The CategoryIndexingControl applies a noindex robot policy to pages in specified categories.


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




$wgNoIndexCategories = array( 'Category:Abby', 'Category:Aubry', 'Category:Emilee' );

After having set the configuration setting in that manner, one would need only to add pages to those categories in order to have noindex applied to those pages.
