    require_once "$IP/extensions/LiquidThreadsOverview/LiquidThreadsOverview.php";
    
  • Configure as required
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Configuration[edit]

There are three parameters to be set in LocalSettings.php:

parameter default value description
$wglqtoCss 'sortable' allows to change css style, just enter another css class here, e.g. 'sortable newmessagetable'
$wglqtoUseIcons false set this to true to have an Icon column. This is especially helpful, if you are relying heavily on namespaces
$wglqtoIconType 'svg' only used in conjunction with the above parameter. Sets Icon type of the images.
