To copy this widget to your wiki, cut and paste the entire source of the MediaWiki widget code page into a page called Widget:MediaWiki on your wiki.

If you don't have the Widget extension set up on your wiki, go to its description page on and follow the installation instructions.

SECURITY PROBLEM: ANY IFRAME CAN BE INTEGRATED In YOUR WIKI (with dedicated script js!), which avoid interest of Widgets!!!

This widget allows you to embed pages from MediaWiki wikis on your wiki page. Note that this kind of page inclusion should generally be avoided and is actually not good practice at all!

To insert this widget, use the following code:

{{#widget:MediaWiki|id=Observational astronomy}}


Widget for specific wiki

If you'd like to simplify process for including content from specific wiki, you can create a template that calls this widget with predefined baseurl parameter. See sample templates for AcaWiki, EoEarth, Citizendium, OpenWetWare, Scholarpedia, WikiEducator, Wikipedia.

Please avoid adding widgets for specific wikis.
