The LastModified extension displays text on the page showing the last modified page time. See also Timestamp Position Modification.

Customization[edit | edit source]

Using the $wgLastModifiedRange parameter, you can change the display range (or timelimit) used by the extension. For example, if you only want to display the message for articles that were updated less than 30 days ago, set this value to 2. This will display a message like: "Last updated 20 days ago." You will not see this message for articles that were modifed more than 30 days ago.

The parameter only accepts an integer value. Here are the options available:

  • 0: years - display: years, months, days, hours, minutes, seconds
  • 1: months - display: months, days, hours, minutes, seconds
  • 2: days - display: days, hours, minutes, seconds
  • 3: hours - display: hours, minutes, seconds
  • 4: minutes - display: minutes, seconds
  • 5: seconds - display: seconds

The default used by the extension is "0".

Download[edit | edit source]

The extension can be retrieved directly from Git [?]:

  • Browse code
  • Some extensions have tags for stable releases.
  • Each branch is associated with a past MediaWiki release. There is also a "master" branch containing the latest alpha version (might require an alpha version of MediaWiki).

Extract the snapshot and place it in the extensions/LastModified/ directory of your MediaWiki installation.

If you are familiar with git and have shell access to your server, you can also obtain the extension as follows:

cd extensions/
git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/p/mediawiki/extensions/LastModified.git

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Download and extract the file(s) in a directory called LastModified in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once "$IP/extensions/LastModified/LastModified.php";
  • Done! Navigate to "Special:Version" on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Development[edit | edit source]

This extension was created during Tech Days 2011 at the San Francisco Wikimedia office.
