Add Guided Tour Extension

WalkMe will go offline June 30th 2020. We will try to recreate the walk thru help using Guided Tour.

The GuidedTour extension provides a framework for creating “guided tours,” or interactive tutorials for MediaWiki features. Tours typically walk a user through some standard workflow (like editing an article or uploading an image) and are implemented as a series of dialog boxes that tell the user where to click and what to do next.

Tours are backed by JavaScript and PHP code that can monitor the user’s progress, check their understanding, and offer advice and encouragement. Guided tours are an effective means for breaking down complex tasks into a series of simple, discrete sub-tasks, and for giving the user the experience and confidence needed to repeat the workflow for similar tasks in the future. Tours may also be used to implement interactive surveys.

The Guided Tour extension requires the Event Logging framework.

See the Special:Version page on Beta to see that EventLogging and GuidedTour are installed.

Now deploying to production

Deploying with full backup puts the site out for the time it takes to backup the english wiki.
