Translate the UserPageViewTracker extension if it is available at translatewiki.net

The UserPageViewTracker extension allows users to track the usage of the wiki from Special:UserPageViewTracker. It will display the pages visited per users, number of visits, and date of the last visit.

Every time a user visits a page, a table in the database gets updated with the hit count for the user on that page. In other words, for every page-user combination, there is a hit count.

The special page displays this information and allows the filtering of users to either include only or exclude. A list of users can be provided by using the pipe symbol (|) as a delimiter.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called UserPageViewTracker in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php :
    wfLoadExtension( 'UserPageViewTracker' );
  • Run the update script which will automatically create the necessary database tables that this extension needs.
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
