This extension makes it easy to generate random Ludwig von Mises quotations.

Installation[edit]

  • Create a folder in the extensions folder named MisesQuote
  • Move the files to the extensions/MisesQuote/ folder
  • Edit LocalSettings.php in the root of your MediaWiki installation, and add the following line near the bottom:
require_once("$IP/extensions/MisesQuote/MisesQuote.php");

Usage[edit]

Simply add a <misesquote/> tag wherever you want a randomly-generated Ludwig von Mises quote to appear. It is recommended that you add the misesquote: prefix to your interwiki table (url: http://wiki.mises.org/$1) and copy and paste this text into Template:Misesquote on your wiki.
