The ForcePreview forces unprivileged users to preview before saving.

Usage[edit source]

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.

Installation[edit source]

  • 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.
