The LinkTitles extension automatically adds links to existing page titles that occur on a given page. This will automatically cross-reference your wiki for you. The extension can operate in three ways that can be used independently:

  1. Whenever a page is edited and saved, the extension will look if any existing page titles occur in the text, and automatically add links ([[...]]) to the corresponding pages.
  2. Links may also be added on the fly whenever a page is rendered for display. Most of the time, MediaWiki will fetch previously rendered pages from cache upon a page request, but whenever a page is refreshed, the LinkTitles extension can add its page links. These links are not hard-coded in the Wiki text. The original content will not be modified.
  3. Batch mode enables Wiki administrators to process all pages in a Wiki at once. Batch processing can either be started from a special page, or from the server's command line (see below).



Usage and configuration


Usage and configuration information can be found in the README.md file in the extension's repository.
