Lockdown group permissions per namespace.


The Lockdown extension implements a way to restrict access to specific namespaces and special pages to a given set of user groups. This provides a more finely grained security model than the one provided by the default $wgGroupPermissions and $wgNamespaceProtection settings.

The following pages about the security model used by MediaWiki per default may be helpful to understand the instructions below:


Managing groups[<a href="https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Extension:Lockdown&action=edit&section=7" title="Edit section: Managing groups">edit]

You can control which user belongs to which groups with the page Special:Userrights. Only existing groups will be proposed, but you can "create" a new group by creating an entry for it in Manual:$wgGroupPermissions(even if you don't actually need to set a permission there, but it has to appear on the left hand side of the array).
