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

Contents

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.

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;
