The LinkTitles extension automatically adds links to existing page titles that occur on a given page. This will automatically cross-reference your wiki for you. The extension can operate in three ways that can be used independently:
- Whenever a page is edited and saved, the extension will look if any existing page titles occur in the text, and automatically add links (
[[...]]) to the corresponding pages.
- Links may also be added on the fly whenever a page is rendered for display. Most of the time, MediaWiki will fetch previously rendered pages from cache upon a page request, but whenever a page is refreshed, the LinkTitles extension can add its page links. These links are not hard-coded in the Wiki text. The original content will not be modified.

- Download, extract and place the file(s) in a directory called
- Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:

- Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
