Max Semenik <maxsem.wiki(a)gmail.com> asks:
Why are you disabling the API in the first place?
Maybe, there's a better solution?
I am creating a wiki (for a specialized project) that lets anonymous users read articles,
but that is all they can do. They cannot log in, cannot view article history, cannot view
Special Pages, or use any other wiki features. Basically, it's a wiki for a few
writers and thousands of anonymous readers. MediaWiki is a great platform because the
articles are highly interlinked like an encyclopedia.
Unfortunately, when the API is enabled, anybody can still access all the hidden
information (article history, etc.). That's why I want to block the API. But then I
kill search suggestions. :-)
I'm grateful for any advice you may have. Thank you.
