Download and Installation

  • Warning: This plugin modifies event handler internals directly to make itself to be the first listener of TPL_ACT_RENDER_AFTER event. This hack makes the info always displayed before comments provided by Discussion plugin. Plugin was tested with latest stable release. When event handler code is changed in future DokuWiki release, its functionality may be lost.
