The Sanctions extension adds special page Special:Sanctions and let users handle sanctions against spammers, for instance. This extension assumes it could be used in a wiki without administrators and/or sysop.

InstallationEdit

Sanctions requires the Echo extension, the Renameuser extension and the StructuredDiscussions extension be installed as a prerequisite.
  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called Sanctions in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/Sanctions/Sanctions.php";
    
  • Run the update script which will automatically create the necessary database tables that this extension needs.
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
