Translate the FixedHeaderTable extension if it is available at translatewiki.net

The FixedHeaderTable extension fixes the header of tables contained within the <fixedheadertable> tag.


This extension assumes the table markup is formatted line-by-line, with header markup (!) used for header cells as shown in the example below:

<fixedheadertable fixedcolumns="1">
{| class="wikitable"
! Header 1
! Header 2 
| Cell 1
| Cell 2
| Cell 3
| Cell 4


  • fixedcolumns="3"
    This parameter specifies the amount of columns to fix, counting from the left.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called FixedHeaderTable in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php :
    require_once "$IP/extensions/FixedHeaderTable/FixedHeaderTable.php";
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
