Prominently displayed on the first page of the wiki is:


Which is perfectly adequate for the purpose.

Adding a plug-in will only curse the creator with having to upgrade it
almost every time a new version of the wiki is installed, which should
be happening quite often to keep up with security patches.  Moreover, it
won't be any use unless people religiously enter complicated meta-data
-- the structure of which will almost certainly be inadequate the first
couple of times it's coded.
