{{Editcount/User/Namespace}} does not work with ParserFunctions[edit]

{{#expr:{{Editcount/User/Namespace1}} + {{Editcount/User/Namespace2}} }} or similar usage produces an Expression error: Unrecognised punctuation character "?", and {{formatnum:{{Editcount/User}}}} something like: ?UNIQ71ce711.746bf67f9-item-10--QINU?. Greetings, --WiMu 14:14, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

I've noticed this. It makes me sad :( 75.154.103.146
Is there an alternative solution? For the people who want to have two counters added together (e.g. Main account and bot account). 120.20.117.138 04:27, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Prevent insertion of HTML paragraph tags[edit]

I installed the latest revision (MW1.15-r48711) of Extension:Editcount on a couple of wikis I run and found that the syntax

{{Special:Editcount/Username}}

where Username is the username, produces the paragraph-enclosed output

<p>NumberOfEdits
</p>

instead of simply

NumberOfEdits

as is the case with the same syntax on Wikia. How do I prevent those HTML paragraph tags from being created?

Discussed at [1]. Apparently, this is caused by an unfortunate bug in MediaWiki. :( —Lowellian (talk) 07:03, 24 May 2010 (UTC)
THat'd be the reason for the failure of expression functions noted above. I'll be keeping an eye on this. 75.154.107.67

Way to display edit count on all user pages?[edit]

Is there a way to modify the Monobook skin to force the edit count to be displayed somewhere on all user pages once this extension is installed? —Lowellian (talk) 20:50, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

There must be, as it's being done on userpages at Wikia. You may wish to contact them about it at http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contact 75.154.107.67
I raised the question at http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Forum:Editcount_for_All_Users_on_Monobook_Skin and got no responses. :( —Lowellian (talk) 01:30, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
They use the selfmade Masthead-Extension. I use Extension:HeaderFooter for the same issue. --Steevie 10:11, 14 July 2010 (UTC) By the way, i expanded and colorised the Editcount-Extension for my own use (see right) - if anybody is interested let me know. :-)

I am interested! Bud0011 02:00, 11 June 2011 (UTC).
Hi Steevie, why don't you fork your version of this extension, e.g. Extension:Editcount extended or something like that. This would be really cool. It would not be a good idea to patch this exentsion since there a heaps of purists around too. Cheers --[[kgh]] 19:28, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

right align the output[edit]

Hi, I think it would be very nice to right align the columns 2 (number of edits) and 3 (percentages) and add some padding to all of them. This would be great. However this is just cosmetics. Cheers --[[kgh]] 19:32, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Error from remote subversion client:[edit]

Attempting to DL a snapshot via http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:ExtensionDistributor/Editcount is resulting in an
"Error from remote subversion client:"

Lock wait timeout.

Does anyone have a copy of this extension or an alternate download location for it? We are running MW1.17.x -- ShoeMaker   ( Contributions Message )   03:36, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

Is missing[edit]

When going to download, it is listed as missing.

Nazeo (talk) 07:02, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

I'm seeing that too. I wonder if this extension is no longer available? Huwmanbeing (talk) 13:03, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, we recently changed version control systems, some older extensions got left behind. Link should be fixed. Bawolff (talk) 13:07, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
Hmm, the download page is still showing the message No such extension "Editcount". Huwmanbeing (talk) 09:48, 25 July 2012 (UTC)


List by Group[edit]

Would be nice to add a feature to select a group rather than just a single user. Group view could list the members of the group and the cummulative edit count by User ID (not broken down by namespace). I am looking to do something like this right now and have not found anything already out there.---Jaime Lemley 17:15, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Fatal error: Call to a member function getId() on boolean in .../extensions/Editcount/Editcount_body.php on line 26[edit]

Hello, what's wrong with $uid = $user->getId();?

best regards --178.24.206.247 23:18, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Replace that line with
$uid =  is_object( $user ) ? $user->getId() : 0 ;
and it will work

Transcluded edit counts differ from special page edit counts[edit]

See this topic on another wiki. The edit counts seem to differ between the special page and the transcluded count.
