UserHistory is an extension to the MediaWiki software that keeps track of all articles accessed by a logged in user. It creates an additional Special page in which you can find all your previously visited articles.


You know that time when you read a fascinating fact but completely forgot the article name and where you read it? No more! Add a simple UserHistory extension to your wiki portal and your history will be accessible in a single place.


Using git directly:

cd extensions/
git clone https://github.com/rexem/UserHistory.git

Alternatively download the source code directly from GitHub: https://github.com/rexem/UserHistory/archive/master.zip

Extract the contents, rename the resulting directory to UserHistory, and add it to your MediaWiki extensions folder.


Once downloaded and located in you 'extensions' directory, add the following code to your LocalSettings.php file:

wfLoadExtension( 'UserHistory' );
