The WhosOnline extension adds a special page - Special:WhosOnline - for viewing the list of users currently viewing a page on the wiki.

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Download and extract the file(s) in a directory called WhosOnline in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once "$IP/extensions/WhosOnline/WhosOnline.php";
  • Run the update script which will automatically create the necessary database tables that this extension needs.
  • If you want anonymous users IP addresses shown, add:
    $wgWhosOnlineShowAnons = true;
    to LocalSettings.php after the above statement. Default is not to show them, for privacy reasons.
  • Done! Navigate to "Special:Version" on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Users who login after the extension is installed can be seen at Special:WhosOnline. Refresh the page if it is blank. As of version 1.3.1 it is possible to include the contents of the special page into a page: {{:Special:WhosOnline}}. If you use {{:Special:WhosOnline/10/shownav}} it will only show 10 users and will have the navigation controls.
