The Article To Category 2 extension adds an inputbox to each category page. The content of new page will contain "[[Category:]]" automatically.[1] See section Configuration for optional behavior.

InstallationEdit

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called ArticleToCategory2 in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    wfLoadExtension( 'ArticleToCategory2' );
    $wgarticletocategory2ConfigBlacklist=false;
    $wgGroupPermissions['*']['ArticleToCategory2'] = true;
    $wgGroupPermissions['*']['ArticleToCategory2AddCat'] = false;
    
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

ConfigurationEdit

User permissionEdit

$wgGroupPermissions['*']['ArticleToCategory2AddCat']

Set this flag to true and a second input box will be added, where the users may add categories into categories.

ParameterEdit

$wgarticletocategory2ConfigBlacklist

Set this flag to true to enable the category blacklist in "MediaWiki:Add Article to Category 2 excluded categories" page (you need to create this page first). Usage (example):

== Excluded Categories from Add To Article 2 Extension ==

;My Excluded category 1
;My Excluded category 2

;Another one

If you don't like the name of this page, you can replace it by changing the following line in the GetExcludedCategories() function :

     $specialcatpage='Add Article to Category 2 excluded categories';

NotesEdit

  1. The text (i.e "Category" in English) depends on what language the MediaWiki is using.
