Extension to Display Header

The extension to display a header uses the following:

The extension is currently loaded on OWW. It works as follows:

  • If a specific header is available for a page to be displayed, it will use it.
  • If no page header is present, the extensions checks for a global header for all pages within a namespace.
  • I've also changed the code to only display a single header.
  • If no header is displayed for other pages.
  • I've disabled display of footers, also supported, in the extension.

Configuring Notices

To enable the extension, an entry is created for each page or namespace.

The namespace is identified via the MediaWiki numerical constant for it (see the table below for details):
