This extension is used for Wikimedia Foundation fundraising at It makes it easier to create localized landing pages for multiple countries and languages. The extension enables the fundraising team to switch out appeals and other page elements on-the-fly without the need to create a new set of localized landing pages. In addition to accepting passed parameters, the extension also performs a geographical IP lookup if a country is not specified in the querystring. This allows for the use of this special page in social media links ensuring that they are not tied to a particular country.


Once installed, users can be directed to http://localhost:8888/wiki/index.php/Special:FundraiserLandingPage?template=templateName&appeal=appeal-name. This extension will then generate a call to the specified (or default) template and pass the other querystring elements as template parameters.


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

Configuration parametersEdit

  • $wgFundraiserLPDefaults - sets the default values for the required parameters
