Request for RevisionDelete
- Home page
- MediaWiki configuration (user rights) change.
- Installation notes
- The following line needs to be added/uncommented to
$wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['deleterevision'] = true;
- Reason for request
- This change will allow sysops to hide the revision text and the edit summary, essentially performing a partial deletion. This is useful as it means sysops no longer have to delete pages such as Help:Ask an account question and restore selected revisions (which there are some issues with when on large pages) when a user accidentally posts personal information, such as access keys and passwords.
- What else uses it
- The Wikimedia family uses Oversight; RevisionDelete effectively superseded Oversight.
- Possible pitfalls
- None that we are aware of except that adding something may break something else.
