Translate the PrivatePageProtection extension if it is available at translatewiki.net

Check usage and version matrix.

The PrivatePageProtection extension implements a way to restrict access to specific pages using a parser function. Using that parser function, the user groups that should have access to the page can be listed directly in the page.


To restrict access to a page, add this text to the top of the article you want to restrict access to:


would restrict access to the sysop group.


restricts access to members of the autoconfirmed and emailconfirmed groups.

Note Note: Note that user can not save a page which restricts access to groups the user does not belong to. That is, users can not lock themselves out of pages.


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