The NewPageTemplateSelector extension is similar to InputBox "create" option but allows you to specify a list of templates to preload.


Put something like that on your page:

    templates="Empty article, Template:Template name 1, Template:Template name 2" 
    placeholder="Please enter page name"

And save the page. You will see something like this:

Installation and configuration[edit]

The extension tested on MediaWiki 1.36. Probably it will work on 1.32+ (the used hooks are quite old and the newest part of it is OOUI which is still relatively old).

To install the extension:

  1. Clone the repository to your extensions/ subfolder: git clone https://github.com/Griboedow/NewPageTemplateSelector.git
  2. Load the extension in your LocalSettings.php: wfLoadExtension( 'NewPageTemplateSelector' );
