UserStatus is an extension that, together with the SportsTeams extension, provides the ability to post status updates that are associated with a social network (a sports team).



  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called UserStatus in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php :
    wfLoadExtension( 'UserStatus' );
  • Run the update script which will automatically create the necessary database tables that this extension needs.
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.


When logged in, you can add a status update either via your social profile page (if you're a member of at least one sports network) or via the network page of a sports network.

User rightsEdit

The new delete-status-updates user right, which sysop and staff groups have by default, allows deleting other users' status updates than just your own.
