QED supports numerous types of extensions. One family of extensions involves the concept of folders, which allow distinctive web spaces to be created under the QED umbrella. For example, each folder can have its own logo, navigation menu, and set of rules governing access. See Folder-Based Access Restrictions.

QED also supports:

  • Google Maps and a "point-and-click" Google Maps editor
  • various extensions for embedding Flash animations and video, including Google video — see Help:Video
  • sortable tables — see Help:Tables
  • the Memorize extension for creating interactive flashcard quizzes and memory games
  • a "Category Query" feature that makes it easy to pose queries based on the semantics of the category-subcategory relationship and to create new query forms
  • the <javascript> tag for executing Javascript
  • the <php> tag for executing PHP (currently restricted to protected pages) — see phpinfo for an example

Plug-ins:

See also Help:Tags for plug-ins that provide special-purpose tags.
