User Access: $wgWhitelistEdit
If true, users must login to edit.
Introduced in version: 1.1.0
Removed in version: 1.5.0
Allowed values: boolean
Default value: false
Other settings: Alphabetical | By function


If true, users must login to edit.

It's not 100% safe, there could be a security hole using that one. Use at your own risks.

Mediawiki Version 1.5 and onwards[edit]

This setting was deprecated in version 1.5.0, and replaced by $wgGroupPermissionsManual:$wgGroupPermissions, specifically the 'edit' permission.

To emulate the old effect of setting:

   $wgWhitelistEdit = true;


   $wgGroupPermissions['*']['edit'] = false;

If $wgWhitelistRead is set, you must also disable the 'read' permission for it to take effect on anonymous users:

   $wgWhitelistRead = array( "Main Page", "Special:Userlogin" );
   $wgGroupPermissions['*']['read'] = false;
