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" }%

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.

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


2. Display Google's robot.txt file


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:
