Check usage and version matrix; code metrics

The AdsWherever extension displays any advertising codes on your wiki page.


After setting the variable in $ad['name'] (see the code), insert a tag into anywhere of your page. Here is an example to insert the Google Adsense code:

To insert this tag:

<ads media=Goo1>

It will show the whole Google Adsense code.

Also try

<ads media=example /> 

where it shows the "Hello World" example as above.


  • Copy the code into a file and place the file(s) in a directory called AdsWherever in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once "$IP/extensions/AdsWherever/AdsWherever.php";
  • YesY Done - Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
