The StructuredNavigation extension allows users to create machine-readable navigation templates.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called StructuredNavigation in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    wfLoadExtension( 'StructuredNavigation' );
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.


You can play with an example in /docs/examples (from the source code repository). For this example, let's try using wikipedia-en-dontnod-entertainment.json.

  1. Create a new page at Navigation:Dontnod Entertainment, import the JSON into that page, then save your edit.
  2. At a separate wikitext page, add <mw-navigation title="Dontnod Entertainment"> and press save.
