This extension provides the ability to insert properly formatted user names with links to their respective user pages. Probably all wiki contributors have run across the following problem: the article text should make some reference to some other wiki user, but to do so properly ([[:User:username|full name]]) is tedious at best both because of the cumbersome syntax and possibly not knowing the username of a user whose full name is well known. This extention makes this task very easy by providing new wiki syntax to do so. Simply add ^^^user name^^^ and all the tediousness and guesswork is done. Moreover, the user name can be any of the following:
- wiki username
- user full name (first space last)
- last name of the user
- partial match of any part of user full name
