Check usage and version matrix.

The CategoryStepper extension displays a category stepper box allowing one to navigate forward and backwards alphabetically through one or more categories a page is in, as specified via a MediaWiki: namespace page or the $wgCategoryStepper configuration variable.

Bugs and feature requests should be added to MediaZilla under the 'MediaWiki extensions' product and 'CategoryStepper' component.

Installation[edit source]

  1. Download the latest snapshot and extract it to your extensions directory.
  2. Add require_once( "extensions/CategoryStepper/CategoryStepper.php" ); to LocalSettings.php.
  3. Enjoy!

Configuration[edit source]

Two methods of configuring this extension are offered.

Array in LocalSettings.php[edit source]

Set the $wgCategoryStepper variable in LocalSettings.php to an array of category names to the title of the category box.

For example:

$wgCategoryStepper = array( 'Astronauts' => 'Astronauts Box Title' );

Message in the MediaWiki namespace[edit source]

Alternatively set $wgCategoryStepper = false; in LocalSettings.php, and edit the MediaWiki:Categorystepper page to set the categories.

For example:

* Astronauts|Astronauts Box Title

Usage[edit source]

The category stepper box will automatically appear on all pages that are within a category that is configured within the extension.
