Note: If the colorcode='true' parameter setting is used, the Color Code should be installed.


  • Download the distribution jar(info) into the local JSPWiki/WEB-INF/lib directory.
  • Either invoke with full package name, or add to JSPWiki/WEB-INF/ plugin search path:
jspwiki.plugin.searchPath = ...,lu.intrasoft.jspwiki.plugin, ...
