MediaWiki Must Have Extenstions

If you are using MediaWiki as a Wiki you should install the following Extenstions:

Extension:Cite


Cite is an extension which allows an editor to create footnotes. Cite includes several extensions which can be installed independently and operate independently of each other.


Extension:Google_Analytics

Analytics is a simple extension which allows you to put a Google Analytics tracker in your MediaWiki articles, so you can obtain statistics on the articles that you are interested in.

Extension:ParserFunction

ParserFunctions extension enhances parser with logical functions. New versions (r50997+) also incorporate the features of StringFunctions.

Extension:User_Merge_and_Delete

User Merge and Delete extension allows Wiki users with the 'usermerge' permission (Bureaucrat by default) to merge one Wiki user's account with another Wiki user's account - deleting following merge is also supported. You may not delete a user without merging first - omitting the "New User" field will auto-populate the New User as "Anonymous", user_id 0 and ask you to confirm merge to Anonymous.
