Enabling/disabling the toolbar

No configuration is needed "out of the box". By default, when installed this extension will be available to all users, and logged-in users can disable it from their preferences via the "Abbilita la barra avanzata dî strummenta di canci" option (under the "Canciamentu" tab).

If you wish all users to have it, and be unable to disable it, add it to $wgHiddenPrefs in your LocalSettings.php :

$wgHiddenPrefs[] = 'usebetatoolbar';
MediaWiki version:

If you are using a version before REL1_31 and would want the toolbar to be default for users when they first join, add this line to your LocalSettings.php:

$wgDefaultUserOptions['usebetatoolbar'] = 1;

Realtime Preview

MediaWiki version:

Enable the Realtime Preview feature with the following:

$wgWikiEditorRealtimePreview = true;

This feature is as of August 2022 being tested on some wikis like this wiki.

Signature button

The button for adding user signatures (four tildes) is available on talk pages and in namespaces specified in $wgExtraSignatureNamespaces .


The extension used to provide "Labs" features for "publication" and "preview" steps, but these were removed from REL1_31 onwards.
