This plugin allows embedding content from external sites on wiki pages.

Normally, the htmlscrubber does not allow the tags that are used for embedding content from external sites, since <iframe>, <embed>, and <object> tags can be used for various sorts of attacks. This plugin allows such tags to be put on a page, if they look like they are safe.

In the examples below, the parts of the html that you can change are denoted with "XXX"; everything else must appear exactly as shown to be accepted by the plugin.

This plugin is deprecated. Rather than relying on these complex lists of safe content, which constantly fall out of date, you're recommended to configure the htmlscrubber to not scrub some pages, which only trusted users can edit. Then you can embed anything from anywhere on those pages. See embedding content for details and examples. This plugin's lists of safe embedded content will not be maintained, and the plugin will be removed in a future release.

google maps

Use html like this to embed a map:

<iframe width="XXX" height="XXX" frameborder="XXX" scrolling="XXXX" marginheight="XXXX" marginwidth="XXXX" src=""></iframe>

(This method only allows embeddeding a simple map. To use the full Google Maps API from ikiwiki, including drawing points and GPS tracks on the map, try the googlemaps plugin.)


Use html like this to embed a video:

<object width="XXX" height="XXX"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param>
<embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="XXX" height="XXX"></embed></object>

google video

Use html like this to embed a video:

<embed style="width:XXXpx; height:XXXpx;" id="XXX" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="" flashvars=""></embed>
