This macro is only supported for use with syntax/1.0. It may work with the new rendering engine but you should use the new Include Macro instead.

This macro renders the specified XWiki page in its own context. If I create a DocumentA with content $doc.getName() then I create a document called DocumentB with content #includeTopic("DocumentA") When I view DocumentB the output will be DocumentA.

This differs from the Include In Context Macro and the Include Form Macro which render the included document in the context of the including document.



Where <pageName> is the name of the document to include, such as Main.WebHome

Parameters definition

NameOptionalAllowed valuesDefault valueDescription
pageNamenoa stringnoneA page name using the syntax described below

The pagename parameter may take the following form:


where optional parts are surrounded by brackets

  • If "wiki" is present, the "Space" and "Page" parts will refer to a document in the specified wiki (in the context of an XWiki farm).
  • If "Space" is present, then it will be used as part of the full page name, otherwise the space of the enclosing document will be used.


This macro may be used to display an XWiki page in another one. For instance, the page Community.IRC from this web site is included below.
