The ParserFunctions extension enhances the wikitext parser with helpful functions, mostly related to logic and string-handling. Since MediaWiki 1.15, ParserFunctions has incorporated most (but not all) of the functions from the StringFunctions extension, which may be enabled or disabled (See the install instructions below).

For instructions on how to use this extension, see the ParserFunctions help page, and the StringFunctions page.

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called ParserFunctions in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
wfLoadExtension( 'ParserFunctions' );
  • Configure as required, e.g. if you want to use the integrated string function functionality, add just after that line:
$wgPFEnableStringFunctions = true;
  • 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 extensions using wfLoadExtension(), since MediaWiki 1.25. If you need to install this extension in earlier versions, instead of wfLoadExtension( 'ParserFunctions' );, you need to use:

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

(To run an extension on an earlier release, you may need to download the version of it tagged for that release from Special:ExtensionDistributor.)

Configuration[edit | edit source]

Allows to activate the integrated string function functionality (see StringFunctions). The default value is false.
