The TopTenPages extension allows to display the most popular pages of the wiki on a page.

Usage[edit | edit source]

 <TopTenPages [offset=OFFSET]>[NUMBEROFPAGES]</TopTenPages>


Format: Number
Default: 0<//code> or -
How many of the most popular Pages to ignore. (e.g. 1 to ignore the main page)
Format: Number
Default: 10
Maximum number of pages to be listed.

Examples[edit | edit source]

To show 10 most popular Pages:


To show 5 most popular Pages:


To omit the most popular page(s):

<TopTenPages offset=1/> 

Note: The offset does not work properly (at least in version 1.2). It does start the list at the specified offset but the list is an ordered list thus displaying numbers. If you specifiy offset=1 as in the example above your list will start with 2. ie. "2 The art of cooking" instead of "1 The art of cooking" thus making this option unusable. I check other sites using this extension and they all don't use this parameter for precisely this reason I suspect.

This Extension makes use of the Wiki-Builtin-Function Special:Popularpages with similar functionality (which is disabled in some installations).
