BlueSpiceSocial is a group of extensions that add social media features to the wiki. This allows users to quickly communicate on the wiki and to express their opinions on pages more easily.

Warning!Pages in the namespaces SocialEntity and User are indexed by search engines by default until prior to version 3.1.13. If you run a public wiki with an earlier version, you should exclude these namespaces from being searchable unless you want these pages to be indexed by public search engines.

BlueSpiceSocial provides the architecture for all Social extensions. It contains base classes, SourceTitle namespace, SocialEntity ContentModel, notifications, etc.

This extension is required by all Social extensions. Without another Social extension (e.g., BlueSpiceSocialBlog), this extension has no effect.

The following Social extensions are available:
