I had an issue when upgrading to 1.27.1 and I was unable to edit anything or get access to admin tools. I disabled the extension and everything is working now.

Unfortunately I came to this page to report the same thing. Sadly since it's marked unmaintained I expect it's done. The issue seems to be similar to the issue that Extension:Lockdown had before someone patched it.

@Werdna if this extension was marked wrongly and you're still around it would be awesome if you can fix it. thanks

@Kghbln turns I mistakenly assumed Lockdown 1.27 was the problem when it was this extension (since the problem was the same as the one described in the talk page for Lockdown). btw, thanks for making the note I added to Semantic Mediawiki about Compatibility Mode (when running Cargo also) much more noticeable.

Thanks Chris for the feedback. Yeah, this extension provides just a first line against curiosity but ... Would be nice to see this come to life again.

Is there something I can do to get this to work in another namespace?

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

If this extension still works it should probably work as soon as this other namespace was enabled for holding semantic data. (talkcontribs)

That was it

"Editable by" can't be used as a property name on this wiki

Nicolas NALLET (talkcontribs)

I got this message when trying this extension on this page of my wiki

My conf is (More details):

  • MediaWiki 1.21.2
  • PHP 5.4.30 (fpm-fcgi)
  • MySQL 5.5.14

Had someone the same problem ?


CrystianMarquez (talkcontribs)

I have, the same problem, do you have any idea to how fix that?

in my wiki only works the properties: Visible to, Visible to user; Visible to group...

all extensions to Semantic MediaWiki moved to a new section on the version list of MediaWiki on Special:Version specially created for them. For consistency reasons it would be nice to see this one there too. I have looked at the source code of another semantic extension to see how it is done there:

$wgExtensionCredits[defined( 'SEMANTIC_EXTENSION_TYPE' ) ? 'semantic' : 'other']

Thank you and cheers

Hi, I just tested this extension and learned that it does not work. The failsafe does not work since even sysops are not allowed to view and edit pages. Even if I set the permissions on a page for group sysop I am not allowed to view and edit. The same applied after I set a specific user (=me). I tried both English and localised words (User - Benutzer, Sysop - Administrator). I am using SMW 1.5.6 on MW 1.16.5. I would love to see this extension work. Cheers

I don't know if things have changed since you wrote, but it seems to be working correctly now.

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

Yeah, I do not know what I did back then. Perhaps it was me, perhaps the extension. I have a feeling that it might very well have been me. :|

Hi Werdna, just to make sure on how to set up a whitelist:

I will have to insert

The allowed values for this property are:
* [[Allows value::User:Werdna]]
* [[Allows value::User:Kghbln]]

on page [[Property:Editable by]] to provide edit rights to these two users for the pages containing the property [[Editable by::whitelist]].


Samwilson (talkcontribs)

My understanding is that the whitelist should be on the page that one is protecting (or included into it, in a template). So you'd have

[[Editable by::whitelist]]
[[Editable by user::User:Werdna]]
[[Editable by user::User:Kghbln]]

I don't think setting these on the property itself does anything.

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

Heiya Samwilson, thank you for your reply. I just tried your approach with success. I totally misunderstood the instructions provided. I did not grasp that the so called "main" property with one of its values public/users/whitelist is indeed a kind of "parameter" property indicating the contents of the e.g. whitelist

[[Editable by::whitelist]]


[[Editable by group::trusted users]]
[[Editable by user::User:Kghbln]]


In case you do not set this "parameter" property one will add groups or users without any result. This is what I have done. Admittedly I would never have guessed this. Do not ask me why. O_o Thank you for helping me out on this one. :) Cheers

This extension looks very promising. I hope it doesn't get abandoned! Badon 04:00, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
