|Translate the CloneDiff extension if it is available at translatewiki.net|
The CloneDiff extension lets you compare pages on the local wiki to pages in one or more "clone wikis" - wikis that have some of the same page structure, though with possibly different contents in the pages. For pages that are different (or when the page only exists in the remote wiki), the extension lets you also import the current text on the remote wiki into the local wiki.
- Download and place the file(s) in a directory called
- Add the following code at the bottom of your
wfLoadExtension( 'CloneDiff' );
- Configure as required.
- Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
You then need to add one or more values for $wgCloneDiffWikis in order to use the extension. Each such value has to be an array of three elements: 'name', 'API URL' and 'URL'. Here is one example:
$wgCloneDiffWikis = [ 'name' => 'My Example Wiki', 'API URL' => 'https://example.org/w/api.php', 'URL' => 'https://example.com' ];
The 'clonediff' permission lets you dictate who can access the page Special:CloneDiff. By default, only administrators can. To enable, for instance, all users to access that page, you could add the following to "LocalSettings.php":
$wgGroupPermissions['user']['clonediff'] = true;
If you are an administrator, you can make use of the CloneDiff functionality by simply going to the page "Special:CloneDiff" and following the instructions.
