The Newest Pages extension provides a flexible dual-use special page which lists the most recently created pages on the wiki. This code doesn't use the recentchanges table, and so items do not expire, as with Special:Newpages.

Contents

InstallationEdit

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called NewestPages in your extensions/ folder.

ConfigurationEdit

$wgNewestPagesLimit
The maximum number of pages that can be listed with this extension. In any case, the number of pages listed will be limited to 5000, but this variable can set a lower limit.

UsageEdit

The list can be accessed as a conventional special page, or through inclusion into another page.

Special pageEdit

The special page is located at Special:Newestpages and provides a full interface to filter according to namespace, limit the number of results, and toggle the inclusion of redirect pages.

InclusionEdit

You can include a list of pages into another page using the inclusion mechanism, e.g.

{{Special:Newestpages/User}}

will produce a list of the newest pages in the User namespace.

To select the main namespace, use - as the namespace name, e.g.

{{Special:Newestpages/-}}

To select all namespaces, use all as the namespace name, e.g.

{{Special:Newestpages/all}}

You can also limit the number of results listed, e.g.

{{Special:Newestpages/-/5}}

will produce a list of (at most) the five newest articles.
