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.
- Batch mode enables Wiki administrators to process all pages in a Wiki at once. Batch processing can either be started from a special page, or from the server's command line (see below).
- Download, extract and place the file(s) in a directory called
- Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
wfLoadExtension( 'LinkTitles' );
- Configure as required.
- Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

(This enables me to use an offline text editor to edit the file, and it keeps the file under the same version control as the code.)
