The GroupPortal extension allows for different groups to be redirected to different main pages.


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


Edit the "MediaWiki:Groupportal" system message and add portals with user group|portal, e.g.

*|Main Page
sysop|Administrator's noticeboard
RandomGroup|Some page
