- The YouTube extension
- The SpamBlacklist extension
- The CharInsert extension (used for easy insertion of special characters)
- The Poem extension (used to format poems)

Installed extensions that need fixing
Other things that need fixing
- The Google Charts feature (for charts and maps), see MediaWiki:Common.js -- this is broken as of 2019
- A solution to display off-wiki HTML pages like a wiki page (e.g. JavaChat)
- Gadgets are not yet working. They can be selected in the preferences but don't seem to run, for an unknown reason. (We tried StockPhoto and HotCat.)
- List of all non-empty pages in the MediaWiki namespace
In January 2011 we upgraded from MediaWiki 1.11.1 to MediaWiki 1.16.1 and installed the Extension:Check Spambots extension. However the extension had an issue and was removed again.
