  • User-defined Wiki macros
  • Links to files
  • Warning, notice and tip blocks
  • External Wiki links to Wikipedia, Google etc
  • Smileys including (!) and (?)

Good, but on my installation it causes the problem with standard wiki help button. Smiles do not work. Tip does not work properly on >2.4.3
Upd: in 1.0.0 all fixed, 5 stars. But notice function not compatible with Circle CRM theme.
