Translate the CreateWiki extension

CreateWiki is an extension which allows registered users of one wiki site on a wiki farm to request new wiki sites or create new wiki sites on that wiki farm. It provides three additional special pages:

  • Special:RequestWiki — for requesting new wikis
  • Special:RequestWikiQueue — for viewing the new wiki request queue and handling new wiki requests
  • Special:CreateWiki — which allows some users to create new wiki sites

This particular version of CreateWiki is based on the earlier Checkuser extension by Tim Starling and Aaron Schulz, and another CreateWiki extension by KuduIO.

Warning Warning: CreateWiki was designed and created specifically for the Miraheze wiki farm, and as such, may not always work on different sites or configurations. While efforts have been made to make it more usable by non-Miraheze wiki sites, this extension is still a primarily Miraheze-focused extension and aligns to Miraheze's configuration and style.

All users (those in the User group by default) can request new wiki sites at Special:RequestWiki. Once they have requested a new wiki, they will be assigned a queue number and can check the status of their request at Special:RequestWikiQueue.

Those with the 'Wiki Creators' (createwiki) user right are able to check Special:RequestWikiQueue, and handle all wiki creation requests. At that page, they can either approve or decline wiki requests, and also change the visibility of a request. Everyone can check RequestWikiQueue at any time to see all requests ever submitted or filter by approved, declined, or in review tasks. Users can also filter by user.

Those with the 'Wiki Creators' (createwiki) user right can also bypass Special:RequestWiki, and manually create new wiki sites themselves at Special:CreateWiki.
