The BlockBatch extension adds a special page, Special:BlockBatch, where users with the 'blockbatch' right can block multiple users easily.

Installation[edit]

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called BlockBatch in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/BlockBatch/BlockBatch.php";
    
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Configuration[edit]

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

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