The ParserFunctions extension enhances the wikitext parser with helpful functions, mostly related to logic and string-handling. Since MediaWiki 1.15, ParserFunctions has incorporated most (but not all) of the functions from the StringFunctions extension, which may be enabled or disabled (See the install instructions below).

For instructions on how to use this extension, see the ParserFunctions help page, and the StringFunctions page.

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Download and extract the file(s) in a directory called ParserFunctions in your extensions/ folder. If you're a developer and this extension is in a Git repository, then instead you should clone the repository using:
git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/p/mediawiki/extensions/ParserFunctions.git
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once "$IP/extensions/ParserFunctions/ParserFunctions.php";
  • Configure as required, e.g. if you want to use the integrated string function functionality, add just after that line:
$wgPFEnableStringFunctions = true;
  • Done! Navigate to "Special:Version" on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Configuration[edit | edit source]

$wgPFEnableStringFunctions
Allows to activate the integrated string function functionality (see StringFunctions). The default value is false.
$wgPFStringLengthLimit
Defines the maximum length of a string that string functions are allowed to operate on. The default value is 1000.
