The CourseEditor extension provides an interface and metadata storage to connect a group of pages which form a book (course textbook, from which the name).

  • Each "course" is composed of chapters and sections.
  • Each "course" can be in a content namespace (Course) or user namespace.


  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/CourseEditor/CourseEditor.php";
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
