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



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


  • $wgGlobalNoticeDisplayWarningOnEditPage - This is by default equal to false. When set to true, a warning will show to the editor who's editing MediaWiki:Forced-globalnotice for informing the purpose of the message.
