The RecentActivityFeed extension lets you view recent activities on your wiki like RecentChanges per user or per page.

It also has a programming interface which makes it easily usable by other extensions like Education Program or Campaigns to view activity from a select group of users.


RecentActivityFeed was originally written by Nischay Nahata, as a WikiWorks consultant.


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


Install this extension and then checkout Special:RecentActivityFeed.
