I get to plugins page to uninstall?
Hello, I am new to Dokuwiki so please be patient!!

I have installed successfully. I made the mistake of installing some pluguns including the DirectoryList plugin - silly I installed several without testiing each separately, trying to move too fast! This had thrown various warnings so I want to uninstall. However when i log in I just get a blank page: https://www.screencast.com/t/6lLTXRl705rZ

How do I know if I am logged in? And how can I get to the plugins page to uninstall?




Thank you

UPDATE: having read up about plugin installation - although nthing specific about uninstalling - I understood that in most cases it it simply a folder in the plugin folder. So I have removed the Directory List folder. This has revealed other problems which I will log as a new thread.

What i haven't established is how to know if I have logged in successfully - given that I get a blank page.

A plugin is always a subfolder called like the plugin name in the plugin folder. So if you get a blank page as you had, this is the easiest way to get the wiki back working.
