Macros allow the insertion of system features into normal wiki pages; the only thing that makes those pages special is that they contain macros. If you edit pages like RecentChanges or SystemInfo, you'll see what that means.

For more information on the possible markup, see HelpOnEditing and HelpOnMoinWikiSyntax.

Search macros

MoinMoin now uses a new search engine, that lets your make sophisticated searches using both the interactive search box or any of the search macros. For more help, see HelpOnSearching.




create an advanced search dialogue on the page. See FindPage.


create a search box on the page, which search the page titles. See FindPage.


create a search box on the page, which search the page contents.See FindPage.


print a list of pages whose content matches the current page title (like clicking on the page title). See CategoryCategory for example


print a list of pages whose content matches the search term.


Works like the FullSearch macro but caches the results statically. Use it if you prefer speed over an up-to-date result.


directly go to the page you enter. See FindPage.


print a list of pages whose title matches the search term. See HelpIndex.




a list of recently edited pages. See RecentChanges


an index of all page titles. See TitleIndex


an index of all words in page titles. See WordIndex


list links to non-existent pages. See WantedPages


list pages no other page links to. See OrphanedPages


list pages that were not edited for the longest time. See AbandonedPages

a list of all known InterWiki names.


info on the wiki, the python interpreter and the host system.


current page count. If exists is supplied as an argument, only existing pages will be shown.


list the sizes of all pages. See PageSize


shows statistical charts (currently defined types: hitcounts, pagesize, useragents, languages). See EventStats and subpages


Information for system administrators, see SystemAdmin. You need to be superuser to use this macro.


A list of system pages that were modified.


Shows wiki configuration settings which are either non-default or unknown. You need to be superuser to use this macro.


Shows all wiki configuration settings with descriptions.


List available Pygments lexers. See MacroMarket/HighlighterList for additional information.




<<Action(action [,text])>>

links to page with valid action, optional text could be used as alias. (action names are case sensitive). Example: <<Action(printPrint this page)>> will generate Print this page

(mainly intended for use on Help pages) Loads I18N texts. Example: "EditText" is translated to "EditText"


(mainly intended for use on Help pages or in generated output on wiki pages) loads I18N texts and replaces %s in the message by the arguments. The first character of the argument is used as the separator (in this example: a comma). You can escape the separator by using a backslash. Example: "<<GetText2(,[You may not read %s],FooBar)>>" yields "[You may not read FooBar]". For named placeholders, use "key=value" argument syntax, for example, "<<GetText2(,Upload new attachment \"%(filename)s\",filename=file.txt)>>" yields "Upload new attachment "file.txt"".


useful for intranet developer wikis, a means to view pydoc documentation, formatted via a XSLT stylesheet. See http://twistedmatrix.com/wiki/python/TeudProject


protect your email address from spam bots. See /MailTo

<<NewPage(PageTemplate,ButtonLabel,[ParentPage,@ME,@SELF] [,NameTemplate])>>

Allow the user to create (sub-)pages easily, using the page PageTemplate as the template for the new page and the string NameTemplate as a template for the name.3 @ME is used if you want the page created below the users homepage. @SELF is used to create a subpage below the page where it is called from.


Retrieve dictionary entries from dict pages. Example: If you have a page called GermanDict which contains the entry Test, you should see the translation here:


Displays a Calendar and creates link for entries to each day on subpages. See /MonthCalendar

  1. the text cannot contain any wiki markup (1)

  2. "timestamp" can be empty (current time), a number of seconds since 1970 (unix timestamp), or a W3C time specification ("2002-01-23T12:34:56"). See RFC822, sect. 5. (2)

  3. NameTemplate is formatted with time.strftime(), with the exception of %s which is replaced by the input into the edit box (which is only shown if necessary). If NameTemplate is not specified or empty, it defaults to %s. (3)
