BibtexFormfield Plugin

Adds a bibtex formfield type, which parses the field and extracts the keys into other formfields on the topic

Learn how to create your own plugin in DevelopingPlugins.


Plugin preferences should be set using configure, as described in DevelopingPlugins. You can also use preference settings to define any user-controllable configuration. You are strongly advised to use the name of the plugin as a prefix, to avoid the risk of namespace clashes with other extensions that may try to use the same name.

  • Set EXAMPLE = Example setting
  • Set FORMAT = %d-%m-%y


You do not need to install anything in the browser to use this extension. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the extension on the server.

Open configure, and open the "Extensions" section. Use "Find More Extensions" to get a list of available extensions. Select "Install".

If you have any problems, or if the extension isn't available in configure, then you can still install manually from the command-line. See http://foswiki.org/Support/ManuallyInstallingExtensions for more help.
