Item1091: AntiWikiSpamPlugin needs whitelist capability

Priority: Normal
Current State: Closed
Released In: n/a
Target Release:
Applies To: Extension
Component: AntiWikiSpamPlugin

The Regex's used by AntiWikiSpamPlugin are quite expansive and result in false positives. There needs to be a way to whitelist trusted users to avoid false positives.

  • Add a trusted users group - default AntiWikiSpamBypassGroup Group name is set by bin/configure. If unset, no bypass processing will occur.
  • Add the current user WikiName to the error message logged when spam regex is matched. This will be logged even if user is in the whitelist group.
  • Only throw the error for users that are not a member of this group
