The Wiki Forms plugin lets you build a simple HTML form on a WikiPage, and handle its posted data with a WikiPlugin. This can be useful if you wish to use your wiki as an interface for custom tasks. If we can make the plugin usable and safe enough, it could even help write JSPWiki administration GUI's.

See Wiki Forms Example for some bare bones documentation.

For JSPWiki pre-2.1.127...#

The forms source archive is attached. It contains a nice little WikiPage you can put under your own page repository for a quick demonstration of the plugin syntax. (The file size is fairly large, since it ended up including the dependency JARs in it.)

For JSPWiki post-2.1.127...#

Most of this (family of) plugin(s) have now been integrated into JSPWiki proper, the SubmitBugReport page uses it.

The McKessonApsWikiPlugins has added a FormDebugHandler, perhaps it could be added to the stock JSPWiki distro?

For JSPWiki post 2.2.0#

This feature is now included in the JSPWiki distribution, though syntax differs.


Does anyone have a complete list and explanation of all the syntax that can be used in the Wiki Forms Plugin? I would like to get a copy. Thank you! Bill Robfogel
