Extension to be used in user profiles, normally inside templates, in order to check whether that page belongs to a user within a certain group.


This parser tag should be used in a user profile page.

{{#checkgroup|{{FULLPAGENAME}}|nameofthegroup}} where nameofthegroup can be, for instance, sysop for wiki administrators.

Please, keep the first parameter always as {{FULLPAGENAME}}. With this, pagename + namespace of the current page is retrieved, which is used for checking whether the user belongs to a group specified in the second parameter.

In case of match, 1 is returned. If not, nothing is returned.

  • Example: {{#checkgroup|{{FULLPAGENAME}}|sysop}} This can be used to show in user profiles which users are wiki administrators.


To install this extension, add the following to LocalSettings.php:
