All How-To Guides ¶ 

Overview ¶ 

Flags are markers that tell your users and the system important information about the state of a page. They are prominently displayed at the top of the page to inform new readers. You can add flags to categories, wiki pages and guides.

Flags have three primary purposes:

  • To indicate content that needs improvement in a specific area.
  • To mark "stub pages" that are incomplete and need to be written or expanded.
  • To identify classes of content in a way that is useful to users, like 'User-contributed Content' for public sites, or 'Official Guide' for internal sites.

Using Flags ¶ 

Controlling Flag Usage ¶ 

You can restrict certain users from adding flags to guides by adding a privilege setting to the flag. See the How to Create a Flag Guide for instructions on customizing flags.

By adding the text 'privilege=admin' to the flag definition, users will not be able to add this flag to pages, and they will not be able to remove it if it's already on a page.

Example:

[def_flag
|flagid=GUIDE_CONTROVERSIAL_CONTENT
|image=DEFAULT_IMAGE
|title=Controversial page
|text=This page is on a controversial topic, and site administrators are currently reviewing it.
|privilege=admin
]

Removing Flags ¶ 

Flags can be removed from your site, but you should do so with extreme caution. Removing a flag that is in use from the master list will remove it from all pages.

Contribute Page ¶ 

Adding flags to pages automatically adds them to your site's Contribute Page - a list of site pages that need improvement. You can view your site's Contribute page by adding /Contribute to the end of your site URL.

The Contribute Page can be helpful for your authoring team or public community to know which pages to improve.
