Add the following to the composer.local.json file in your MediaWiki root directory, creating the file if necessary:

	"repositories": [
			"type": "vcs",
			"url": "https://github.com/lairdshaw/mediawiki-nbbc-bbcode.git"
	"require": {
		"mediawiki/nbbc-bbcode": "~1.0"

After installing composer if necessary, from the commandline, change directory to your MediaWiki root and run:

composer update --no-dev

Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php :

wfLoadExtension( 'NbbcBbcode' );


# If false (default), then BBCode will be rendered wherever it is in the content.
# If true, then BBCode will be rendered only where it occurs between <bbcode></bbcode> tags.
$NBBC_BBCode_ParseWithinTagOnly = false;


Simply edit BBCode into a page of your choice and it will be rendered.
