50px Template documentation

This template should be added to all extension pages on this wiki (but only the main page). It will add a useful infobox (see below) and will automatically add the extension to Category:All extensions , along with the appropriate status and implementation type categories.

Content parameters

This section describes parameters that govern infobox content. For help with templatemode and other control parameters, please see Control parameters.

Content parameters
Parameter Description
namename of the extension
statuscurrent release status

One of:

  • [[:Category:Unstable extensions{{#translation:}}|unstable]] (broken - do not use this extension)
  • [[:Category:Experimental extensions{{#translation:}}|experimental]] (early stages of development, may change drastically)
  • [[:Category:Beta status extensions{{#translation:}}|beta]] (stable but not fully tested)
  • [[:Category:Stable extensions{{#translation:}}|stable]] (stable version)
  • [[:Category:Not LTS ready{{#translation:}}|unmaintained]] (unmaintained - previously claimed to be stable, now unmaintained)
  • [[:Category:Archived extensions{{#translation:}}|archive]] (archived - deprecated or merged with another extension)
  • [[:Category:Extensions with unknown status{{#translation:}}|unknown]] (default)

If the status is anything other than the above, it will be ignored and the default value of 'Unknown' will be displayed in the template instead. In cases where the value is omitted, it will be categorized as unknown. In cases where the value is invalid, it will be placed in a special category so that the error can be caught and fixed.

implementation type

The implementation strategy(s) employed in building this extension. This parameter is used to create categories that help programmers find examples of various MediaWiki specific implementation strategies or patterns. Although the values of this parameter sometimes coincide with the use case or purpose of an extension, that is not reason for this parameter. If the values you have chosen for this parameter do not adequately identify the purpose or possible use cases, we recommend you add additional category links as needed.

Legal values for the type1, type2, ... parameters are:

  • [[:Category:Parser extensions{{#translation:}}|parser]] - catchall for uncategorized parser extensions. If you have written a parser extension, please use one of the following more specific types:
    • [[:Category:ContentHandler extensions{{#translation:}}|contenthandler]] - Extensions using ContentHandler .
    • [[:Category:Link markup extensions{{#translation:}}|link]] - customized link markup, e.g. [[...]]
    • [[:Category:Parser function extensions{{#translation:}}|parser function]] - custom parameterized template markup, e.g. {{#name: ... }}
    • [[:Category:Tag extensions{{#translation:}}|tag]] - custom XML tag markup, e.g. <tagname>...</tagname>
    • [[:Category:Variable extensions{{#translation:}}|variable]] - custom unparameterized template markup, e.g. {{NAME}}
    • [[:Category:Extended syntax extensions{{#translation:}}|extended syntax]] - Extensions that add non-standard wiki syntax (i.e. not tags, parser functions, or variables).
  • [[:Category:User access extensions{{#translation:}}|access]] - catchall for user access extensions, that is, extensions that create, authenticate, grant permissions, revoke permissions, or monitor the activity of users. If you have written an access extension, please use one of the following more specific types:
    • [[:Category:User activity extensions{{#translation:}}|user activity]] - extensions that monitor user activity (logins, logouts, new user creation, etc.)
    • [[:Category:User identity extensions{{#translation:}}|user identity]] - extensions that create and delete users, and/or verify the identity of a user
    • [[:Category:User rights extensions{{#translation:}}|user rights]] - extensions to the rights management system, e.g. changes to the way rights are assigned, API, maintenance tools (does not include extensions that merely name the rights needed to use the features of that extension; for this purpose use the rights parameter)
  • [[:Category:User interface extensions{{#translation:}}|interface]] - catchall for uncategorized user interface extensions.
    • [[:Category:Media handling extensions{{#translation:}}|media]] - extensions that permit the embedding of multimedia content on wiki pages by registering a file extension with $wgMediaHandlers .
    • [[:Category:Personalization extensions{{#translation:}}|mywiki]] - extensions that provide infrastructure so that users may personalize their MediaWiki experience and/or assist in the management of that infrastructure
    • [[:Category:Notification extensions{{#translation:}}|notify]] - extensions that email users, broadcast messages and provide other forms of community notification
    • [[:Category:Page action extensions{{#translation:}}|page action]] - extensions that enhance or modify page actions. This includes anything that implements an action that reads, writes, searches for, creates, renames, deletes, redirects or discusses a page. It does not include rights (use user rights) or logs (use user activity).
    • [[:Category:Search extensions{{#translation:}}|search]] - extensions that search through and select articles for users.
    • [[:Category:Skin extensions{{#translation:}}|skin]] - extensions adding CSS or JavaScript, or implementing hook functions to change the look and feel of MediaWiki via the skins framework.
    • [[:Category:Ajax extensions{{#translation:}}|ajax]] - extensions that use Ajax programming techniques.
    • [[:Category:Special page extensions{{#translation:}}|special]] - extensions that subclass the Sjabloon:Class doclink class, use one of its hooks, or patch one or more functions in SpecialPage.php. See Special:MyLanguage/Manual:Special pages for more information.
  • other
    • [[:Category:API extensions{{#translation:}}|api]] - extensions that add a new API module or extend a core API module.
    • [[:Category:Hook extensions{{#translation:}}|hook]] - Hook extension - defines a new hook - see hook1, etc. below if you want to define hooks used by your extension
    • [[:Category:Database extensions{{#translation:}}|database]] - adds tables and/or fields to the database backing a MediaWiki installation
    • [[:Category:Data extraction extensions{{#translation:}}|data extraction]] - Data extraction
    • [[:Category:File repository extensions{{#translation:}}|filerepo]] - extension that adds new file repository types as file backend
    • [[:Category:Extension examples{{#translation:}}|example]] - Not a real extension, but an example of how to write one

Any other value for 'type' is invalid, and will cause the extension to be placed in [[:Category:Extensions with invalid or missing type{{#translation:}}]].

Note: Many extensions have more than one type, if this applies to yours, replace |type= with |type1=|type2=|type3=.... You may define up to six types for an extension.
name of each hook used by the extension

Entering values in this field is a good way to get exposure for your extension and help other developers. Each documented hook will automatically add the extension to a category listing extensions that use that hook. This category is autolinked to each hook article so that programmers can easily find examples of extensions that use a particular hook.

For built-in hooks:

  • use the hook name alone. Please see Manual:Hooks for values (but omit introductory '/').

For custom hooks defined by extensions:

For multiple hooks, assign the first hook to hook1, the second to hook2 and so on.
name of each hook provided by the extension You might also want to add the hooks to Extension hook registry.
usernameThe author's username on (if they have one). May be omitted, but if present it will be used to link to the author's user & user_talk page. It should be provided without namespace and without [[]]s.
authorThe extension author's name, if different from their username. Free text. If omitted then the 'username' field will be used (if present).
descriptionshort description
imagescreenshot or logo of extension. It should be provided without namespace and without [[]]s.
imagesizefacultative, size of the image (default size is 220px)
versionlast version
updatedate of the last update
compatibility policycompatibility policy (accepted values are master and rel). (backlog )
mediawikirequired version of MediaWiki
phprequired version of PHP
needs-updatephpYes indicates that the extension requires a database table schema change or a similar action, before the MediaWiki can run. It is a common pitfall: your MediaWiki will stall, if you forgot to run update.php - if the extension requires it. No should be set as a value since this assures that the extension does not need update.php to be run and thus avoids uncertainty

Extensions which conform to MediaWiki extension standards come with a schema change script which you need to start manually (once) before starting and accessing the MediaWiki through your browser, and after you copied all the extension files to $IP/extensions/ExtensionName and inserted wfLoadExtension( "ExtensionName"); into "LocalSettings.php", run from the command line:

cd path/to/wiki_install_directory
cd maintenance
php update.php
composerIf applicable the name of the "vendor" as well as the "package" should be entered in the format vendor/package, e.g. mediawiki/semantic-media-wiki to point people directly to, which serves as the package archive.
name of each non-core table used by the extension Links to a subpage of your extension page. For instance, "table1 = cu_changes" at Extension:CheckUser will link to Extension:CheckUser/cu_changes table. Don't list core tables such as page or revision; only list tables that are added by extensions.
licenselicense governing use of this extension, as one of the codes found in, e.g. GPL-2.0-or-later, GPL-2.0-only or GPL-3.0-or-later, etc.
downloadlink to the download : Git, {{WikimediaDownload}} with server=svn in case it was not migrated from Subversion. If you put the code into page in the MediaWiki wiki, link to it using a full page name and section name, e.g. [[Extension:Example/version_1.22a#Code]] (it must remain valid when bot-copied elsewhere)
readmeexternal link to the readme file, e.g.;master;README
changelogexternal link to the changelog file, e.g. Extension:LDAP Authentication/Changelog
parametersavailable parameters for LocalSettings.php
tagsany tags your extension uses (e.g. <tag1>, <tag2>).
rightsrights added by the extension. Not to be confused with the license! Rights are such as makebot or desysop, not such as GFDL or LGPL or GPL - those are licenses!
namespacenamespace in which this extension is used
exampleexample, website or screenshot of working extension
compatibilityAdditional compatibility information, for instance compatibility charts (formerly using Template:Extension Testing). It's encouraged to add any client-side compatibility information here too, especially when diverging from expectations of full support for a browser.
translateOptional parameter to link the exact page where (message group id with which) the extension will be translatable on if enabled. If the default link is incorrect, manually set it to:
  • ext-LOWERCASE(NOSPACES(Label as defined in config)), aka
  • the parameter you get in the URL after
bugzillaBugzilla MediaWiki extension component name
phabricatorPhabricator project name
CheckUsageNameOverrideoverride the page name used for the check usage link.

Control parameters

Control parameters
Parameter Description
templatemodeControls auto-categorization of host page.

Normally left blank. Alternate values are:

  • nocats - suppresses categorization and the 'check usage' link. Use this value if you are adding this template to subpages of an extension or to how-to documentation of extensions. For example, the usage image above sets templatemode=nocats because this isn't an actual extension page and we don't want to add this page to any categories on account of it.
  • nousage - suppresses the 'check usage' link. Link is also suppressed if the page is a subpage; it is not in the Extension: namespace; or if suppressed by 'templatemode=nocats'

If this is left blank, this template will add the host page to [[:Category:All extensions{{#translation:}}]] and to one or more additional categories, depending on the values assigned to the Content parameters.

Using the infobox

Existing extension pages

If you want to add the infobox to an existing page, copy and paste the code at the top of this page.
