The MySystemMessages extension allows to add wiki specific system messages. This extension comes in quite handy if you have multiple wiki instances which share the same content structure for, e.g. templates and forms. It makes it easier to deploy translations to these wiki instances by avoiding individual message setup on every instance. This also makes farming easier since the system messages may easily be deployed to all wiki instances.


  • Scarricamentu and place the file(s) in a directory called MySystemMessages in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/MySystemMessages/MySystemMessages.php";
  • Talìa lu LÈGGIMI pi sapiri comu cunfigurari st'estinzioni.
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.


To add a system message to a page you will use the "int" parser function provided by core MediaWiki, i.e. {{int:message identifier}}, e.g. {{int:mysm-mymessage}}. Thus the message will be shown in the language the user selected in her or his preferences. If a message is not available in the internationalized version for a specific language the English version will be shown.
