User guide[edit]

See Help:Extension:FileAnnotations


  • Download and move the extracted FileAnnotations folder to your extensions/ directory.
    Developers and code contributors should install the extension from Git instead, using:cd extensions/
    git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/extensions/FileAnnotations
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'FileAnnotations' );
  • Extension:EventLogging is required for this extension to work.
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

The instructions above describe the new way of installing this extension using wfLoadExtension(). If you need to install this extension on these earlier versions (MediaWiki 1.24 and earlier), instead of wfLoadExtension( 'FileAnnotations' );, you need to use:

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

Vagrant installation:
