What can this extension do?[edit]

This extension allows users to embed <style>...</style> tags within any wiki page. Removes the need to continually dive into CSS files on the server (which may be impractical for what you're trying to achieve).

Very useful when trying to style tables.

There's almost certainly some security risks with this approach, but I shall allow somebody in the community to point these out as it's not relevant for how I'm using it.


<style> //CSS STYLE ELEMENTS </style>


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




$wgHooks['ParserAfterTidy'][] = 'StyleParserAfterTidy';
$wgExtensionFunctions[] = "styleExtSetup";
function styleExtSetup() {
    global $wgParser;
    $wgParser->setHook("style", "styleExtParserHook" );
$markerList = array();

function styleExtParserHook($input, $argv, &$parser) {
    global $markerList;
    $output = "<STYLE>".$input."</STYLE>";
    $marker = "xx-marker".count($markerList)."-xx";
    $markerList[] = $output;
    return $marker;
function StyleParserAfterTidy(&$parser, &$text) {
    // find markers in $text
    // replace markers with actual output
    global $markerList;
    for ($i=0;$i<count($markerList);$i++)
      $text = preg_replace('/xx-marker'.$i.'-xx/',$markerList[$i],$text);
    return true;
