referenceno or pagean entity reference the reference of the entity to include. See the Model module to understand the concept of references.
typeyesdocumentdocumentthe type of the entity. This parameter is also only useful when used with the reference parameter. It's not needed when using the page parameter.

contextyesnew/currentcurrentdefines whether the included page is executed in its separated execution context or whether it's executed in the context of the current page. Deprecated since 3.4M1. Use display macro for context=new.


Example 1:

{{include page="Page1/Page2"/}}

Example 2 (if you want to include a page from another wiki):

{{include page="somewiki:Page1/Page2"/}}

Example 3:

{{include page="Page1/Page2" section="HMySection"/}}

Example 4 (using the reference parameter):

Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the manual method which involves dropping the JAR file and all its dependencies into the WEB-INF/lib folder and restarting XWiki.
