MassBlank is an extension that makes it possible for sysops to mass blank pages. It is intended for sites that use Extension:PureWikiDeletion.


Download the extension files and place them in your wiki's extensions/MassBlank/ directory. Then add the following to LocalSettings.php after require_once( "includes/DefaultSettings.php" ); but before any other require_once or include_once calls:



Go to Special:MassBlank in order to mass blank pages recently added by a user or IP address. The special page is listed under Special:SpecialPages as Mass blank. Unlike Nuke, this extension lists only pages and not files.


A log of all blankings is maintained at Special:Log/blank.
