Translate the DeleteBatch extension if it is available at translatewiki.net
The DeleteBatch extension adds a special page, Special:DeleteBatch, where users with the 'deletebatch' right can delete multiple pages easily. The user can delete pages either through the form or by uploading a text file containing the names (and optional delete reasons) of the deletable pages.
The syntax is:
- page name|Reason for deletion
So if you wanted to delete the page called "Test" with the reason "no longer needed", you'd type:
Test|no longer needed
in the form on Special:DeleteBatch. This extension was based off on the maintenance script with the same name.
