GlobalFunctions.php is a file that contains global functions, including such important functions as wfMsgExt, which is used for internationalisation .



Passing a string (with a file name) or a Title object, returns a File object, or false if the file does not exist. It's a shortcut for RepoGroup::singleton()->findFile(). Use RepoGroup::singleton()->getLocalRepo()->findFile() if you need to get files only from the local repository.

(entfernt in 1.32) wfRunHooks() example usage, from WikiPage:doEditContent() :

$hook_args = array( &$this, &$user, $content, $summary,
	$flags & EDIT_MINOR, null, null, &$flags, $revision, &$status, $baseRevId );
ContentHandler::runLegacyHooks( 'ArticleSaveComplete', $hook_args );
wfRunHooks( 'PageContentSaveComplete', $hook_args );


wfRandom() is used to populate page.page_random.


(veraltet in 1.27) (entfernt in 1.31) Use Wikimedia\base_convert() directly. The function used to generate the base-36 SHA-1 text content hash in revision.rev_sha1 is wfBaseConvert( sha1( $text ), 16, 36, 31 ). API modules like ApiQueryRevisions use wfBaseConvert( $revision->getSha1(), 36, 16, 40 ).


This function attempts to get the system directory for temporary files.
