Certaines anciennes révisions de cette page ont été importées sous licence CC BY-SA. Seules les nouvelles contributions sont dans le domaine public.

La liste des contributions d'un utilisateur permet de voir les contributions faites par un utilisateur en particulier.

Vérifier vos contribution est utile pour vous rappeler les pages sur lesquelles vous avez travaillé (et accéder rapidement à ces pages). Cela permet également de vérifier s'il y a eu un ajout conséquent (voir ci-dessous). Cela rend possible le suivi de pages même sans les avoir ajoutées à votre liste de suivi. Les listes de contributions d'autres utilisateurs peuvent également être consultées et sont utiles pour savoir comment ces utilisateurs contribuent. Ces pages peuvent être utilisées pour lutter contre les vandalismes, violations de droit d'auteur, etc.

Ces pages de contributions sont spécifiques à chaque projet, une liste de contributions d'un utilisateur sur la Wikipédia anglophone ne montrera pas les contribution de cet utilisateur sur la Wikipédia francophone, sur Wikinews ou sur tout autre projet.

Accéder à une page de contribution d'un utilisateur

Accéder à votre page de contributions

  • Pour accéder à votre page de contribution, vous devez être connecté et cliquer sur l'onglet Contributions. Cet onglet se trouve soit en haut de la page soit sur sa partie gauche.
  • Si vous n'êtes pas connecté et voulez accéder à la page de contributions de votre adresse IP actuelle, vous devez inscrire « Spécial:Contributions » dans la barre de recherche et cliquer sur entrée.

Accéder à une page d'un autre utilisateur

  • Si l'utilisateur possède un compte, allez sur sa page d'utilisateur et sélectionnez « User contributions » dans la partie Tools située à gauche de l'écran. Cela fonctionne même si la page utilisateur n'a pas encore été créée.
  • Si l'utilisateur n'a pas de compte, deux méthodes sont possibles :
    • Cliquer sur l'adresse IP lors de la consultation de la page ⧼RecentChanges⧽ ou d'un historique d'une page.
    • Inscrire l'adresse IP dans la barre de recherche et cliquer sur entrée

Utiliser une page de contributions de l’utilisateur

Ci-dessous voici un exemple d'utilisation d'une page de contributions utilisant l'habillage par défaut :

Exemple d'une page de contributions.

Les contributions sont listées de la plus récente à la plus ancienne. Chaque contribution est indiquée sur une ligne et est accompagnée de l'heure et de la date, du nom de la page, du résumé de modification et d'autres informations complémentaires. Voici quelques fonctions disponible sur la page de contributions :

  1. The username, IP address or IP range appears here, along with links to the log pages. If you are viewing a single user, a link to their talk page is also shown.
  2. Here you can change which user to view contributions for. This can be a username, IP address, or IP range (in CIDR notation). Alternatively, you can tick the first radio button option view only contributions from new users.
  3. You can select a namespace to filter your results. Par exemple, pour ne voir que les modèles sélectionnez Modèle et appuyez sur Rechercher. You can also invert your namespace selection so that contributions are shown only from all other namespaces. Finally, you can use the "Associated namespace" checkbox to show subject and talk pages of the selected namespace.
  4. The tag filter allows you to show only contributions with a specific tag. See #17 below.
  5. These options allow to show only edits that are the latest revisions to the page and edits that are page creations. You can also show only minor edits. Finally, if the wiki has the ORES extension installed, another option allows you to hide edits that are "probably good", which may make it easier to locate edits that are vandalism.
  6. These options allow you to view contributions within a specific date range. Both the start and end date are optional.
  7. These links take you to the users most recent edits (les plus récentes), oldest edits (les plus anciennes) or the next or previous page of edits (1 plus récente / 1 plus ancienne). The blue numbers that follow list the number of edits displayed on a page - 20, 50, 100, 250 or 500. A higher number increases the length of a page but reduces the number of pages. The number you select replaces n in the links to the previous or next pages e.g. (100 plus récentes / 100 plus anciennes).
  8. This gives the time and date of the edit. This link is called a "permanent link", which will bring you to the revision of the page at that specific date and time.
  9. (diff) takes you to a diff page showing the changes between that edit and the previous revision. The revision after the edit appears below the changes so you can see the result of the edit. (hist) takes you to the page history, so you can see all edits made to that page. This can be useful if someone has updated a page you have worked on, and you want to see their changes.
  10. m stands for minor edit (small corrections to a page). In this area you might also see the symbol N, indicating the edit was a page creation.These help you understand the type of changes that have been made.
  11. This shows the size of the diff, in number of bytes. Negative values are shown in red, while green indicates content was added, and a gray 0 indicates the number of bytes did not change with the edit.
  12. This is the name of the page the edit took place on. The current page name is used, so if the page has been renamed the name displayed will be different.
  13. This is the username, shown when viewing an IP range or new user contributions. This is not shown when are viewing contributions of a single user or IP.
  14. This is the edit summary. This edit summary begins with an arrow link and grey text. This means the user has only edited a section of the page (named in the grey text). This text is automatically added when you edit a section. The black text is a standard edit summary and is added by the user.
  15. (actuelle) signifies that the edit is the current revision. The page is as the user last saved it. This can be used to watch pages (if your last edit to the page does not display (actuelle) the page has been changed). Sysops also have a rollback link here, see m:Help:Reverting.
  16. The grayed out and struck timestamp means the edit was revision deleted or suppressed by a sysop, and cannot be viewed publicly. It is possible to suppress the username and edit summary of the edit too, in which case they will also be grayed out with a strikethrough.
  17. These are tags that were applied to the edit. These are added automatically by the software (such as AbuseFilter), and not by the editor.

If the page is newly created the mark N is also shown.

But the following information does not appear:

  • Edits from a page that has been deleted afterwards (unless the page, including the revision concerned, has been restored). If the revision concerned has been restored but not the previous one, then the fact that the user has edited the page is preserved, including the time and the edit summary, and the resulting revision, but not the change. A sysop can use Special:DeletedContributions to see revisions that have not been restored. However, applying a diff is not directly possible.
  • The deletion or restoration (undeletion) of a page (if the user is a sysop). Use Special:Logs for this.

User styles

The page body has selector, so we can e.g. use the CSS ul { list-style: decimal }

to number the backlinks.

URLs and links

A user contributions URL looks (for this wiki) like this:


where XX is the user name, IP address, or IP range, and "Contributions" can be abbreviated to "Contribs":


Change the sub-site to view your contributions on that particular subsite. (,, etc.)

To link to a user contributions page you can also use this shorter form: Special:Contributions/XX.

Interwiki links work as normal e.g. w:Special:Contributions/XX.

You can view edits from only one namespace. Each namespace has an associated number. Restricting to one namespace can be done with the long form URL only (in this example the namespace is number 4): // /w/index.php?title=Special:Contributions&target=XX&namespace=4


Your contributions can be viewed by anyone - please be mindful of this. Check the privacy policy, if any, of the site you use; for meta: m:Privacy policy.

First edit

When using the user contributions feature to determine when a user started editing on a wiki, note that edits may have been made in another wiki, while later the page has been imported.

Also, until ca. 2004 there was a bug, which has been fixed but not retroactively, as follows:

If a moved page is moved back, the edit history of the page with the intermediate title shows the latest move only, with the corresponding user name, but with the date and time of the first move(!).

Therefore, if the oldest entries in the user contributions list are moves, they most likely do not represent any activity of the user on the stated dates.


The page has as footer the MediaWiki:sp-contributions-footer, the MediaWiki:sp-contributions-footer-anon for IP address, and MediaWiki:sp-contributions-footer-anon-range for IP ranges.

Note that, as described in phab:T50956, registered users don't see the content of this footer page if their language is different from the original language of the wiki.

Number of edits

The user profile shows the number of edits. The number is based upon an editcount field that is stored for each user, incremented each time the user makes an edit, but not decremented when a user's edit is deleted. Therefore the count includes deleted edits.
