Check usage and version matrix.

The EditPageTracking extension records the time new users first visited an edit page, for statistical and behavioural purposes. It was used by MoodBar extension to determine whether or not to show the MoodBar to a new user.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called EditPageTracking in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/EditPageTracking/EditPageTracking.php";
    $wgEditPageTrackingRegistrationCutoff = '20110721103700'; // Replace with the time you installed the extension. Format: YYYYMMDDHHMMSS
  • YesY Done - Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.


This is the timestamp when the extension takes effect. Users registered before this time will not have data recorded, because it would be incorrect. It is a standard MediaWiki 14-character timestamp: a four-digit year, and two digits each of month, day, hour, minute and second.
