General Settings: $wgVersion
MediaWiki version number.
Introduced in version: 1.2.0
Removed in version: still in use
Allowed values: (string)
Default value: Current MediaWiki version - you shouldn't change this!
Other settings: Alphabetical | By function


The current version of MediaWiki (e.g, "1.30.0"). You shouldn't need to set this option; it is used internally.

Example code[edit]

If you're implementing a new feature that only works in MediaWiki 1.19 or later, but you want to maintain backwards compatibility, you could use a test such as the following:

$oldVersion = version_compare( $wgVersion, '1.18', '<=' );
if ( $oldVersion ) {
    # Do stuff for MediaWiki 1.18 and older
} else {
    # Do stuff for MediaWiki 1.19 and newer

However, it is typically recommended that you use feature detection to see whether the method or class you wish to use is available instead of depending upon raw version strings.
