The TitleKey extension provides a case-insensitive title prefix search. It uses a separate table for the keys, so if it works cleanly it can be deployed without an expensive rebuild of core tables, and dumped when Wikimedia gets a nicer backend through Extension:LuceneSearch (pre 1.13) or Extension:MWSearch (1.13+).
For the average site administrator, the benefit of this extension is that it allows search suggestions (e.g. from Opensearch API) to be case-insensitive.
Installation[edit | edit source]
- Download and extract the file(s) in a directory called
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/TitleKey.git
- Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once "$IP/extensions/TitleKey/TitleKey.php"; $wgEnableMWSuggest = true; #Not needed if using MediaWiki 1.20+
- Run the update script which will automatically create the necessary database tables that this extension needs.
- Run the rebuildTitleKeys.php script (this requires command-line access):
- Done! Navigate to "Special:Version" on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
Troubleshooting[edit | edit source]
If you put, e.g.,
require_once( "/home/stauffenbergssh/extensions/TitleKey/TitleKey.php" ); you might get "Failed opening required '/home/stauffenbergssh/extensions/TitleKey/../../maintenance/Maintenance.php'"". To fix it, you would put a copy of the Titlekey directory under your wiki extensions folder (rather than in an extensions folder outside of webroot).
|This extension is being used on one or more Wikimedia projects. This probably means that the extension is stable and works well enough to be used by such high-traffic websites. Look for this extension's name in Wikimedia's CommonSettings.php and InitialiseSettings.php configuration files to see where it's installed. A full list of the extensions installed on a particular wiki can be seen on the wiki's Special:Version page.|
