The NamespaceHTML extension allows raw HTML in specified namespaces. It is intended to work just like the $wgRawHtml setting. The difference is that this extension allows specifying which namespace(s) should be able to contain raw HTML, which allows administrators to restrict raw HTML to namespaces with sufficient edit protections.

This extension was created for WikiWorks.

Usage edit

Embed raw html within ‎<html>...‎</html> tags. See Manual:$wgRawHtml for more information.

As a template edit

The extension allows inclusion from namespaces where HTML is allowed to namespaces where HTML is not. You can create a custom script namespace and allow HTML in that namespace. Then you can create pages in the script namespace that contain safe scripts which can be transcluded into any page.

Technically, you can use the #tag parser function to pass parameters to the template. See here for an example. However, it is a better idea to use the Widgets extension for that.

Widget examples edit

Installation edit

  • Download and move the extracted NamespaceHTML 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/NamespaceHTML
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'NamespaceHTML' );
  • Configure as required.
  •   Note: $wgRawHtmlNamespaces = []; must be configured, see below.
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Configuration edit

List of the namespaces where raw HTML should be enabled. See this page for more information about namespace constants. For example:
# allow raw HTML but only in the Project: & User: namespaces
$wgRawHtmlNamespaces = [ NS_PROJECT, NS_USER ];
