This feature was developed to resolve bug 23796 which is a feature request for an icon area for articles. This approach plays nice with existing template hacks which served the same purpose, providing a simple way to migrate over to using this extension exclusively.

  2. Setup your LocalSettings.php as explained in README file.
  3. Run php maintenance/update.php from the command line (see update.php and also here)
