The extension lets users create new articles with a form. Administrators create a form in the MediaWiki namespace, and this form can be used to create a new article using a particular template. This is a testing version of the extension and it's almost sure to have bugs. Any bugs should be reported to Phabricator.

For help on how to use the Form extension, see Help:Extension:Form.
