Feature request: Select by namespace

It would be wonderful if you could also select by namespace rather than only exclude by category.

The extension find also all new uploaded media (Pictures, Files). When i create a new article the extension will find the articles an all of the uploaded pictures i used.

i would like to see only the articles and no media.


i can see in the source code that a "filter by categorie" is already build in.


i try to change the code for that ... but i did not understand how i can filter the database query for this. i use (dirty) a simple string search to filter this after the query.

Very bad solution.


Any Ideas how to filter "Media:" Content out?

@Lucamauri: You recently have done cool work for this extension. I also see valid use cased to filter out certain namespaces. Perhaps you could give it a shot. :)

Thanks a lot. No worries. We all know that this is volunteer effort. Having the possibility not just to filter by category but by namespace will be a really great improvement. We will sit tight. :)

Use the recently released version 1.5 for best experience.

@Vishkujo: I saw that you marked this extension as unstable, i.e. not working with MW 1.33+. May I ask you what error you are seeing, or what the server is logging as an error?

I was getting this: Error: invalid magic word 'RecentActivity'

213.195.99.217 (talkcontribs)

Efectivamente no funciona en la 1.34 tampoco. si se comenta la instrucción $wgExtensionFunctions[]        = 'efSetupRecentActivity'; ya no da errores, pero es como si no estuviera.

It doesn't work in 1.34 either. if the $ wgExtensionFunctions [] = 'efSetupRecentActivity' statement is commented; It no longer gives errors, but it is as if it were not there.

I have modified the extension code to better follow MediaWiki's standard extension guidelines, to fix the reported issue and a few others I found along the way. My fix is hosted in this fork https://gitlab.com/lucamauri/extensions as it is impossible for me access the current extension repository that seems to be in private Git service.

I hope @Nad can help integrating those modification in the current repository, or move it back to a public Git service so we can contribute directly.

Thanks a lot. Indeed, having this is the main repo will be great!

Lucamauri (talkcontribs)

Nad fixed the repository, so the extension is now working with recent MediaWiki versions.

Cool, thanks a lot!
