Enable the use of PAGEBANNER magic word on Vietnamese Wikivoyage
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Hi. I don't know if I've come to the right place, or the magic word is already usable but something else is missing.
Anyway, I was trying to update the Pagebanner template on the Vietnamese Wikivoyage when I noticed the magic word behaved differently compared to that of the English Wikivoyage: it appears to try to transclude a template instead of functioning like a magic word.
If someone could enlighten me on this I'd be more than appreciated.

If this is about functionality, lists WikidataPageBanner whileĐặc_biệt:Phiên_bản does not. So I guess you request installation of that extension?

Thank you for the detailed answer, the extension is exactly what I have been looking for. I have read the requesting process on Meta, and proceeded to create a discussion here:, but since the wiki is a low-activity one, I don't think there would be any response.
So, is there anything else I can do to see this functionality deployed on the wiki?

I think what you want is provided by the WikidataPageBanner extension.

For a wiki with a very low level activity, a notification like you did is enough: even if nobody replies, we can proceed after a 3 to 7 days delay to be sure people have an opportunity to see it.

I'd suggest we deploy this Thursday evening if there isn't any objection.
