The Nuke extension makes it possible for sysops to mass delete pages.

Installation

Configuration

The user right "nuke" is automatically granted to the "sysop" user group. To decouple this and assign this right to a dedicated new user group such as "nuke" add the following to your "LocalSettings.php" file:

$wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['nuke'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['nuke']['nuke'] = true;

Usage

Go to Special:Nuke in order to mass delete pages recently added by a user or IP address. If you don't want to filter by user, you can also just filter by namespace.

Only pages listed in recentchanges table will be shown. By default, this includes all pages created in last 90 days. The special page is listed under Special:SpecialPages as Mass delete.

You can also specify a pattern for the page title. The field accepts SQL wildcards, like %lol%.

All deletions, as usual, are recorded in Special:Log/delete.
