$wgGroupsRemoveFromSelf allow users to remove their own user rights.
|MediaWiki version:||≥ 1.14|
The syntax since 1.14 is:
$wgGroupsRemoveFromSelf['sysop'] = 'bot'; // adminstrators can remove themselves from the bot group: $wgGroupsRemoveFromSelf['sysop'] = array( 'bot' );
|MediaWiki versions:||1.12 – 1.13|
The syntax of MW 1.12 - 1.13 is:
$wgGroupsRemoveFromSelf = array( 'group1', 'group2', '...' );
Changes in 1.14.0
In r39368, the way this variable works was changed. Before, it allowed every user to remove groups from themselves, now it can be filtered on a per-group basis.
The new syntax is
$wgGroupsRemoveFromSelf['group1'] = array( 'group2', 'group3' ); which allows any user in the group "group1" to remove the groups "group2" and "group3" from themselves.
The old syntax will still work, allowing every user to remove groups from themselves, but it is recommended that you use
$wgGroupsRemoveFromSelf['user'] = array( 'group1', 'group2' ); instead.
You may use
$wgGroupsRemoveFromSelf['group'] = true; to allow users in that group to remove every group from themselves.
