Outputs the external file's content.
Download & Release Notes
refactored Albert Ma's original implementation
You must know which coding is used for the content of your file and give it to the macro for correct decoding (default: utf-8 - works for utf-8 and also for pure ascii).
If your file is utf-8 with BOM and you want to get rid of the BOM, use utf-8-sig as coding.
To make this work, you must edit your wiki config and add a line like this to the config section:
IncludeExternalFileRoot = "E:/LocalExternalDataFileFolder"
It points to point to the storage location of any files on the server that you wish to include using this macro.
You can include arbitrary html files using this macro, the macro just uses the html file's content "as is" (aside from decoding it).
So, if the file contains html not suitable for embedding into a wiki page at the place you use the macro, you might destroy correct layout of the page.
Your file must not contain <html> / </html> and similar tags for obvious reasons.
As your file can contain arbitrary html, you should only make this macro available to trusted users (that means all users of your wiki need to be trusted if you install this macro).
Also, make sure that the files that can be used with the macro only contain trusted html made by trusted people / from trusted data sources.
<<IncludeExternalFile(data.html)>> <<IncludeExternalFile(data.html, utf-8)>> <<IncludeExternalFile(data.html, utf-8-sig)>> <<IncludeExternalFile(data.html, utf-16-le)>> <<IncludeExternalFile(data/file.txt)>>
