The MagicNoCache extension creates a new magic word __NOCACHE__ and disables the cache for any page in which it finds it. Thus it makes sure that specific pages never get cached as they get updated extremely frequently.

The extension will attempt to disable the caching of the page by calling the disableCache() function of the Parser object and also the enableClientCache() function of the OutputPage object ($wgOut)

Download[edit | edit source]

You can download the extension directly from the MediaWiki source code repository (browse code). You can get:

One of the extensions tags

Not all extensions have tags. Some extensions have tags for each release, in which case those tags have the same stability as the release. To download a tag

  • Go to the tags list
  • Click the name of the tag you want to download
  • Click "snapshot"
The latest version of one of the extensions branches

Each extension has a master branch containing the latest code (might be unstable). Extensions can have further branches as well.

  • Go to the branches list
  • Click the branch name
  • Click "snapshot"
A snapshot made during the release of a MediaWiki version.

This might be unstable and is not guaranteed to work with the associated MediaWiki version.

After you've got the code, save it into the extensions/MagicNoCache directory of your wiki.

If you are familiar with git and have shell access to your server, you can obtain the extension, with all its tags and branches, as follows:

cd extensions
git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/p/mediawiki/extensions/MagicNoCache.git

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Download and extract the files in a directory called MagicNoCache in your extensions/ folder. If you're a developer and this extension is in a Git repository, then instead you should clone the repository.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once( "$IP/extensions/MagicNoCache/MagicNoCache.php" );
  • Done! Navigate to "Special:Version" on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
