The GlobalUserPage extension enables global (shared between wikis) user pages on a wiki farm.
Using this extension comes with a few security risks. You must absolutely trust the central wiki and its admins, as they can easily insert raw HTML into your wiki, opening up XSS holes and other bad things.
- Download and move the extracted
GlobalUserPagefolder to your
Developers and code contributors should install the extension from Git instead, using:
git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/extensions/GlobalUserPage
- Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
wfLoadExtension( 'GlobalUserPage' );
- Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
$wgGlobalUserPageAPIUrl- the URL to the central wiki's
api.php. This URL is internally used to fetch the global user page's text.
$wgGlobalUserPageCacheExpiry- controls how long to cache the rendered HTML for. The default is
60 * 60 * 24 * 7(one week). The HTML is usually invalidated upon editing, but this is a worst case fallback.
$wgGlobalUserPageDBname- the name of the database where global user page data is stored, i.e. usually this should be set to the same value as
$wgGlobalUserPageFooterKey- message key to add as a footer to the bottom of global user pages, or false if no footer should be added.
$wgGlobalUserPageTimeout- Timeout for internal API requests, to use
$wgHTTPTimeoutset this to the string "default".
