If you get a message
The plugin manager was unable to decompress the downloaded file.
PHP's zlib module is not installed
Install PHP's zlib modules and restart the web server, e.g. with SUSE Linux 11.4:
yast -i php5-zlib /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
When trying to unpack, apache cannot overwrite mediasyntax' files because they have another user than apache.
Change the ownership of mediasyntax' folder, e.g. for SUSE Linux like this:
/srv/www/htdocs/dokuwiki-2011-05-25a/lib/plugins # chown -R wwwrun:www mediasyntax/
- To use tables in mediawiki syntax, install the exttab1 plugin.
- If you want the "edit" buttons to be above and not below the section to edit, install the editsections plugin.
- Test your installation by writing a new article starting with '''hello world'''. This should be displayed bold.
- Use the converter at mediasyntax/tools/dokuwiki2mediawiki.php to convert your existing pages.
- To get mediawiki's style, install the monobook skin
- Change your dokuwiki's editing help (wiki:syntax) to look like this
Syntax and usage
After installation, mediawiki syntax is used to display your pages. This also includes the #REDIRECT command.

It is tested with Dokuwiki 2009-12-25, 2010-11-07, 2011-05-25, 2011-11-10, 2012-01-25 and 2013-05-10.
The mediasyntax plugin is derived from the cool creole plugin, combined with the goto plugin, which is now the redirect component. To download mediasyntax' latest development code, open a Linux console and type
git clone git://github.com/tstaerk/mediasyntax.git
