Special:FirstSteps is a spin-off from Translate: it guides the user through the steps of

  1. creating an account at Special:CreateAccount,
  2. configuring their primary language (and assistant language for Translate),
  3. creating a custom userpage (with Babel),
  4. requesting translator permission if not provided to all users

(depending on what was already done or not).


In its basic form, the extension assumes that the following is available:

  1. Babel (for user pages),
  2. LiquidThreads (with a LQT-enabled page or redirect at Project:FirstSteps),
  3. Extension:Translate (some steps would have to be skipped otherwise).
  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called FirstSteps in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/FirstSteps/FirstSteps.php";
  • YesY Done - Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
