The PageNotice extension provides a way to create a fixed notice messages on the top or the bottom of

  • a page (by individual page name), or
  • entire namespaces (by namespace number).

You can define new fixed MediaWiki messages by creating new pages following a special page-naming pattern to hold that message, and then creating your desired message as the contents of that new page:

Usage[edit]

  • top notice for page XXX goes in [[MediaWiki:top-notice-XXX]]
  • bottom notice for page XXX goes in [[MediaWiki:bottom-notice-XXX]]
  • top notice for pages in namespace NNN goes in [[MediaWiki:top-notice-ns-NNN]] (where NNN is the numeric namespace ID)
  • bottom notice for pages in namespace NNN goes in [[MediaWiki:bottom-notice-ns-NNN]] (where NNN is the numeric namespace ID)

Examples[edit]

This will put the phrase: "Welcome to this wiki - you can edit every page!" at the top of every page in the main namespace:

Create New Page, name:
[[mediawiki:top-notice-ns-0]]
Create new page contents:
Welcome to this wiki - you can edit every page!

This will put a blue banner saying "Welcome to this wiki - you can edit every page!" at the bottom of every page:

Create New Page, name:
[[mediawiki:bottom-notice-ns-0]]
Create new page contents:
{| cellspacing="5" cellpadding="0" style="margin: 0em 0em 1em 0em; border: 1px solid #1DA0E7;  background: #B3DDF4; width: 100%"
| '''''Welcome to this wiki - you can edit every page!'''''
|}
Result looks like this:
Welcome to this wiki - you can edit every page!

Installation[edit]

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called PageNotice in your extensions/ folder.

To users running MediaWiki 1.33 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 1.33 and earlier), instead of wfLoadExtension( 'PageNotice' );, you need to use:

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

Configuration[edit]

$wgPageNoticeDisablePerPageNotices
If set to true, notices on the per-page level are disabled; only namespace level notices will appear. The default value is false.
