To users running MediaWiki 1.24 or earlier:

The instructions above describe the new way of installing this extension using wfLoadExtension() If you need to install this extension on these earlier versions (MediaWiki 1.24 and earlier), instead of wfLoadExtension( 'WatchSubpages' );, you need to use:

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

$wgGroupPermissions['user']['watchsubpages'] = true;
