WatchList provides different views of the watchlist entries in multiple places of the wiki.

Usage / features Edit

The watchlist has the following additional functions:

  • The UserSidebar shows entries from a user's own watchlist.
  • An overlay dialog window provides a quick view of the watchlist. From here, users can delete articles from their watchlist or jump to the version comparison for unviewed changes.
  • A view of the watchlist can be included in the page content (tag-based). Example: <bs:watchlist count="10" maxtitlelength="50"/>
  • Discussion pages are implicitly watched by MW. These implicit entries do not appear in the list. But a discussion page can be added explicitly.
  • Long titles are truncated.
