MediaWiki

I’ve made a few MediaWiki extensions. They can be installed by the administrator of any MediaWiki wiki.

Special:Update

Adds a new special page called Update which shows you which extensions are out of date, and also if MediaWiki, PHP or MySQL need to be updated.

Realnames

Attempts to replace any username links into realname links. This extension differs from other approaches in that it searches the page for links and replaces them, and does not rely solely on page hooks so should work in many more places. Compatibility with other extensions should also be very strong.
This means it works on:

  • Special:ListUsers
  • old and new Special:RecentChanges
  • Special:Search of the User: space
  • History of page
  • Revisions list of page
  • Revision view of page
  • Revision Compare
  • Page header + html title (limited)
  • and any page where user links are found

While the focus of the extension is for realname display, it can be co-oped to change the display of username links to anything desired (add an image? another class?). This makes it incredibly powerful.
It was developed mainly for Enterprise/Corporate users of MediaWiki where realnames are much more important, and often make much more sense than algorithmically chosen usernames. It can also be useful in communities where people like to go by their real names or where it makes more sense.
