The PageNotice extension provides a way to create a fixed notice messages on the top or the bottom of

  • a page (by individual page name), or
  • entire namespaces (by namespace number).

You can define new fixed MediaWiki messages by creating new pages following a special page-naming pattern to hold that message, and then creating your desired message as the contents of that new page:

Usage[edit | edit source]

  • top notice for page XXX goes in [[MediaWiki:top-notice-XXX]]
  • bottom notice for page XXX goes in [[MediaWiki:bottom-notice-XXX]]
  • top notice for pages in namespace NNN goes in [[MediaWiki:top-notice-ns-NNN]] (where NNN is the numeric namespace ID)
  • bottom notice for pages in namespace NNN goes in [[MediaWiki:bottom-notice-ns-NNN]] (where NNN is the numeric namespace ID)

This will put the phrase: "Welcome to this wiki - you can edit every page!" at the top of every page in the main namespace:

Create New Page, name:
[[mediawiki:top-notice-ns-0]]
Create new page contents:
Welcome to this wiki - you can edit every page!

This will put a blue banner saying "Welcome to this wiki - you can edit every page!" at the bottom of every page:

Create New Page, name:
[[mediawiki:bottom-notice-ns-0]]
Create new page contents:
{| cellspacing="5" cellpadding="0" style="margin:0em 0em 1em 0em; border:1px solid #1DA0E7; background:#B3DDF4;width:100%"
| ''''' Welcome to this wiki - you can edit every page!'''''
|}
Result looks like this:
Welcome to this wiki - you can edit every page!
