What can this extension do?[edit]

Pushes a HTTP code 302 (Found) to the browser when there is a redirect instead of handling it internally. The end user will not notice any difference (other than the address to the page having an ?rd=Redirecting_page bit at the end).


Install and forget.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called HTTP302Found in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/HTTP302Found/HTTP302Found.php";
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
