GlobalNotice is a MediaWiki extension that allows to create global sitenotices, which cannot be dismissed, on a wiki farm (such as ShoutWiki).



  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called GlobalNotice in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
wfLoadExtension( 'GlobalNotice' );
  • YesY Done - Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

To users running MediaWiki 1.24 or earlier:

The instructions above describe the new way of installing extensions using wfLoadExtension(), since MediaWiki 1.25. If you need to install this extension in earlier versions, instead of wfLoadExtension( 'GlobalNotice' );, you need to use:

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