Deprecation notices
Informs about changes to the availability of configuration parameters
Function type

This page describes the deprecation notices accessible via special page "SemanticMediaWiki"Provides functions for wiki administrators that assist in doing their administration work. On that page it is found in its "Deprecation notices" section right at the top of the special page. It provides information about changes to the availability of configuration parameters. It displays information tailored to the situation of the respective wiki, i.e. information just about the configuration parameters that were manually set in the wiki's "LocalSettings.php" file.

If the wiki uses the defaults as set by Semantic MediaWiki no information will be shown since no actionable tasks need to be completed by the wiki's system operators to either remove or migrate specific configuration.

By default all users who are administrators (user group "sysop") or Semantic MediaWiki administrators (user group "smwadministrator") may see the configuration settings. This can be prevented by removing the user right "smw-admin" from the wiki administrators (user group "sysop") and additionally the respective user should not be assigned to be a Semantic MediaWiki administrator (user group "smwadministrator").

This feature was introduced with Semantic MediaWiki 2.5.1Released on 22 April 2017 and compatible with MW 1.23.0 - 1.29.x..1
