Check usage and version matrix.

The GoogleDocs4MW extension embeds Google Docs' spreadsheets into the wiki.

Installation[edit]

  • 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' );
    
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Usage[edit]

Supported parameters are:

Name Default
width 500
height 300
style width:100%

As an example using all of 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.

Note[edit]

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