The Quantcast extension adds Quantcast tracking JavaScript code to all pages for all users (except those who are in a group that is excluded).

This extension was written by Jack Phoenix for ShoutWiki.


  • Create MediaWiki:Quantcast-tracking-number on your wiki with your Quantcast tracking code (this code is usually something like p-b0cm0JUH0b-sA)
  • Download and move the extracted Quantcast 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/Quantcast
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'Quantcast' );
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.


  • $wgQuantcastTrackingExcludedGroups — an array of groups that are excluded from Quantcast tracking. By default the array contains only the staff group. Use internal group names (such as sysop, not administrator or administrators) here.
