Plugin Include

Use this wiki plugin to include the contents of a Wiki page inside another page (it must be a Wiki page located in the Wiki section of your Tiki, as other types of pages won't work yet!). This is a form of Wiki transclusion


Introduced in Tiki 1. Required parameters are in bold.

Option to show the replace page icon, for the included page to be replaced by original wiki text. Depends on the "edit icons" settings.

This example transcludes (or includes) portions of the page Tiki2 between the strings Authentication and OpenID.

This code:

{include page="Tiki2" start="!!!# Authentication" stop="!!!!# OpenID"}

Would produce on this site:

Authentication has received a major enhancement.

Some new options

  • Use login as email
  • Crypt passwords method
  • User trackers at registration

 Partial inclusions
start and stop must represent the entire line, not just a portion of a line.


You can not include a same page or a same page extract more than 5 times on one page. If you need to exceed 5 times you will have to modify the plugin and change the value of max_inclusions . Starting in Tiki 18.2, there is a parameter to do so.
