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

Allows you to compare wikis in two separate languages side by side. For an example, see http://fr.wikisource.org/wiki/Criton_(trad._Cousin)?match=en. See Wikisource:DoubleWiki Extension for more information.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Appending ?match=<lang code> (or &match=<lang code> ) to a url allows you to see a side by side comparision of a page with the same page in another language.

You can use an empty div with a title attribute (for example <div title="some title"/>) to force certain sections to line up.

This extension was made especially for Wikisource (see also bugzilla:4104). For full information on this extension, it is recommended you read the page at wikisource - oldwikisource:Wikisource:DoubleWiki Extension Comments/questions/etc should go on the Wikisource page.

Configuration parameters[edit | edit source]

This extension has no configuration parameters, but expects interlanguage links to be configured appropriately. See Interlanguage links and Manual:Interwiki#Interwiki_links_to_other_languages. You should ensure all your interlanguage (not interwiki) links are to websites you control, as this extension will load pages from these other language links.
