Page Triage is an extension that aims to provide a feature-rich interface for triaging newly-created articles. It is intended to replace the new page patrol core function while adding additional functionality for reviewing, tagging, and improving new articles. It adds a Special:NewPagesFeed page, and a page curation toolbar to new pages for those with the 'patrol' permission. It was developed by the Wikimedia Foundation's Features Engineering team. For additional details see Page Curation.

An important note is that some of the configuration and code is specific to the English-language Wikipedia's workflows and as it's constructed now the extension is pretty much impossible to internationalize. (See bugzilla:48552.)

Download[edit | edit source]

The extension can be retrieved directly from Git [?]:

  • Browse code
  • Some extensions have tags for stable releases.
  • Each branch is associated with a past MediaWiki release. There is also a "master" branch containing the latest alpha version (might require an alpha version of MediaWiki).

Extract the snapshot and place it in the extensions/PageTriage/ directory of your MediaWiki installation.

If you are familiar with git and have shell access to your server, you can also obtain the extension as follows:

cd extensions/
git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/p/mediawiki/extensions/PageTriage.git

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called PageTriage in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once "$IP/extensions/PageTriage/PageTriage.php";
  • Run the update script which will automatically create the necessary database tables that this extension needs.
  • YesY Done - Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

To actually see the extension working:

the new page should appear, flagged as "No categories", "Orphan", etc. To see the page curation toolbar:

  • Login as a user with the 'sysop' permission, or add a group with the "patrol" permission, and add some user to that group, and login as that user.
  • Visit Special:NewPagesFeed
  • Now you should see a "Review" button next to the new page.
  • Click this and you should see the page curation toolbar on the new page.

Configuration[edit | edit source]

The extension is based on the 'patrol' right. For more information about configuring patrolling, see Manual:PatrollingManual:Patrolling.
