  • &$footerItems: the array of links that can be changed. Keys will be used for generating the ID of the footer item; values should be HTML strings.

Default footer itemsEdit

Setting a text-generating message for one of the places items to - removes that item from the footer.


// Add a "Test Link" link in the footer
public static function onSkinAddFooterLinks( Skin $skin, string $key, array &$footerlinks  ) {
    if ( $key === 'places' ) {
        $footerlinks['test'] = '<A href=#>Test Link</a>';
