ArticleInfo shows relevant information about an article at the top of the page in the state bar. This extension is made to enhance the quality assurance of internal wikis. It supports readers and and maintainers by putting most wanted information at the top of an article.


For internal wikis it is often necessary, to see at first sight when and by whom the last change of an article was made. Furthermore it is often interesting: Who is responsible for this article? Are there any subpages? Is there a review process and is this article approved?

ArticleInfo is a place for all those questions around quality assurcance. It is a result of many internal wiki projects.

  • time of recent change
