Semantic Approved Revs (a.k.a. SAR) is a Semantic MediaWiki extension and a complement to the Approved Revs extension to help store data related to an approved revision. The extension provides:

  • Control over Semantic MediaWiki related updates to only store data for an approved revision (managed by extension Approved Revs)
  • Additional properties ("Approved by", "Approved date", "Approved revision" and "Approval status") to accompany the approval process

This short video demonstrates the interaction between the Semantic MediaWiki, Semantic Approved Revs, and the Approved Revs extension.


  • PHP 7.0 or later
  • MediaWiki 1.31 or later
  • Semantic MediaWiki 3.1 or later
  • ApprovedRevs extension 0.8 or later


The recommended way to install Semantic Approved Revs is using Composer with MediaWiki's built-in support for Composer.

Note that the required extensions Semantic MediaWiki and Scribunto must be installed first according to the installation instructions provided.

Step 1

Change to the base directory of your MediaWiki installation. If you do not have a "composer.local.json" file yet, create one and add the following content to it:

	"require": {
		"mediawiki/semantic-approved-revs": "~1.0"

If you already have a "composer.local.json" file add the following line to the end of the "require" section in your file:

"mediawiki/semantic-approved-revs": "~1.0"

Remember to add a comma to the end of the preceding line in this section.

Step 2

Run the following command in your shell:

php composer.phar update --no-dev

Note if you have Git installed on your system add the --prefer-source flag to the above command.

Step 3

Add the following line to the end of your "LocalSettings.php" file:

wfLoadExtension( 'SemanticApprovedRevs' );


Not additional customizing is necessary.
