What this extension does[edit]

Hasn't been touched much in years, so may or may not work at present.

Threw this together as a quick experiment:

  • if a page's name matches with a page on a sister site, we display nice links at the top of the page
    • case and spacing are normalized to provide more matches with sites with different naming rules
  • generates a normalized list of page titles & URLs for other sites to read (not implemented?)
  • slurps page title lists from defined sister sites (not implemented?)

It looks like the actual code to build the lists ain't there though.

Installation[edit]

To install this extension, add the following to LocalSettings.php:

require_once("$IP/extensions/SisterSites/SisterSites.php");

This extension predates the current updaters system, so its extra tables must be manually added by sourcing SisterSites.sql.

Sister sites & lists of pages would need to be actually added.
