The CleanChanges extension is based on enhanced changes list, but it tries to be more concise by hiding less important information by default. It needs JavaScript to be fully functional. It works best in wikis where the number of changes per user is high.

It also provides two extra filters: by user and by language code suffix.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called CleanChanges in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php :
    wfLoadExtension( 'CleanChanges' );
    $wgDefaultUserOptions['usenewrc'] = 1;
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.


Parameters provided
  • $wgCCUserFilter - defaults to "true". It is needed to filter by user.
  • $wgCCTrailerFilter - defaults to "false". It is needed to filter by language (code suffix).
  • $wgCCFiltersOnly - defaults to "true". TODO: document what to do with it.
