The OrphanedTalkPages extension adds a new Special page to MediaWiki: Special:OrphanedTalkPages. This special page lists all talk pages that do not have an accompanying page.

Installation[edit]

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

Configuration parameters[edit]

$wgOrphanedTalkPagesExemptedNamespaces
Controls which talk namespaces should be ignored when looking for orphaned talk pages. This variable is an array of namespace ids and is empty by default.
$wgOrphanedTalkPagesIgnoreUserTalk
Determines if the user talk namespace (3, or NS_USER_TALK) should be ignored when looking for orphaned talk pages. This variable is a boolean and set to true by default.

Other important notes[edit]

  • The query that this special page uses is considered expensive. This means that when $wgMiserMode is enabled, the results will be served from cache.
  • The special page may report talk pages as orphaned when they are not. The most common situation where this happens is File talk pages when $wgUseInstantCommons or $wgForeignFileRepos is enabled.
