New extension: Include WP
The extension does not import anything (so nothing is stored), but rather fetches content from the remote wiki every time the page is loaded. This means it takes a second or two for it to actually load, but ensures you got the latest content. Some clean up of the remote content happens and there are several options that allow you to customize how the included content is displayed. It makes use of the Validator extension.
- Include articles from Wikipedia or any other MediaWiki wiki into your pages.
- Show only a limited amount of paragraphs on page load, with an option to show the full article.
- Partial conversion to plain-text.
- Removal of templates (such as infoboxes), ref tags, comments, categories and images.
- Both internal and external links are rendered as plain-text.
- Tables, lists, table of content, section headers and more are retained.
- Usage of the MediaWiki Resource Loader when available with backward support for MW 1.16.x.
