A methode to solve when not working with an android tablet browser

Chantoune (talkcontribs)

how to perform an update into PDFInclude.php to view the pdf on the android tablet (because pdf is not displayed or download in this case)

for memory I solved this problem in PDFEmbed as explain in the following post

and with PDFInclude I performed this modification


$ua = strtolower($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']);

     if(preg_match('/android/i',$ua)) {

      $myfile = "https://docs.google.com/gview?url=$obj&embedded=true";      

      return Html::rawElement('iframe', [

          'src' => $myfile,

        'height' => $height,

        'width'=> $width,

        'frameborder' => "1" ]  );

      } else {

         return pdfObject( $obj, $width, $height );


} else {

        return pdfError( "Path is not valid" );

ERROR : incompatibility with PDFEmbed extension

Chantoune (talkcontribs)

these 2 extensions uses the same tag <pdf> </pdf>

so we get error according to where the pdf file is located (internal to wiki : PDFEmbed) (external to wiki : PDFInclude)

So to prevent this incompatibility in the case of we have the 2 extensions installed

it is necessary for instance to update the tag as <pdfURL> in the delivery code of this extension PDFInclude.php

function pdfRegister() {

global $wgParser;

$wgParser->setHook( 'pdfURL', 'pdfInclude' );

return true;

1.4 beta is intended to handle template parameters. Unforunately when calling the recursive tag parser for this it will already create fully useable html code like <nowiki><a href='some url'> ...</a> and we only need the href part. So the current code is somewhat hacky by reversing the process and fishing the href part back from this anchor code. It works in our environment and so we decided to share it. I didn't find the signature in the editor so I am linking to my own user @Seppl2013 instead,

Preview works, but the attempt to save shows empty page

I followed the instruction: I saved the code as extensions/pdf_include.php At LocalSettings.php, I added the lines require_once("$IP/extensions/pdf_include.php"); $wgPDF = array('width'=>'width', 'height'=>'height', 'black'=>array('Blocked Domain','Blocked Domain 2.....')); $wgPDF['black'] = array('Blocked Domain','Blocked Domain 2.....'); //The best way to block Domains/Do only write the $ $wgGroupPermissions['*']['pdf'] = true; //Allow it for ALL/SHOULD NOT USED!!!!!!!!! $wgGroupPermissions['user']['pdf'] = true; //Allow it for USERS/MAYBE SHOULD NOT USED!!! $wgGroupPermissions['bot']['pdf'] = true; //Allow it for BOT/SHOULD NOT USED!!!!!!!!! $wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['pdf'] = true; //Allow it for SYSOP/STANDART

Then, I type simple code at http://mizugadro.mydns.jp/h/index.php?title=Testpdf&action=edit <pdf width="80px" height="100px">http://mizugadro.mydns.jp/MIZU/14bw.pdf</pdf> This code shows the preview, but the attempt to save hangs the brouser.

What do I wrong?
