Translate the EditCountNeue extension

The EditCountNeue extension allows wikis to display the number of edits of a user, via a special page or a parser function. It is inspired by Editcount , and is rewritten to have more functionality and better support for newer versions of MediaWiki. EditCountNeue is a replacement of Editcount, please disable or remove Editcount before enabling EditCountNeue.


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


Special page[edit]

EditCountNeue adds a special page called Special:EditCount under Users and rights group. Select a user and click to see the number of edits of the user. It can also be accessed from Special:EditCount/<username>.

Parser function[edit]

EditCountNeue also adds a parser function to retrieve the number of edits of a user. The syntax is:

{{#editcount: <username> [ | <namespace1> [ | <namespace2> ... ] ] }}

username is required and is the name of the target user.

namespace1, namespace2 and so on are all optional and are the namespace names or namespace numbers of your need. If specified, the function returns the edit number of the specified namespaces. If omitted, returns the edit number of all namespaces.

An invalid username causes the function to return 0 as the result. An invalid namespace behaves as though that namespace argument does not exist. If all specified namespaces are invalid, the function returns 0.


EditCountNeue adds one API module list=editcount for query number of edits via API.

  • ecuser - The users to retrieve number of edits for.
  • ecnamepsace - Only list number of edits in these namespaces.
