The TheWikipediaLibrary extension is used by Wikimedia Foundation sites to notify users when they have become eligible for the Wikipedia Library program. The notification is sent upon the user's 500th edit (using their global edit count), or upon the user's first edit after their account is six months old.



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