Please note that installation and/or use of this feature on a public wiki is a security risk. This feature should only be used on a private or intranet wiki where the environment is entirely trusted.


This plugin allows you to insert the contents of an external web page into a JSPWiki page.


The plugin uses HTTP 1.1 and supports a proxy server.

It supports X509 server certificates and client authentication.

It is possible to include only a part of the page and to replace or remove parts of it.

The plugin has a follow-links feature. This allows that all internal links from the page included will also be shown in the JSPWiki page when selected by the user. Even form answers from POST and GET requests will be shown inside the JSPWiki page!

With the help of the depth parameter you can specify how many link layers from the include page should be available and shown inside the JSPWiki page.

More Information and Download#

Detailed installation and usage instructions can be found on DataCore's Open Source Webserver in the JSPWiki InsertPagePlugin section. If you're interested in more, you can find other JSPWiki plugins on the JSPWiki page.


I'll have to try this when I get a chance, looks like ti could be useful. Especially to tie a wiki tighter to an intranet. Sort of woudl let the wiki be "portal-like". Maybe a better name would be something like HtmlScraperPlugin or something? ExtendedInsertPagePlugin is a bit unwieldy, and InsertPage is only for within one's own wiki. This is fundamentally different, so I'd reccomend a name change. Cool plugin. --JohnV

I installed this plugin and it didn't work on my v2.4.102 instance. Looked like the last work on this plugin was back in 2004. Also, there is no source accessable (the links are broken). I'll see if I can put something together. --DaveWolf

Dave, I've got most of an InterWikiPlugin complete, which would use XML-RPC to exchange information between JSPWiki instances (where both have XML-RPC enabled). The only issue is that I'd just gotten it running with the old XML-RPC code and haven't updated it for Janne's recent changes. My plugin implemented all the methods of the old XML-RPC RPCHandler — I'd got stuck dealing with multiple timezones for the InterWiki RecentChanges functionality. Even an InterWikiDiff is in the works. Not sure how long you can wait, but I'm likely to release an update in a month or two. -- MurrayAltheim, 25-Apr-2007
