The CountingMarker extension provides functionality for monetising a wiki with the Verwertungs­gesellschaft Wort (Copyright collective).


Anyone who is a member of the Verwertungs­gesellschaft Wort (Copyright collective) and operates a wiki faces several problems when they want to participate in the METIS programme, i.e. registering their online texts for monetization.

METIS stands for „Meldesystem für Texte auf Internet­seiten“ (“Reporting System for Texts on Internet Pages”). VG Wort requires a minimum length of the texts as well as a minimum number of article views (“hits”), which must be proven by the installation of “counting pixels” on the article page. For the installation of these pixels you can order “counting markers” from VG Wort, each of which consists of a set of public and private keys and a URL to a counting pixel on a VG Wort server.

A snippet of HTML code on how to include this counter in an HTML page is included. For web pages from the 1980s, which consisted of self-made HTML pages, it is a simple matter to insert this HTML code via copy and paste into the HTML code of the page. But how can these counters be integrated into modern content management systems, which in a very complex way assemble the pages finally delivered to the reader from database queries, templates and skins?

This task, as well as the administration of the counter marks, the assignment of the counter marks to the articles and the annual report to VG Wort are part of the functional scope of this enhancement.


  • ダウンロードして、ファイルをextensions/フォルダー内のCountingMarkerという名前のディレクトリ内に配置します。
  • 以下のコードを LocalSettings.php ファイルの末尾に追加します:
    wfLoadExtension( 'CountingMarker' );
  • 更新スクリプトを実行します。このスクリプトは、この拡張機能が必要とするデータベーステーブルを自動的に作成します。
  • Yes 完了 – ウィキの「Special:Version」に移動して、拡張機能が正しくインストールされたことを確認します。

MediaWiki 1.24以前を稼働させている利用者へ:

上記の手順では、wfLoadExtension()を使用してこの拡張機能をインストールする新しい方法を記載しています。 この拡張機能をこれらの過去のバージョン (MediaWiki 1.24以前) にインストールする必要がある場合は、wfLoadExtension( 'CountingMarker' );の代わりに以下を使用する必要があります:

require_once "$IP/extensions/CountingMarker/CountingMarker.php";

Since MediaWiki 1.25 the extension HitCounters should be installed to use the full range of functions. However, there is a basic version in which the HitCounters extension is not required.


The extension was tested with MediaWiki versions: 1.23, 1.25, (1.27), 1.31, (1.33), 1.35.16, (1.36), (1.37), 1.38.4, 1.39.4, 1.40


The extension is provided in "de", "en", "es".

There are minor issues, for example the sum of the hits of all articles in v1.25 and v1.27 is displayed incorrectly. However, since this only affects additional statistical information, which does not affect functionality, this is not a problem.

If you run a ウィキファミリー and manage the extensions centrally (via soft links), you have the problem that the メンテナンススクリプト of this extension are not found. Currently, to solve this problem, these maintenance scripts can be copy & paste into the maintenance folders of the MediaWiki installations.
