Check usage and version matrix.

This extension adds a talk tab to special pages. These talk tabs link into the project: namespace. The target talk pages have the same name as the originating special pages. Unlike "usual" talk pages, unless someone puts a backlink to the special page in a talk page, you woudn't have one, since these talk pages reside in the Project: namespace, and only link to their respective Project: pages.

Download instructions

You can download this extension via the MediaWiki extension distribution system, or via Wikimedia SVN.


Once you have the downloaded source in your wikis extensions/ folder, add:

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