You can see your watchlist by following the "Ma watchleet" link in your account menu (on the top right). This feature is only available to users who have registered and logged in.
Add pages to watchlist
Afore ye see oniething interestin here, ye actuallie hae tae add some pages til yer watchleet. Dae sae bi naveegatin til ae page that interests ye, n clap oan the stair icon ( ) or "$watch" tab.
Do so by navigating to a page that interests you, and click the star icon (or "Watch" tab).
A page already in your watchlist will be marked with a blue star ( or "Onwatch" tab).
If you want to remove pages from your watchlist, click on the blue star icon (or "Onwatch" tab).
A new watchlist feature is included in MediaWiki 1.35: Watchlist Expiry. With this feature, you can optionally select to watch a page for a temporary period of time. Once the watch period has expired, the page will be automatically removed from your watchlist. You can update the watch period at any time, including switching from temporary to permanent status. Temporarily watched pages are usually represented by a half star (as opposed to a full star, which represents permanently watched pages). To find out when Watchlist Expiry will be enabled on your wiki, you can check out the release schedule on Meta-wiki. For documentation on how to use the feature, please visit Help:Watchlist expiry.
Why a watchlist
The watchleet featur is mainlie uissfu oan aen aafa busie wiki whaur the "Recynt chynges" displey becomes ower muckle tae haunle wi monie chynges that ye dinna want tae follae. Oan ae typeecal low traffeec wiki, ye can normallie see aw o the eeditin acteevitie across the hale wiki wioot feelin owerwhelmed. Oan ae mair busie wiki ye'll fynd that monie eedits ar takin place oan pages that ye personlie fynd less interestin. Tae heelp keep track o chynges that ar mair interestin, stairt watchin pages!
On a typical low traffic wiki, you can normally see all of the editing activity across the whole wiki without feeling overwhelmed. On a more busy wiki you will find that many edits are taking place on pages which you personally find less interesting. To help track changes which are more interesting, start watching pages!
Typiclie ye'd watch pages relatit til yer interest airts, n forby pages whaur ye care maist aneat the content. Gif ye mak ae signeefeecant eedit til ae page, that ye micht want tae watch the page (sae that ye ken whan thair's onie follae-up eedits). Mynd that thaur's ae checkkist oan the eedit screen ("$watch") fer this purpose ava.
If you make a significant edit to a page, you might want to watch the page (so you know when there are any follow-up edits). Note that there is a also a checkbox on the edit screen ("Watch this page") for this purpose.
Your watchlist is personal. You can watch any page you want. That choice will remain private.
Use your watchlist
Oan the watchleet displey, some page names appear in baud. This shaws whather or na ye'v veesited the page tae see the chynge. It's a bit like read/onread emails in aen email inkist. The "$rc" displey will hae some new baud heilichtin ava, bit fer a differant raison. Here baud is jist shawin eedits til pages oan yer watchleet.
This indicates whether or not you have visited the page to see the change. It's a bit like read/unread emails in an email inbox. The "Recynt chynges" display will also have some new bold highlighting, but for a different reason. Here bold is just indicating edits to pages on your watchlist.
You can combine different kinds of filters to display the results you want.
According to the relevant preferences, changes to pages you watch may also be notified to you by email. The main preference for this is "Wab-mail me whan ae page or file on ma watchleet is chynged".
After receiving an email notification for a page, you have to visit the page while logged in if you want to be notified of further changes to the same page.
Watchlist feed with token
You can set up an RSS or Atom feed of your watchlist that is accessible even when logged out:
- Get your watchlist token from Special:Preferences/Watchlist
- Your watchlist RSS feed can be found at , where USERNAME is your username without the User: prefix and TOKEN is the watchlist token.
- If you would prefer an Atom feed rather than an RSS one, add "&feedformat=atom" to the Link of your feed.
- To further customise your watchlist feed add different parameters to the link, see API:Watchlist_feed.
