The Create User Page extension checks whether the user has a user page and, if not, creates it with the content as specified in $wgCreateUserPage_PageContent. The check is done when the user logs in if $wgCreateUserPage_OnLogin is set to true (the default), otherwise the check is done on every page load. The user account to be used for user page creation can be set with $wgCreateUserPage_AutoCreateUser which is by default the user itself for whom the page is being created.

InstallationEdit

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

ConfigurationEdit

The content to put on the user page when it is created. Defaults to {{User}}.
