This macro is used to Embed an Object into a wiki page-- objects being things usually handled by plug-ins, such as Flash, PDF, or movies. Optional size of the object could be adjusted. Further keywords are dependent on the kind of application.

If the attachment file isn't uploaded yet the attachment line will be shown.

(!) New in 1.6: MoinMoin has new (for some target types rather experimental) transclusion syntax like this: {{target|desc|params}}.

Enabling EmbedObject

EmbedObject is an included standard moin macro since version 1.5.4. However, for security reasons, mimetypes have to be specifically enabled in your to enable EmbedObject.

  1. In your file, under the "Content options" section, add the following lines:

        mimetypes_xss_protect = ['text/html', 'application/x-shockwave-flash', 'application/xhtml+xml',] 
        mimetypes_embed = ['application/x-dvi', 'application/postscript', 'application/pdf', 'application/ogg', 'application/vnd.visio', 'image/x-ms-bmp', 'image/svg+xml', 'image/tiff', 'image/x-photoshop', 'audio/mpeg', 'audio/midi', 'audio/x-wav', 'video/fli', 'video/mpeg', 'video/quicktime', 'video/x-msvideo', 'chemical/x-pdb', 'x-world/x-vrml',] 
  2. You should specifically add and/or remove content types from the mimetypes_embed to only those you need to use on your site. For example, if you need Flash, move the 'application/x-shockwave-flash' from the mimetypes_xss_protect to the mimetypes_embed line.
