The Minimum Name Length extension allows to set a minimum length for user names which will be enforced during account creation.

Installation[edit]

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called MinimumNameLength in your extensions/ folder.

Configuration[edit]

To configure the minimum name length for a username, set $wgMinimumUsernameLength in the "LocalSettings.php" file, after the call to include the extension as described in the installation section, e.g.

$wgMinimumUsernameLength = 8;
10 is the default setting. In case you are fine with this you do not need to do anything.
