The TopLink extension adds a "Return to top" link at the bottom of each page to jump back to the top of the page.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called TopLink in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'TopLink' );
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.


A link like this can be created with internal links syntax, i.e. [[#top|Return to top]] which however needs to be added manually to a page, e.g. via a template.
