The DeleteBatch extension adds a special page, Special:DeleteBatch, where users with the 'deletebatch' right can delete multiple pages easily.

UsageEdit

The user can delete pages either through the form or by uploading a text file containing the names (and optional delete reasons) of the deletable pages.

The syntax is:

  • page name|Reason for deletion

So if you wanted to delete the page called "Test" with the reason "no longer needed", you'd type:

Test|no longer needed

in the form on Special:DeleteBatch. This extension was based off on the maintenance script with the same name .

InstallationEdit

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

ConfigurationEdit

By default, this extension lets only bureaucrats delete batches. You can change it to, e.g., let sysops delete batches:

$wgGroupPermissions['bureaucrat']['deletebatch'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['deletebatch'] = true;
