The GoogleDocTag extension inserts Google Docs into any wiki page.


  • Download and move the extracted GoogleDocTag folder to your extensions/ directory.
    Developers and code contributors should install the extension from Git instead, using:cd extensions/
    git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/extensions/GoogleDocTag
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'GoogleDocTag' );
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.


The most simple code is: <gdoc id="your-google-doc-id" />, which inserts the Google Doc into the page.

The tags also accept parameters "width" and "height" for setting the width and height of the displayed document. The defaults are 100% for width, and 1000px for height. An example using both width and height is: <gdoc id="your-google-doc-id" width="800" height="600" />
