The WhosOnline extension adds a special page, Special:WhosOnline, which shows the list of all users (optionally including anonymous users) currently viewing the wiki. It creates this list by finding all users who last viewed any page on the wiki less than the time ago specified by the setting $wgWhosOnlineTimeout, which by default is one hour.


  • Die Erweiterung herunterladen und die Datei(en) in ein Verzeichnis namens WhosOnline im Ordner extensions/ ablegen.
  • Folgenden Code am Ende Ihrer LocalSettings.php hinzufügen:
    wfLoadExtension( 'WhosOnline' );
    $wgWhosOnlineShowAnons = true;
    // If you want anonymous users IP addresses shown. Default is not to show them, for privacy reasons.
  • Führen Sie das Aktualisierungsskript aus, welches automatisch die notwendigen Datenbanktabellen erstellt, die diese Erweiterung braucht.
  •   Done – Zu Special:Version in dem Wiki (bei Einstellung auf deutsch nach Spezial:Version) navigieren, um die erfolgreiche Installierung der Erweiterung zu überprüfen.


Users who login after the extension is installed can be seen at Special:WhosOnline. Refresh the page if it is blank. It is possible to transclude the contents of the special page into another page: {{:Special:WhosOnline}}. If you use {{:Special:WhosOnline/10/shownav}} it will only show 10 users and will have the navigation controls.
