Description Jeff Farbman 2007-03-30 20:21:56 UTC
In LocalSettings.php:
$wgGroupPermissions['user']['createpage'] = false;
does not disallow creation of new pages for registered users.

$wgGroupPermissions['user']['edit'] = false;
yeilds restriction of creation of pages, but also disallows editing in general.

See
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help_talk:User_rights#Restriction_for_visitors_not_seeming_to_work
for another report of the same issue.

Note: Installation includes http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:PageSecurity
However, disabling the extension in LocalSettings.php does not fix the problem.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-03-30 21:06:19 UTC
Works for me. Permissions are additive, and all users are members of the "*"
group, which is allowed to create pages under the default settings, so two lines
are needed:

$wgGroupPermissions['*']['createpage'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['user']['createpage'] = false;
