This is a list of most extensions installed on Miraheze, sorted by three categories: global extensions that are enabled on every wiki that cannot be disabled (and a brief reason why), default extensions that are enabled on new wikis by default but can be disabled, and extensions that are not enabled by default but can be enabled on individual wikis. This page also includes some of those extensions which have been requested but cannot be installed, and a brief reason as to why.

Estensioni rifiutate

Many extensions have been requested but are not able to be installed for various reasons. The most common reasons are that the extension introduces security and/or privacy risks that cannot be mitigated, that the extension is not being actively maintained upstream, or that the extension conflicts with a global extension that cannot be removed. The following is a list of declined extensions, and a brief reason why they are declined.

  • AccessControl – Privacy issues, extension has a warning about leaks of confidential information
  • BlockBatchNot actively maintained, see T7303
  • BlueSpice – Rischio di sicurezza
  • ConfigureNo longer maintained upstream (hasn't worked since MediaWiki 1.18), and ManageWiki essentially does the same thing
  • ConfirmAccountIncompatible with CentralAuth - Since user accounts exist globally it is not possible to have individual wikis require accounts be approved
  • DeleteBatchTechnical limitations, see T956
  • DisableAccount – Security issues, allowing unauthorized users to permanently disable other user accounts
  • DraftsNot actively maintained; no known alternative
  • EditAccount – Security issues, allowing unauthorized users to change another user's email or password, or permanently disable their account
  • EditUser – Security issues, allowing unauthorized users to change another user's preferences
  • EmbedAnything – Rischio di sicurezza
  • ExternalLinksRischio di sicurezza, vedi $phab
  • GlobaluserrightsIncompatible with Special:CentralAuth
  • Html2Wiki - Unreadable code making a review by Miraheze technical volunteers difficult, see T2740
  • Html5mediatorDeclinato a causa di problemi di sicurezza (inserimento arbitrario di JS), $phab.
  • Lockdown – Extension has the same warning about privacy leaks as AccessControl
  • MarkdownNot actively maintained upstream
  • MiniInvite – Rischio di sicurezza
  • MultiUploadNot maintained upstream. You can use MsUpload, which provides similar functionality.
  • OpenID Connect – Rischio di sicurezza
  • PageViewInfoIncompatible with Miraheze, specific for Wikimedia
  • Replace Text – Incompatible with database compression
  • PluggableAuth – Rischio di sicurezza
  • SecurePollReveals private information
  • Site settingsManageWiki does the same thing (actually even more), and up until recently this extension had a major security flaw
  • SpecialNamespacesManageWikiNamespaces does the same thing.
  • Tasks ExtensionFlagged as unstable, indicating one or more parts, or even the entire extension, is broken
  • UseResource - Use GlobalCssJS, TemplateStyles and CSS instead
  • UserGroupsManageWikiPermissions does the same thing
  • mw:Special:MyLanguage/Extension:WantedPagesFromNS – Not actively maintained upstream (latest stable version from 2014, no human updates to code in over 2 years)
  • WidgetsSecurity risk, see 2020-12-23 Security Disclosure
  • WikiBannerWe don't accept ads
  • Extensions made by Fandom without independent documentation on—such as Special:Withoutimages, MediaWiki:ImportJS, and Special:AdminDashboard—and considered too specific for Fandom. Use similar extensions instead.


  • Requesting new extensions: If you would like to request a new extension, please create a task on Phorge. Please be aware that any extensions which are not in use by one or more Wikimedia Foundation projects will require a security review before being installed. The purpose of this review is to check the code to make sure there are no vulnerabilities that would expose either Miraheze as a whole and/or individual users of the extension to security and/or privacy risks.
  • Estensioni limitate: Alcune estensioni nella lista delle estensioni abilitate globalmente sono limitate e non possono essere usate da wiki e utenti individuali, e possono essere usate esclusivamente dai membri dello Staff di Miraheze - sia Stewards e/o Amministratori di sistema. Questo è di solito per una o entrambe le seguenti ragioni: l'estensione rivela informazioni private che in molte circostanze non dovrebbero essere accessibili, ma potrebbe essere necessario accedervi per fermare lo spam e il vandalismo; e/o l'estensione ha effetti sul funzionamento generale di Miraheze e quindi l'uso dell'estensione al di fuori di Meta Wiki romperebbe le cose.
  • Note about MultiUpload: This extension is no longer being actively maintained upstream and therefore is unsuitable for Miraheze. However, users who are familiar with another wiki hosting service, ShoutWiki, may be aware that the extension in use there. The extension is only being maintained as a local copy by ShoutWiki developers for their specific service, and even these developers have indicated that they will not continue to maintain it if it ultimately breaks down. Therefore, please use MsUpload instead, which provides similar functionality.
