Embedding in wiki: a Mediawiki example

Our only experience so far with embedding in wiki is with MediaWiki.  To prep your MediaWiki site, be sure these three things are done:

  1. Install Widget Extension: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Widgets#Download_instructions
  2. Add iFrame widget: http://www.mediawikiwidgets.org/w/index.php?title=Widget:Iframe&action=edit
  3. Insert iFrame with the following code: http://www.mediawikiwidgets.org/Iframe

You will have to pull code from the "Embed Codes" dialog box to insert into your wiki site.  Be sure Language is set to HTML.

Here is how the embed code looks in MediaWiki.  Note that all the different pieces are pulled from the embed code box, just re-ordered and written for MediaWiki code.


This is how our sample page looks.  We used code similar to the above to create a full page of tiles.
