This is a handy plugin with which you can include another wiki page into the current one. Just including certain sections of a page or even whole namespaces is supported, too.

This will include the section about tables of the syntax page.

This will include the page blog:mypage and show the tags from the tag plugin and the number of comments from the discussion plugin. Both plugins need to be installed for this example.


This will include all pages with the tag testtag, the tag plugin needs to be installed for this example.

You can make a page which list all linked pages of a category, called a 'tag'. For example, add at the end of your page

{{tag> Tag1}}

Then when you will want to retrieve all tagged pages, simply put in the category page.


Of course you can have multiple tags to a page :

{{tag> Tag1 Tag2 Tag3}}

See the documentation for all Options.

  • translated pages need to have the same pagename as the main language page
