This extension adds Special:CreatePage, where user can create a new page.

Why is this needed?[edit]

New users often ask: "Where do I create a new page?".

You don't want to explain to them about redlinks, send them to some lengthy manual, etc.
Instead, with this extension, you can answer: on [[Special:CreatePage]].

Installation[edit]

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

Background[edit]

This is a modern port of Extension:Uniwiki CreatePage (which no longer works in latest MediaWiki).

Configuration[edit]

Optional parameters for LocalSettings.php:

  • $wgCreatePageUwUseVE = true; - use VisualEditor instead of the usual edit form.
