The ContentTransfer extension enables pushing content from one wiki to another.

Users with the appropriate authorisation can copy up to 200 pages per transfer from a wiki to the same namespace of a target wiki.

Depending on the settings selected on the ContentTransfer special page, the following files are copied:

  • the selected wiki pages
  • the related category pages
  • the book page associated with wiki pages
  • the templates associated with wiki pages
  • attached files


  • Download and move the extracted ContentTransfer folder to your extensions/ directory.
    Developers and code contributors should install the extension from Git instead, using:cd extensions/
    git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/extensions/ContentTransfer
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'ContentTransfer' );
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
