Translate the GoogleDocs4MW extension if it is available at translatewiki.net

Check usage and version matrix.

The GoogleDocs4MW extension allows to embed Google Docs' spreadsheets on the wiki via the <googlespreadsheet> tag.

This extension was inspired by the Wikia extension with the same name, but this extension was written back when Wikia wasn't open source.


Supported parameters are width (500 by default), height (300 by default) and style (width:100% by default). Usage example with all the parameters: <googlespreadsheet width="600" height="200" style="width: 50%">Google Docs' key goes here</googlespreadsheet>

To actually embed a spreadsheet, the spreadsheet needs to be published with Google's File > Publish to Web... option. It is not sufficient to just have a shareable link.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called GoogleDocs4MW in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    wfLoadExtension( 'GoogleDocs4MW' );
  • YesY Done - Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
