Is it possible to add a custom userright that allows users with that right to edit a namespace?

I have this namespace "Guide" where I only want users with the "editguide" right to be able to edit.

If you go to the namespace settings in ManageWiki, the 3rd textbox down is to specify a user right (could be anything) that should be required to edit the namespace. You can do that for any namespace you want to protect.

This is still valid. Unless already done, the custom right needs to be added on our end in LocalSettings.php, $wgAvailableRights, then it can be used in that input.

@ChaoticShadow after the above PR has been merged; you'll go to https://www.sekaipedia.org/wiki/Special:ManageWiki/namespaces/3002 and replace guide_writer in $wgNamespaceProtection with editguide, then go to https://www.sekaipedia.org/wiki/Special:ManageWiki/permissions/guide_writer#mw-section-unassigned search for editguide add it and save.
PRO Tip: I'd suggest you delete that guide_writer group and recreate it with guide-writer; if you do that, you'll be able to edit the group display name at MediaWiki:Group-guide-writer.

@Ugochimobi Thanks for the instructions and the tip!

Why would you have to that? guide_writer works fine and can be changed at MediaWiki:Group-guide_writer

The _ when used as URL works as a space not an actual underscore. MediaWiki:Group-guide_writer ends up being MediaWiki:Group-guide writer.

Yes, but the message still works I believe.

I'm doubting, that's why I suggested, so they should confirm if it works.

It works with underscores. I have done it before.

Oh, that's so smart of MediaWiki :)
