Clear message


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.

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 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

Information for system administrators

Needs admin rights.






This macro is used to make a link that displays an image (can be given as either attachment or URL) and links to either an URL or a wiki page. Optionally the size of the image can be adjusted. If no target is given the link will point to the image itself.

See /ImageLink

  • 1 the text cannot contain any wiki markup

  • 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.

  • 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.

Writing your own macro

Create a python file called located in your data/plugin/macro directory. Ensure it has a single method called execute(macroarguments), which is the entry-point.

All Macro instances have a request member through which you can access the form parameters and other information related to user interaction.

execute() should use the formatter to construct valid markup for the current target format. In most cases this is HTML, so writing a macro which returns HTML will work in most cases but fail when formats like XML or text/plain are requested.

For example, your wiki page has the following line on it:


You could write a file like this:

   1 Dependencies = []
   3 def execute(macro, args):
   4     return macro.formatter.text("I got these args from a macro %s: %s" %
   5     (str(macro), args))
