The Newest Pages extension provides a flexible dual-use special page which lists the most recently created pages on the wiki. This code doesn't use the recentchanges table, and so items do not expire, as with Special:Newpages.

Installation[edit source]

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called NewestPages in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/NewestPages/NewestPages.php";
  • Configure as required.
  • YesY Done - Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Configuration[edit source]

The maximum number of pages that can be listed with this extension. In any case, the number of pages listed will be limited to 5000, but this variable can set a lower limit.

Usage[edit source]

The list can be accessed as a conventional special page, or through inclusion into another page.

Special page[edit source]

The special page is located at Special:Newestpages and provides a full interface to filter according to namespace, limit the number of results, and toggle the inclusion of redirect pages.

Inclusion[edit source]

You can include a list of pages into another page using the inclusion mechanism, e.g.


will produce a list of the newest pages in the User namespace.

To select the main namespace, use - as the namespace name, e.g.


To select all namespaces, use all as the namespace name, e.g.


You can also limit the number of results listed, e.g.


will produce a list of (at most) the five newest articles.
