Extensions customize and extend MediaWiki's functionality.

How to request an extension

First, make sure that the extension you are looking for doesn't already exist on your wiki. You can check this by going to Special:Version and looking in the "Installed extensions" section. wiki.gg comes with different extensions enabled by default.

If you want to see if a particular extension you desire has been installed on any other wiki, you can check the "Extensions available on request" section on this same page.

Next, head over to the wiki.gg help center, select the "Technical support" option, and then fill out the details, explaining the reason why you want that extension on your wiki. The wiki.gg staff will review your request shortly, and you will receive a response regarding the possibility of enabling that extension. You may need to adjust the styles of these extensions if they are enabled, such as with the VisualEditor.
