If you want to include contents of another page use:

[[include pagename]]


[[include :sitename:pagename]]

The include tag should start and end with a newline. [[include]] tags are parsed inside code blocks. To prevent an [[include]] tag from being parsed, put a space in front of it. This does make copy/paste of example code that contains [[include]] tags a problem.

The sitename can be a Wikidot subdomain (e.g. :www) or a full name, including a custom domain.

The [[include]] tag can also take parameters and substitute variables in the included source. To denote variables in the included page use:

{$var1}, {$number_books}, {$title}, {$variable_name}, {$variableName}

and in the including page use:

 [[include pagename
|title=Best Wiki Ever
|variable_name=just a variable
|variableName=another variable

As you can see you can split variable definitions over several lines for cleaner code.

NOTE: includes and images/files: The [[include]] works just by inserting the page source at a given place. If you have any images or files attached in the included page and you refer to them as [[image filename.jpg]] in the included page, please rather use the image/file source with the name of the page too, e.g. [[image included-page/filename.jpg]]

Includes across sites are called cross-site includes or CSIs. CSIs are a powerful way to link page templates and code from other sites.
