CSI's in general

CSI stands for Cross Site Include. So it works like a simple include like where you want to include some page as part of an other page. If you know what this means, this explanation is off course stupid but maybe you don't know.

For example you make a page (page 1). Now for some reason on an other page (page 2) you created, you wanted to have that same information as on page 1 plus some extra information. So you would only put the extra information on page 2 and you would include page 1.

So you need to see the CSI as a piece of wikidot-syntax that you can include in other pages.

Most includes pass variables to the page that needs to be included. So you also need to know how to do this.

You write that you made something in javascript… Well as you know inside wikidot pages javascript can only run in an Iframe. So it will always be impossible to affect regular wikidot syntax with javascript. In the other direction it will work but then you need to pass variables with your include.

Maybe it would help if you explaned what you wish to do.
The first step you need to do is to make it work in a local site, then it will only be a matter of some small adjustments to change it to a CSI…

Does it work on a local site?
