  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/PageBlock/PageBlock.php";
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

User rightsEdit

  • page-block - Allows you to apply/modify/remove restrictions

Known issuesEdit

  • Restrictions will also show up on Special:ProtectedPages in a broken format due to them using the same table

Future improvementsEdit
