Enabling and in MediaWiki

By admin | September 14, 2008

If you have a MediaWiki installation and decide to make it Wikipedia-like, you will find that the <ref> tags and the <references /> tags don’t work like they do in Wikipedia. Below is a screenshot of the citation tags not working:
MediaWiki 1.12 without the Cite extension

To fix this problem, you need to install the Cite extenstion for MediaWiki. Below is a step-by-step guide to installing the Cite extension:

  1. Download the Cite extension – ZIP format, RAR format or 7zip format.
  2. Extract it to a temporary location.
  3. Upload the “Cite” folder to your extensions folder.
  4. Edit LocalSettings.php and add:
    require_once( $IP.'/extensions/Cite/Cite.php' );

    after the line

    require_once( "$IP/includes/DefaultSettings.php" );
  5. Now refresh the page and try again!
