Jump to navigation Jump to search

<languages/> Template:PD Help Page <translate> Patrolled edits is a feature which allows specific users to mark [[<tvar|newpg>Special:NewPages</>|new pages]] and items in <tvar|recent>Special:RecentChanges</> as "patrolled", meaning "approved".</translate> <translate> By default this is only available if you have the [[<tvar|sysop>Special:MyLanguage/Help:Sysops and permissions</>|sysop permission]]; many wikis grant a <tvar|patrol>'patrol'</> permission to groups of users.</translate>

<translate> This feature is useful when reviewing recent changes for undesirable edits, link spam and vandalism.</translate> <translate> This allows people (with permission to do so) to coordinate their patrolling activity, such that edits get checked over once, with less wasted effort (different people checking the same edit).</translate>

<translate> This feature also allows setting trustworthy users' edits to be automatically patrolled, so that the people who review recent changes need not spend time to make unnecessary review.

Customization[edit source]

Enabling/disabling[edit source]

</translate> Template:MW 1.4 <translate> Patrolled edits are enabled by default in MediaWiki 1.4 and later.</translate> <translate> To disable this, set <tvar|1>Template:Ll</> in <tvar|2>Template:Ll</> to <tvar|3>false</>.</translate>

Permissions[edit source]


Template:MW 1.4

<translate> In MediaWiki 1.4, patrolled edits are enabled for all users. To restrict this to sysops, set <tvar|1>$wgOnlySysopsCanPatrol</> in <tvar|LocalSettings>Template:Ll</> to <tvar|2>true</>. </translate>

$wgOnlySysopsCanPatrol = true;

Template:MW 1.5

<translate> In MediaWiki 1.5 and later, patrolled edits are enabled for sysops.</translate> <translate> Use the <tvar|GroupPermissions>Template:Ll</> configuration variable to assign this to new or existing user groups.</translate> <translate> See [[<tvar|rights>Special:MyLanguage/Manual:User rights management</>|Manual:User rights management]].</translate>

<translate> For instance, to create a patrollers group: </translate>

$wgGroupPermissions['patrollers']['patrol'] = true;


Automatic patrolling[edit source]


Template:MW version

<translate> In MediaWiki 1.6 through 1.8, there is a [[<tvar|pref>Special:MyLanguage/Help:preferences</>|user preference]] available to users who are able to mark edits as patrolled. When set, this causes their edits to be patrolled automatically.

This option is not available if the patrolled edits feature is switched off. </translate>

Template:MW 1.9

<translate> In MediaWiki 1.9 this user preference was removed and replaced by a new "autopatrol" right, assigned only to sysops by default. Also, users cannot mark their own edits as patrolled.

Marker[edit source]

The formatting of the unpatrolled edit marker can be altered using CSS. The exclamation mark displayed on the Recent changes log is styled using the <tvar|1>span.unpatrolled</> class.

Log[edit source]

Patrolling actions are listed in the Patrol log ([<tvar|url></> example]).
