  • User-defined Wiki macros
  • Links to files
  • Warning, notice and tip blocks
  • External Wiki links to Wikipedia, Google etc
  • Smileys including (!) and (?)
  • Conditional macros allowing to disable/enable content depending on date or project version

  • etc.

Note, that WikiNG is not known to be compatible with Markdown.

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.
