Manual:Contents MediaWiki database layout user_newtalk table


The user_newtalk table stores the IDs or IP addresses of users whose talk pages have been changed. This information is used for the display of the "you have new messages" box. The respective row is deleted when the user looks at the page.

FieldsEdit

user_idEdit

Key to user.user_id or "0" for anonymous users.

user_ipEdit

If the user is an anonymous user their IP address is stored here since the user_id of 0 is ambiguous.

user_last_timestampEdit

Timestamp for getting the difference since last view.
