Required configuration edit
In order for users to be intercepted, they must have the
createpage right, must not have the
createinmainns right, the page they are trying to create must be in the main namespace (and not yet exist) and the page pointed to by
$wgArticleCreationLandingPage must exist.
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['createpagemainns'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['user']['createpagemainns'] = false;
The default value of
$wgArticleCreationLandingPage is "Project:Article wizard".
This page must be created to intercept page creation for these users.
Configuration settings edit
$wgArticleCreationLandingPage(string): the name of the wiki page to which users should be redirected if intercepted.
$wgUseCustomLandingPageStyles(bool): Whether to load custom CSS for the landing page.
User right edit
The extension adds a new user right called
createpagemainns which permits users to create new pages in the main namespace.
This right is given by default to all users.
Users without this right are prohibited from creating main namespace pages, and when they attempt to (by clicking on a red link, for example) they're redirected to the Article Creation Workflow landing page.
