The RedirectManager extension adds a dialog window to the WikiEditor toolbar, in which to view a list of all redirects to the page being edited as well as add new redirects. It makes it easier to add redirects and avoids having to go to the redirect page and edit it.


  • Download and move the extracted RedirectManager 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/RedirectManager
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'RedirectManager' );
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
