Check usage and version matrix.

The AuthorComments extension allows the page author to add additional comments to the LockOnCreate page (you must have the LockOnCreate extension already installed on your site). The author can edit/delete comments after posting. Other users can read the comments but cannot edit/add them.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called AuthorComments in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/AuthorComments/AuthorComments.php";
  • Configure as required.
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.


The following configuration is done by default:

$wgAuthorCommentsRegExpBare = '/comment-[0-9A-Z]{8}';
$wgAuthorCommentsRegExp = "~$wgAuthorCommentsRegExpBare$~";
$wgNamespacesWithSubpages[NS_MAIN] = true;


If you have a question, comment, or issue, please add it to the "Discuss" tab on the website that hosts this extension, or email admin@wikipothesis.com.
