Translate the TimeMachine extension if it is available at translatewiki.net

The TimeMachine extension allows you to browse a wiki as it was at any given date. By going to Special:TimeMachine, you can set a date and from then on whenever you visit a page, you will see the first revision previous to that date. By visiting Special:TimeMachine again, or emptying your cookies, you can return to browsing the wiki as always.

The design and implementation of TimeMachine are described here.

Installation edit

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