UniversalExport is the base extension for other export extensions. It incorporates various modules, each serving as exporter for a particular format or type of export.

Usage / features[edit]

  • UEModuleBookPDF
  • UEModuleHTML
  • UEModulePDF
  • UEModulePDFRecursive
  • UEModulePDFSubpages
  • UEModuleTable2Excel


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