The Form 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.


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


  • Download and move the extracted Form 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/Form
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'Form' );
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
