Check usage and version matrix.

The ForcePreview forces unprivileged users to preview before saving.


Users without the forcepreviewexempt right will be forced to use the "Show preview" (or "Live Preview", if enabled) button before being allowed to save the page.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called ForcePreview in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/ForcePreview/ForcePreview.php";
    $wgGroupPermissions['user']['forcepreviewexempt'] = true;
    // Does not force preview for registered users
  • YesY Done - Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
