Description Eep² 2007-08-17 08:49:12 UTC
I have a few extensions installed on my wiki that have special pages but only CategoryTree shows up. Why? See for some extensions that create special pages and that MediaWiki should automatically include in Special:Version if the extension is installed (obviously, of course).
Comment 1 Raimond Spekking 2007-08-17 09:03:47 UTC
Please define which extensions you are missing on Special:Version. The array $wgExtensionCredits has to be added.

BTW: I am pretty sure I have seen an older bug of this kind, but cannot find anymore :-(
Comment 2 Eep² 2007-08-17 09:07:28 UTC

Specifically, Semantic MediaWiki, Semantic Forms, and Dynamic Page List all have special pages that don't appear on special:version.

Using this info, would it be possible to automatically categorize special pages by extension as I have done manually at ?
Comment 3 Rob Church 2007-08-17 12:25:17 UTC
This is due to the absence of specific entries in $wgExtensionCredits, which is a multi-dimensional array indexed by extension type. Most of these extensions define their primary "type" as being a parser hook.

It's possible for them to be listed as special pages too, but this is a matter for the extension authors. It's also not a bug in MediaWiki.
Comment 4 Eep² 2007-08-17 12:41:04 UTC
OK, then I'll be sure to mention this on the relevant MediaWiki wiki sections pertaining to special page creation since, it seems, a lot of extension authors don't bother including this entry...

What about my other question about automatic Special:Specialpages categorization/sorting? At least make that PHP file a sortable table by extension, special page name, and category...
