DetailsEdit

Maximum number of calls per parse to expensive parser functions such as PAGESINCATEGORY. Expensive parser functions include:

  • {{#ifexist:}} (from Extension:ParserFunctions )
  • {{PAGESINCATEGORY}}/{{PAGESINCAT}} (a Magic Word)
  • {{PAGESIZE}} (a Magic Word)
  • {{REVISIONUSER}} and {{REVISIONTIMESTAMP}} when used with the optional argument to specify a different page
  • {{CASCADINGSOURCES}} (a Magic Word)
  • Some Lua MediaWiki-related functions (see Lua reference manual), including mw.incrementExpensiveFunctionCount() which can be used to manually mark a Lua code path as expensive.

The count is in the html-source of the page. Even without saving, the count for any wikitext can be checked by checking the html-source of the preview page for that wikitext.
