The TimelineStats extension collects statistics data and displays them in timeline-graphics: count of users total and active, edits, pages and images.

This extension uses Highcharts to display graphics.


  • Download and place the TimelineStats files in a directory called TimelineStats in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code to the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file: wfLoadExtension( 'TimelineStats' );
  • Run maintanence/update.php to create sql tables and put data there.
  • Put /extentions/TimelineStats/maintanence/update.php to crontab of your system to call it weekly. It needed to collect statistics information. I know that is not very easy so let's discuss how to do it simpler.
