Check usage and version matrix.

The MsWikiEditor extension allows you to easily add or remove buttons from the WikiEditor from your LocalSettings.php


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called MsWikiEditor in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    wfLoadExtension( 'MsWikiEditor' );
  • YesY Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

To users running MediaWiki 1.24 or earlier:

The instructions above describe the new way of installing this extension using wfLoadExtension() If you need to install this extension on these earlier versions (MediaWiki 1.24 and earlier), instead of wfLoadExtension( 'MsWikiEditor' );, you need to use:

require_once "$IP/extensions/MsWikiEditor/MsWikiEditor.php";


To add a button, add its definition to the $wgMSWE_add array in your LocalSettings.php. Here are a few examples:

$wgMSWE_add['date'] = array( 'Current date', date( 'Y-m-d' ), '', '', 'extensions/MsWikiEditor/images/date.png' );
$wgMSWE_add['gallery'] = array( 'Gallery', '<gallery>\\n', 'File:Example1.jpg|Caption1\\nFile:Example2.png|Caption2\\n', '</gallery>', 'extensions/MsWikiEditor/images/gallery.png' );
$wgMSWE_add['strike'] = array( 'Strike', '<strike>', 'Text', '</strike>', 'extensions/MsWikiEditor/images/strike.png' );
$wgMSWE_add['email'] = array( 'Email', '[mailto:', 'address@domain.com', ']', 'extensions/MsWikiEditor/images/email.png' );
$wgMSWE_add['mslink'] = array( 'MsLink', '{{#l:', 'Filename.ext', '}}', 'extensions/MsWikiEditor/images/link.png' );
$wgMSWE_add['template'] = array( 'Your template', '{{Your template|', 'Parameters', '}}', 'extensions/MsWikiEditor/images/template.png' );
$wgMSWE_add['signature'] = array( 'Signature', '--~~~~', '', '', 'extensions/MsWikiEditor/images/signature.png' );
$wgMSWE_add['attention'] = array( 'Attention', '{{Attention|', 'Text', '}}', 'extensions/MsWikiEditor/images/attention.png' );

To remove a button, just include its name (the 'rel' attribute) in the $wgMSWE_remove array. For example:

$wgMSWE_remove = array( 'advanced', 'characters', 'help', 'file', 'reference', 'ilink', 'xlink' );

By default, both arrays are empty.
