WelcomeWiki Lite

WelcomeWiki Lite lets users embed an entire MediaWiki page or a section from a MediaWiki page into their WordPress or non-WordPress site.


WelcomeWiki Lite accepts the following arguments: * url: (required) the web address of the wiki article that you want to embed on this page. * Remove links and [1]: Hide "edit" and references from the wiki. * Remove content index: Hide the page's contents box. * Remove right column index box: Hide right column from wiki pages. * Remove images and captions: Hide images and captions.

Settings for the plugin can be found in 'WelcomeWiki Lite' -> 'Settings' on the dashboard.

Using the plugin on the dashboard generates as shortcode [welcomewikilite] in the right column upon Save. This shortcode is copied and pasted into a post or page.

The plugin may also be used directly within the post or page editor by clicking the link "WelcomeWiki Lite" to the right of the "Add Media" button above the content editor. When using the plugin in this fashion, a popup window opens in the post or page editor that offers the same settings and embed options as those offered in the dashboard. A button inside the pop-up window named "Insert into Post/Page" places the shortcode and associated settings directly into the page or post for display.

A second display option that can be used from a Page or Post editor page is the shortcode [welcomewikiliteform].

By placing [welcomewikiliteform] directly into a post or page and saving, a web form page is created that is a graphical front end view of the dashboard and [welcomewikilite] editor functions. This graphical web form does not generate a shortcode for embedding. Rather, it generates a js script which may be used in any web framework. This graphical view and its js processor may be seen as a screen shot Webform.png.

Setting options are available at the dashboard, on the post/page editor popup [welcomewikilite] or on the [welcomewikiliteform] graphical web form. Settings enable users to select an entire wiki page or a section for embedding.

Example: [welcomewikilite wikiurl="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wales" sections="Etymology of Wales" settings="1,2,3"]
