Goal

Provide the opportunity to mark pages for deletion and collect them on a summary page for a peer review or later deletion by the administrator.

Answer

The mark for deletion process works this way

  • put a snippet in your template which gives you a delete link
  • when clicked, it leads to a form. Here you can give a short statement why the page should be deleted. Then
    • a note is put on the page about its delete status
    • a note is put on a summary page that collects all marked sites by week (example)

Installation

Note: "pagename" refers to "Group.Name" Include markfordelete.phpΔ in your config file:

 include_once("$FarmD/cookbook/markfordelete.php");   

Set the parameters:

Mandatory

$MarkForDeletePagename
pagename of the summary page
$MarkForDeleteForm
pagename of the wiki site with the form (See Notes)

Optional

$MarkForDeleteAllreadyOnPage
message shown if a page is allready marked for deletion. can be a pagename for redirection or html formated string
$MarkForDeletePutOnPage
can be a pagename which is included or wiki markup formated string. (e.g. a Sticky Note)
$MarkForDeleteLinkFmt
format of the template link
$MarkForDeleteExcludePattern
pagename strings which should not get an delete link in RegEx style "term1|term2|...|termX"

Localization

  'Week from' => 'Header on the summary page',
  'New Deletion Candidate' => 'Text in the RecentChanges for the summary page',
  'Marked for Deletion' => 'Text in the RecentChanges for the marked page',
  'Delete' => 'Text of the template snippet',

The Template Snippet

Put in your skin template file

  <!--function:MarkForDeleteLink-->

which outputs the deletion link. The deletion link will only be set if the current page is not already on the summary page and its name doesn't match someting in $MarkForDeleteExcludePattern.

The Form

There is a new Form variable which holds the name of the site you want to mark. The pagename of the form is set by $MarkForDeleteForm.

The form should look something like this:

You want to mark the site  [[{$PageToDelete}]] for deletion.

(:input form "" post:)
Why should the page be deleted:
(:input text shortexplain size=80 :)
(:input hidden action markfordelete :)
(:input hidden perform true :)
(:input hidden pagetodelete {$PageToDelete} :) 
(:input submit value="Go":)
(:input end:)

You want to mark the site for deletion.

Why should the page be deleted:

Notes

You can bypass the form, if you want, by providing paramters when calling the markfordelete action:

  perform=1
  pagetodelete=pagename
