The PrivateDomains extension restricts wiki editing to users with a certain email address. It adds a new special page, Special:PrivateDomains, to allow changing the name of the organization and to add "trusted" email addresses. Bureaucrats and staff members can access this special page by default.
If a non-privileged user (someone who does not have the organization's email address) tries to edit, they see a warning box about the fact that they cannot change pages on the wiki. Be aware that the user can't view pages' wikitext source either.
- Download and place the file(s) in a directory called
- Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
wfLoadExtension( 'PrivateDomains' );
- Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
While PrivateDomains settings are meant to be edited via Special:PrivateDomains, they are stored in the MediaWiki: namespace and thus they can also be directly edited.
