Translate the InteractiveBlockMessage extension if it is available at translatewiki.net

Check usage and version matrix.

The InteractiveBlockMessage extensions adds a new magic word {{USERBLOCKED}} which, when used in the NS_USER or NS_USER_TALK namespaces, indicates the blocked status of the user (true if blocked, false if not blocked). It will make it possible to create more user-friendly block templates, which change appearance depending on the user's block status.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called InteractiveBlockMessage in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    wfLoadExtension( 'InteractiveBlockMessage' );
