The MissedPages extension tracks every time a site visitor tries to go to a wiki page that doesn't exist, and gives site editors a easy-to-use form with which to track the most popular missed pages and also to redirect these to existing pages.

Installation edit

  • Download and move the extracted MissedPages folder to your extensions/ directory.
    Developers and code contributors should install the extension from Git instead, using:cd extensions/
    git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/extensions/MissedPages
  • Only when installing from Git, run Composer to install PHP dependencies, by issuing composer install --no-dev in the extension directory. (See task T173141 for potential complications.)
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'MissedPages' );
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Usage edit

See Help:Extension:MissedPages for all user documentation.
