Hi, I have a private wiki. First question, how to be sure to have a private wiki, except disconnecting, and trying to access it? Is there a place where the status is shown?

Second question, I'd like to have groups of page. Some page should be public on my wiki, and some should be private or only accessed by some users. How to do that? Thank you. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by PERCE-NEIGE (talkcontribs) 15:51, 29 November 2018‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with --~~~~!

Special:ListGroupRights on your wiki will show you the permission settings for all user groups. MediaWiki's not really designed for permission based content management. The closest you're likely to get is Whitelist Pages -> Special:Contact. --Lewis Cawte (talk) ShoutWiki Staff 00:24, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
Thank you Lewis! According to this page, it's not very good to keep some page private:

"If you need per-page or partial page access restrictions, you are advised to install an appropriate content management package. MediaWiki was not written to provide per-page access restrictions, and almost all hacks or patches promising to add them will likely have flaws somewhere, which could lead to exposure of confidential data. We are not responsible for anything being leaked, leading to loss of funds or one's job."

Is this whitelist namespace extension already installed by default on every wikis, or should I ask to install it on my wiki. where is the list of the extensions that we can ask to activate?

Thank you.
