Can I use some formula? (importrange?)

3 (talkcontribs)


I would like to pull only specific cells from the Google Sheet. Is it possible to use some formula to pull the data and display in wikimedia?

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone can suggest me some solution. Thanks (talkcontribs)

I suggest to do the sorting in a new sheet, and then, link this new sheet to your wiki.

File > Publish to Web...

And then, on my wiki (private), it is "Spreedsheat.google.com n'autorise pas la connexion" (in English: connection is not authorized).

How to fix it?

To fix extention to google's current URL format

1 (talkcontribs)

Open GoogleDocs4MW.class.php with a text editor and find line 32 and 33 which shjould be

               '" src="http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=' . $key .


and replace it with

              '" src="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/' . $key .


and save the file and the extention should now work

This doesn't seem to work for me: I've followed the install instructions and have double checked I'm using the right key, but all I get on my page is a blank box. Any suggestions? (talkcontribs)

I am having this same issue also in 2019

You'll need to edit the GoogleDocs4MW.class.php file. In the $output section (bottom) you'll need to replace the last two lines above the return $output;.

                                //'" src="http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=' . $key .

                                '" src="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/' . $key .



The old format no longer works: http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key= $your_doc_key &output=html&widget=true

The purpose of the change is to use the new format required by Google:      https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ $your_doc_key /htmlembed?widget=true

Did you ever get this to work?

Are URLs in form "http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=XXX" still valid?

I noticed that GoogleDocs4MW creates an iframe with an URL like this:


Is this kind of URL still valid in Google world? I can't make it working. The correct URL form for public Google spreadsheet seems to be this:

Will the wiki search index the Google sheet text?

Bibliovorous (talkcontribs)

Will the wiki's internal site search display results from the embedded Google sheet?

Linking to individual sheets

1 (talkcontribs)

Is there a way I could link to an individual Google Sheet in a wiki article? Now I'm aware I could just publish a single sheet of a multi-page spreadsheet, and only that sheet will show in a wiki article ... but what if I want to publish the entire doc, and only link to individual sheets? I see no "sheet" parameter or the like for this <googlespreadsheet> tag.
