The PDFEmbed extension allows PDF files (uploaded to your wiki) to be embedded into a wiki page using ‎<pdf>‎</pdf> tags. The PDF file extension is automatically added and necessarily default permissions are configured. Future functionality will allow this extension to act as a media handler for PDF files.


  • Die Erweiterung herunterladen und die Datei(en) in ein Verzeichnis namens PDFEmbed im Ordner extensions/ ablegen.
  • Folgenden Code am Ende deiner LocalSettings.php -Datei einfügen:
    wfLoadExtension( 'PDFEmbed' );
  • Konfiguriere nach Bedarf
  •   Erledigt – Zu Special:Version in dem Wiki (bei Einstellung auf deutsch nach Spezial:Version) navigieren, um die erfolgreiche Installierung der Erweiterung zu überprüfen.


If the default configuration needs to be altered add these settings to the "LocalSettings.php" file below the require:

// Default width for the PDF object container.
$wgPdfEmbed['width'] = 800;

// Default height for the PDF object container.
$wgPdfEmbed['height'] = 1090;

//Allow user the usage of the pdf tag
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['embed_pdf'] = true;


The PDF to be embedded must first be uploaded to the wiki through "Special:Upload".


With optional width and height.

<pdf width="500" height="300">File:Example.pdf</pdf>

Scroll to page 10 after document is rendered.

<pdf page="10">File:Example.pdf</pdf>
