  • Before downloading TopTenPages, first install HitCounters. (Unless you are using MediaWiki 1.24 or older, where HitCounters was part of MediaWiki)
  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called TopTenPages in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
wfLoadExtension( 'TopTenPages' );
  • Configure as required
  • 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( 'TopTenPages' );, you need to use:

require_once "$IP/extensions/TopTenPages/TopTenPages.php";


$wgTopTenPagesStartAtOne (Disabled by default)
Enable this to always start the list numbering at "1", even if an "offset" attribute was set.
