The Form extension lets users create new articles with a form. Administrators create a form in the MediaWiki namespace, and this form can be used to create a new article using a particular template.

This is a testing version of the extension and it's almost sure to have bugs.


For help on how to use the Form extension, see Help:Extension:Form.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called Form in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    wfLoadExtension( 'Form' );
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
