Details edit

  • $wikiPage: the WikiPage (object) being saved
  • $user: the User (object) saving the article
  • $content: the new article content, as a Content object
  • &$summary: CommentStoreComment object containing the edit comment. Can be replaced with a new one.
  • $isMinor: Boolean flag specifying if the edit was marked as minor.
  • $isWatch: Previously a watch flag. Currently unused, always null.
  • $section: Previously the section number being edited. Currently unused, always null.
  • $flags: All EDIT_… flags (including EDIT_MINOR) as an integer number. See WikiPage::doEditContent documentation for flags' definition.
  • $status: StatusValue object for the hook handlers resulting status. Either set $hookStatus->fatal() or return false to abort the save action.
  • Return value: Return false to abort saving the page.

Earlier versions of MediaWiki (somewhat unintentionally) allowed changing parameters other than $summary. Since 1.32 that does not work anymore; there is currently no exact replacement. If you own the content type, you can use a pre-save transform to change the content.

Examples edit

# Return false to cancel a save and use $status to provide an error message.
$wgHooks['PageContentSave'][] = function( $wikiPage, $user, $content, $summary, $isMinor, $isWatch, $section, $flags, $status) {
	if ( true ) {
		$status->fatal( new RawMessage( "Your Error Message Here!" ) );
	return false;
