The problem is that when the ParserAfterStrip() hook gets called, only the
text of the page is available, the template hasn't been expanded yet. Only
one hook is available (at least in MW 1.16) that allows a change to the
header option before it's too late after all templates have been processed,
and that's InternalParseBeforeLinks(). To get MagicNumberedHeadings to work,
edit MagicNumberedHeadings.php and make these changes:
... around line 52
- $wgHooks['ParserBeforeInternalParse'] =
+ $wgHooks['InternalParseBeforeLinks'] =
... around line 90
- function MagicNumberedHeadingsParserBeforeInternalParse($parser, $text,
+ function MagicNumberedHeadingsInternalParseBeforeLinks($parser, $text,
This applies to a few other extensions I happened across while learning this
stuff, so if you're searching for "why doesn't it work in a template"
problems, take a look here too.

Actually I take that back a little bit. I was hoping to let
my users check a box to include numbering in their articles,
but the magic word doesn't work in a template. Someone
pointed that out on the discussion page in 2008, but I guess
no one cared enough to fix it. If one of you pros can see
that the hooks it's using would allow it to work in
templates, it would be a great fix. In the mean time, I'm
trying to figure it out and if I get it I'll post the
solution (here and on the discussion page).
