Details[edit | edit source]

These are alternate names for the primary localized namespace names, which are defined by $wgExtraNamespaces and the language file. If a page is requested with such a prefix, the request will be redirected to the primary name.

Set this to a map from namespace names to IDs. Example:

$wgNamespaceAliases = array(
        'Wikipedian' => NS_USER,
        'Help' => 100
    );

To add a single alias:

$wgNamespaceAliases['WP'] = NS_PROJECT;

If you need an alias for the project you probably need a similar alias for its talk page and you should add an array as above or two lines:

['WP'] = NS_PROJECT;
$wgNamespaceAliases['WP_talk'] = NS_PROJECT_TALK;

Note Note: Prior to MediaWiki 1.17, it was impossible to make an alias to NS_MAIN.

Do not use spaces[edit | edit source]

Use underscores instead of spaces in namespace names. 'My Namespace' is an invalid name; use 'My_Namespace' instead.
