Help:Pending changes


Pending changes is a way to configure a page so that it displays to readers only edits that have been reviewed.

What it means for a page to be pending changes protected[edit]

On a pending changes protected page, edits by unregistered (or new) users are not shown to readers until reviewed by a pending changes reviewer. This is thus a lesser form of protection than semi-protection.

When is a page pending changes protected[edit]

A page is pending changes protected by an administrator when it matches specific criteria set forth by the wiki's protection policy.

How to review pending edits[edit]

All pending edits appear at Special:PendingChanges, which provides the option to list only those from pending changes-protected pages (or actively deferred, if deferred changes is enabled), and can be reviewed by users with review permission.

How to enable this feature[edit]

The feature requires the flagged revisions extension, it can be enabled by setting $wgFlaggedRevsProtection to true in local settings, and can be used alongside its deferral feature (enabled via $wgFlaggedRevsDeferral).
