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 former StringFunctions extension, which may be enabled or disabled.

For instructions on how to use this extension, see the help pages.

Installation[edit]

  • Download and move the extracted ParserFunctions folder to your extensions/ directory.
    Developers and code contributors should install the extension from Git instead, using:cd extensions/
    git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/extensions/ParserFunctions
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'ParserFunctions' );
    
  • Configure as required, e.g., if you want to use the integrated string function functionality, add just after that line:
$wgPFEnableStringFunctions = true;
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Configuration[edit]

$wgPFEnableStringFunctions
Allows to activate the integrated string function functionality (see string function ). The default value is false.
$wgPFStringLengthLimit
Defines the maximum length of a string that string functions are allowed to operate on. The default value is 1000.
