Check usage and version matrix.

The Bibtex extension is designed to parse bibtex sources and display them in web pages using the mediawiki engine. The bibtex code is placed inside <bibtex>...</bibtex> markup tags.


Amongst the embedded features there are :

  • ACM-like popup to display the bibtex sources,
  • Emacs-like mechanism to give the type of entries and the list of fields to fill in for each entry type,
  • References may contain URL tags which link to a pdf of the article itself,
  • Two versions, one working with restrict extension, allowing several levels of visualization ie reference can be viewable, whereas pdf or postscript file are restricted and not viewable for anonymous visitors.


  • Copy the downloaded files to a subfolder called BibTex in your extensions folder. The folder has to be called exactly BibTex, otherwise the extension won't work.
  • Add the following line to localsettings.php:
require_once ( '$IP/extensions/Bibtex/Bibtex.php' );

See http://simson.net/page/Mediawiki_Bibtex_Extension for further information on installing, customising and using the BibTex extension.
