Using Extensions


The PDFEmbed extension allows PDF files (uploaded to the wiki) to be embedded into a wiki page using <pdf></pdf> tags. The PDF file extension is automatically added and necessarily default permissions are configured. Future functionality will allow this extension to act as a media handler for PDF files.

Basic Usage

The PDF to be embedded must first be uploaded to the wiki through "Special:Upload". The namespace prefixed file name is then used between the tags to embed it in a page.


With optional width and height.

<pdf width="500" height="300">File:Example.pdf</pdf>

Scroll to page 10 after document is rendered.

<pdf page="10">File:Example.pdf</pdf>

Default Parameters: width="800" height="1090"


EmbedVideo will let you embed video content from numerous outside sources, as well as things like SoundCloud and Gfycat.

Basic Usage

Videos can easily be embedded with the <embedvideo></embedvideo> tag hook. The ID/URL goes as the input between the tags and parameters can be added as the tag arguments.

<embedvideo service="youtube">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSsYTj9kCHE</embedvideo>

Alternatively, you can also use the service id as the tag (assuming another extension isn't already using this tag).
