calendar directive is supplied by the [[!iki plugins/calendar desc=calendar]] plugin.
This directive displays a calendar, similar to the typical calendars shown on
\[[!calendar type="month" pages="blog/* and !*/Discussion"]]
\[[!calendar type="year" year="2005" pages="blog/* and !*/Discussion"]]
The calendar is essentially a fancy front end to archives of previous
pages, usually used for blogs. It can produce a calendar for a given month,
or a list of months for a given year. The month format calendar simply
links to any page posted on each day of the month. The year format calendar
links to archive pages, with names like
archives/2007 (for all of 2007)
archives/2007/01 (for January, 2007).
While you can insert calendar directives anywhere on your wiki, including
in the sidebar, you'll also need to create these archive pages. They
typically use this directive to display a calendar, and also use [[inline]]
to display or list pages created in the given time frame.
ikiwiki-calendar command can be used to automatically generate the
archive pages. It also refreshes the wiki, updating the calendars to
highlight the current day. This command is typically run at midnight from
An example crontab:
0 0 * * * ikiwiki-calendar ~/ikiwiki.setup "posts/* and !*/Discussion"
