userCan hook for 'delete' needed
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: b

I would like custom handling of permissions for page deletions. There are
userCan hooks for 'read', 'edit', 'move', 'create' but not for 'delete'.

Currently various places check for $wgUser->isAllowed('delete') to decide
whether to display the 'delete'/'undelete' tabs or links, or to decide whether
to allow the deletion action. Most of these checks could be replaced with calls
to $this->mTitle->userCanDelete().

The new userCanDelete function in Title.php would be:

function userCanDelete() {

		return $this->userCan('delete');

I am probably forgetting some of course.
