The Discord extension sends notifications to a Discord webhook (or several) from MediaWiki. When a certain event occurs on your MediaWiki wiki, including new edits, they can be sent as a message to a channel on a Discord server using a webhook.

This extension requires cURL to be installed on your web server, which on Linux is probably as simple as running sudo apt install curl -y.

Live demo: https://runescape.wiki (https://discord.gg/runescapewiki)


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called Discord in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php :
    wfLoadExtension( 'Discord' );
    // List webhook URLs to send notifications to (string or array containing strings)
    $wgDiscordWebhookURL = [ "" ];
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
