Installing "Restric access by category & group" on Cogitopédie
Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

Hello

I need to have a partly private, partly private wiki. I've asked whitelist extension to be installed, but it doesn't seem allowing that, as you have to type every public page URLs on the page. Managing by categories or namespace would be a lot easier.

I'd like to have "Restrict access by category and group" extension, installed on my wiki.

Thank you very much.

If you need per-page or partial page access restrictions, you are advised to install an appropriate content management package. MediaWiki was not written to provide per-page access restrictions, and almost all hacks or patches promising to add them will likely have flaws somewhere, which could lead to exposure of confidential data.

Yes, I've read this warning (it's the same warning on Whitelist extension page). But how to do that?

Is it not possible to have private pages, and public pages on the same wiki?

Should I create a second wiki to migrate the public pages?

Thank you.

By which, this means a proper CMS designed for this type of workflow.

Yes, I use CMS on a website I own.

So I think you mean it's absolutely not possible on Shoutwiki, a wiki shoult be private OR public. I've created another wiki. Thank you Lewis.
