What can this extension do?[edit | edit source]

This extension displays a list of users that contributed to an article. The list is sorted by number of edits and you can optionally set maximum number of users to display.

This extension was built for the WikiPathways project. You can find an example here.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Add this text to the page where you want to show the list of authors for:

<AuthorInfo limit="4"></AuthorInfo>

Download instructions[edit | edit source]

Download the following files:

And place them in $IP/extensions/ExtensionName/ExtensionName.php. Note: $IP stands for the root directory of your MediaWiki installation, the same directory that holds LocalSettings.php.

Installation[edit | edit source]

To install this extension, add the following to LocalSettings.php:

#add configuration parameters here
#setup user rights here
require_once("$IP/extensions/AuthorInfo/AuthorInfo.php");

Notes[edit | edit source]

There appears to be a typo in AuthorInfo.php which causes the incorrect path to be created for the javascript and therefore fails:

Line 6:

$wfAuthorInfoPath = WPI_URL . "/extensions/AuthorInfo";

Should be:

$wfAuthorInfoPath = $WPI_URL . "/extensions/AuthorInfo";
