Site Metrics[edit]

While it correctly captures the user login and article creation - the "Site Metrics" tab is always at zero.

I tried installing this with mediawiki 1.19.1 and it makes all special pages unaccessible. 24.130.249.87 21:13, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

Fatal error on MW 1.19[edit]

Fatal error: Call to a member function addMessages() on a non-object in ../wiki/extensions/owa/mw_plugin.php on line 577 --hollosch (talk) 09:03, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

Is this still being maintained? Error after installing.[edit]

Others above have pointed out. There are error messages coming up upon installation. Please if someone is maintaining it address this.

Not working in MW 1.27.1[edit]

Fatal error: Call to undefined method SpecialPage::SpecialPage() in /wiki/extensions/owa/mw_plugin.php on line 499

Which is this part:

   function __construct() {
           parent::SpecialPage('Owa', 'owa_view');
           self::loadMessages();
   }

Anyway, judging by other comments here this extension is clearly incompatible with all but a few outdated versions of MW and/or current versions of Open Web Analytics.

With the Popular pages section in Special pages along with the humble Hit Counter having been dropped from current MW there doesn't seem to be many options except to those who likes to share their visitors data with Google Analytics & Co.

Any tried and tested alternatives, please post them here. -- User:Yellowdog, 2016.09.21 at 14:09‎


There seems to be a solution here :
