I had a sort-of-similar requirement (wanted articles editable only by
logged in users, but to allow comments to be left on talk pages by
anyone including anons).
You have to edit the source to get this functionality though. See:
It works for me, and maybe you could use something like this to get
what you want? I agree it would be nice to have broader access
countrol functionality included in MediaWiki out-of-the-box.
All the best,

Would anyone be interested in a fun project of integrating this player into the
wiki's file display?
* Check the file headers for presence of audio and/or video streams, and the
width/height of the video
* Set up the <applet> with appropriate parameters
* (?) add some JS widgets to pause/play/restart if the applet can't be coerced
into showing such widgets itself
* Have JS to check for missing Java plugin and degrade gracefully to a

* Integrate the player into ImagePage display of the file

* Integrate the player into inline display in wiki pages (Not sure if this is a
Note that Java applet security limitations mean that the applet can only load
files from the server the applet came from, so it may have to be embedded in an
<iframe> or something to run off upload.wikimedia.org.

Hi all -
I'm trying to customize the nav bar in my out-of-the-box installation of
MediaWiki 1.4.3. I just want to add an "Upload file" link to the
toolbox, as seen on wikipedia.org and mediawiki.org.
I've checked the documentation at mediawiki.org, but it hasn't been any
help. I'm sure I'm just missing something; I hope someone can help.
All of the documentation on mediawiki.org says that, to customize the
nav bar in MediaWiki 1.4, you must modify an array named
$wgNavigationLinks, found in /includes/defaultsettings.php and/or
/localsettings.php. However, the files specified in the docs do not
contain any reference to a variable by this name. In fact, I've searched
my entire webroot and all subfolders, and *no* files in my installation
mention this variable.
I've also looked at the docs for other versions of MediaWiki, but none
of those seem to apply to my installation; they all refer to files which
don't exist in my webroot.

I want to be able to mirror an article from our wiki onto a separate
website, leaving out the navigation links, tabs and other material
that isn't specific to my article. Is there a technique for doing this?
