Include Topics and Web Pages Using %INCLUDE{...}% Variable

Use the %INCLUDE{...}% variable to embed the content of another topic or web page inside a TWiki topic. The whole content or only parts of a page can be included. If needed, set a proxy server in TWikiPreferences.

Syntax Example

%INCLUDE{ "page" pattern="reg-exp" rev="2" warn="off" section="clients" PARAMETER1="value" PARAMETER2="Some value"}%

The pattern parameter is optional and allows you to extract some parts of a web page. Specify a RegularExpression that scans from start ('^') to end and contains the text you want to keep in parenthesis, e.g., pattern="^.*?(from here.*?to here).*". You need to make sure that the integrity of a web page is not compromised; for example, if you include a table, make sure to include everything including the table end tag.

The example parameters PARAMETER1 and PARAMETER2 will be defined as a variable within the scope of the included topic. The example parameters shown will result in %PARAMETER1% and %PARAMETER2% being defined within the included topic.

VarINCLUDE explains the other parameters.

Note: All text of a topic is included unless it contains a %STARTINCLUDE% and %STOPINCLUDE%, or you specify a section parameter and/or a pattern parameter. A pattern will only search between %STARTINCLUDE% and %STOPINCLUDE%.

Usage Examples

1. Display regression test results in a TWiki page

  <pre>
  %INCLUDE{"http://domain/~qa/v1.1/REDTest.log.txt"}%
  </pre>

2. Display Google's robot.txt file

  %INCLUDE{"http://www.google.com/robots.txt"}%

3. Display the current time in Tokyo in a TWiki page

  • You type:
    • Tokyo: %INCLUDE{"http://TWiki.org/cgi-bin/xtra/tzdate?tz=Asia/Tokyo" pattern="^.*<\!--tzdate:date-->(.*?)<\!--/tzdate:date-->.*"}%
  • You get:
    • Tokyo:

Warning
This site does not allow %INCLUDE% of URLs

4. Include a topic MyTopic with two parameters

You include the topic with this line

  %INCLUDE{ "MyTopic" BETTER="apples" WORSE="Oranges"}%

An example of a very simple MyTopic could contain

   * I like %BETTER% better than %WORSE%.

The result would be

  • I like apples better than oranges.
