ArticleCreationWorkflow helps users create new pages, intercepting article creation for new users and giving them wiki-configurable options such as using the Article wizard or creating a draft as a user subpage.
In order for users to be intercepted, they must have the createpage right, must not have the createinmainns right, the page they are trying to create must be in the main namespace (and not yet exist) and the page pointed to by $wgArticleCreationLandingPage must exist.
- If using Vagrant, install with
vagrant roles enable articlecreationworkflow --provision
- Manual installation
- Download and place the file(s) in a directory called
- Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
wfLoadExtension( 'ArticleCreationWorkflow' );
- Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
$wgArticleCreationLandingPage(string): the name of the wiki page to which users should be redirected if intercepted.
$wgUseCustomLandingPageStyles(bool): Whether to load custom CSS for the landing page.
The extension adds a new user right called
createpagemainns which permits users to create new pages in the main namespace.
This right is given by default to all users.
Users without this right are prohibited from creating main namespace pages, and when they attempt to (by clicking on a red link, for example) they're redirected to the Article Creation Workflow landing page.
