The MikFunctions extension defines an additional set of parser functions that provide dynamic functionality and cannot be cached.

This extension currently works only on *NIX servers


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called MikFunctions in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/MikFunctions/MikFunctions.php";
  • Create a directory named "seqences" in the extension's directory, e.g.
    mkdir ../extensions/MikFunctions/sequences;
  • Grant write permissions to this folder, e.g.
chown apache:apache ../extensions/MikFunctions/sequences; // CentOS?
chown www-data:www-data ../extensions/MikFunctions/sequences; // Debian
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.


This module defines four functions: seqnext. All of these functions operate in constant time.


The #seqnext function returns the value of next integer int the defined sequence. The syntax is:


The first time the function is used a sequence with the specified seqname will be created returning 1.

Every time the function is called an incremental value of seqname will be returned.

When valpattern and fillchar values are set: if the length of the incremental value of seqname is smaller than valpattern string length, the returned value will match valpattern length replacing with fillchar the missing values.


{{#seqnext:test|9999|X}} will return XX45 when called the fourtyfifth time.


The #uml function has been removed from this extension as no more compatible with plantuml version 0.6.

A new extension MikUML has been created to replace this funcion and assure compatibility with PlantUML 0.6.


Processes and returns the input text duplicating new lines and return carriages (useful to show user input text exaclty as inserted)


{{#parsenl:text to parse}}


echo raw text


{{#mikecho:text to echo}}


checks if user belongs to a group (usage example: you can use it with ifexpr within an article or a template in order decide wether or not to perform actions or show content)


{{#ifexpr:{{#ckusergroup:administrators}}| ..do something |..else }}


makes html button


{{#makebutton:{{fullurl:{{FULLPAGENAME}}|action=delete}}|Delete this page|disabled}} --> Buddon disabled

{{#makebutton:{{fullurl:{{FULLPAGENAME}}|action=delete}}|Delete this page}} --> Buddon enabled


replace raw text
