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.

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Download and extract the file(s) in a directory called DeleteBatch in your extensions/ folder. If you're a developer and this extension is in a Git repository, then instead you should clone the repository using:
git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/p/mediawiki/extensions/DeleteBatch.git
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once "$IP/extensions/DeleteBatch/DeleteBatch.php";

Configure at your convenience

  • Done! Navigate to "Special:Version" on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Configuration[edit | edit source]

By default, this extension lets only bureaucrats delete batches. You can change it to, e.g., let sysops delete batches:

$wgGroupPermissions['bureaucrat']['deletebatch'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['deletebatch'] = true;
