The PDFEmbed extension allows PDF files (uploaded to your wiki) to be embedded into a wiki page using <pdf></pdf> tags. The PDF file extension is automatically added and necessarily default permissions are configured. Future functionality will allow this extension to act as a media handler for PDF files.

Installation[edit]

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called PDFEmbed in your extensions/ folder.

Configuration[edit]

If the default configuration needs to be altered add these settings to the "LocalSettings.php" file below the require:

// Default width for the PDF object container.
$wgPdfEmbed['width'] = 800;

// Default height for the PDF object container.
$wgPdfEmbed['height'] = 1090;

Usage Example[edit]

The PDF to be embedded must first be uploaded to the wiki through "Special:Upload". The namespace prefixed file name is then used between the tags to embed it in a page.

<pdf>File:Example.pdf</pdf>

With optional width and height.

<pdf width="500" height="300">File:Example.pdf</pdf>

Scroll to page 10 after document is rendered.

<pdf page="10">File:Example.pdf</pdf>
