SiteMetrics extension adds a new special page, Special:SiteMetrics, for viewing statistics regarding the usage of social tools. This special page is a restricted one; the user must have metricsview user right in order to access it. By default, administrators and staff are granted this right.

SiteMetrics uses Google Charts' API to display the graphs.

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called SiteMetrics in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
wfLoadExtension( 'SiteMetrics' );
  • 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( 'SiteMetrics' );, you need to use:

require_once "$IP/extensions/SiteMetrics/SiteMetrics.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.)
