Wiki Embed

Description

The Wiki Embed’s intent is to help create a (http://wiki.ubc.ca/Resource_Management_Framework “Resourse Management Framework”).

This plugin will pull content from any Media Wiki website (Such as wikipedia.org).
It strips and reformats the content, allowing you to supply some arguments to dictate how this works.

Usage

Wiki Embed is implemented using the shortcode [wiki-embed]. It accepts the following arguments:
* url: (required) the web address of the wiki article that you want to embed on this page.
* no-edit: Hide the “edit” links from the wiki.
* no-contents: Hide the page’s contents box.
* no-infobox: Hide any infobox that appears on the wiki for this page.
* tabs: Replaces the sections of the wiki article with tabs.
* accordion: Replaces the sections of the wiki article with an accordian. This option cannot be used as the same time as ‘tabs’.

Example;
[wiki-embed url=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Example” no-edit no-contents no-infobox accordion]

Configuration

Settings for the plugin can be found in ‘Wiki Embed’ -> ‘Settings’.
Here you can enable/disable various features, define shortcode defaults, and configure some global settings for the plugin.
