The LookupUser extension allows to retrieve information about a user such as email address, user ID and the user preferences, i.e. everything that the user has specified in their preferences.
This extension also displays the last time a user either made a login, or any edit, which it lists as the "User record last touched:" time and date element of its log (This will be displayed as UTC even if you've set a custom time zone/the server's time zone is different).
- Download and place the file(s) in a directory called
- Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
wfLoadExtension( 'LookupUser' ); // Who can use Special:LookupUser? // If you want that sysops can use it: #$wgGroupPermissions['*']['lookupuser'] = false; #$wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['lookupuser'] = true; // Or, do you want a new user group for this. // (users with the 'userrights' right can add users to this group // only bureaucrats by default) $wgGroupPermissions['*']['lookupuser'] = false; $wgGroupPermissions['lookupuser']['lookupuser'] = true;
- Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
