Special:FirstSteps is a spin-off from Translate: it guides the user through the steps of

  1. creating an account at Special:CreateAccount,
  2. configuring their primary language (and assistant language for Translate),
  3. creating a custom userpage (with Babel),
  4. requesting translator permission if not provided to all users

(depending on what was already done or not).


In its basic form, the extension assumes that the following is available:

  1. Babel (for user pages),
  2. LiquidThreads (with a LQT-enabled page or redirect at Project:FirstSteps),
  3. Extension:Translate (some steps would have to be skipped otherwise).
  • Κάντε λήψη και τοποθετήστε τα αρχεία σε έναν κατάλογο που ονομάζεται FirstSteps στον φάκελο extensions/ σας.
  • Προσθέστε τον παρακάτω κώδικα στο κάτω μέρος του LocalSettings.php σας:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/FirstSteps/FirstSteps.php";
  •   Done – Πλοηγηθείτε στο Special:Version στο wiki για να βεβαιωθείτε ότι η επέκταση έχει εγκατασταθεί με επιτυχία.
