Storify Widget for MediaWiki

Let you embed a story from Storify in your wiki


  1. Download and extract the files in a directory called "StorifyWidget" in your extensions/ folder.
  2. Add the following code to your LocalSettings.php (at the bottom)

require_once( "$IP/extensions/StorifyWidget/StorifyWidget.php" );

  1. Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Configuration parameters

Just insert the <storifywidget/> tag where you want the story to appear. If you miss the / in the tag, it can remove page content.

You can configure it with the following parameters :

  • src : URI of the story you want to import

The URI needed is the URI of the story when it is full page :[USERNAME]/[URI-ENCODED-TITLE-OF-THE-STORY]

ie :

  • width (default "32") : The width of the widget (em)
  • height (default "50") : The height of the widget (em)

Default values

<storifywidget src="uri_of_the_story" width="720" height="700" />


Storify widget is an extremely simple extension; all it does is convert a <storifywidget /> tag into the export link from Storify but add the possibility to set the width and height.

Wiki Compatibility

StorifyWidget uses ResourceLoader, which was introduced in MW 1.17. I only have access to a wiki running 1.19.2, so I cannot guarantee that StorifyWidget will work on earlier versions of MediaWiki.

Another way to do it is to use the export link from Storify story.
