  • Creating a namespace
  • Editing a namespace
  • Deleting a namespace
  • Turning features for a namespace on or off :
    • Subpages: Activates the use of subpages, which introduce some hierarchical organization into wiki pages.
    • Content namespace: Contents from this namespace will be prioritized in the search results.
    • Category check: Warns users on page save that a page has no associated category.
    • Secured page assignments: Only assigned users can edit pages. By default, only users with reviewer or admin role can assign users. If pages are created by users with only edit rights, they cannot edit the new page after saving it unless they are later assigned to that page.
    • Page templates: allows page templates to be used.
    • Visual editor: activates VisualEditor.

    • Recommendations: displays a recommendations icon next to the page title.
