Help talk:New pages
A username parameter is in the works: bugzilla:16720.
Hmmmm... no mention of what all the yellow highlighting means. That would be helpful. I THINK it means that the page no longer exists as the name it was originally created with, but not really sure. Probably ideally NewPages itself would tell what it means, but it should at least be explained somewhere clearly. --AgentFriday (talk) 00:51, 4 February 2013 (UTC)
The documentation indicates that the parameter showredirs controls whether or not redirects are shown, but this parameter is actually ignored. The correct parameter appears to be hideredirs (with inverse behavior, and better matching other parameters). Accepted values are 0 and 1. Tested today on MediaWiki 1.17 and the version currently running mediawiki.org (1.24wmf6 (01f9227)). Aluvus (talk) 04:03, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
working examples needed
It would be helpfull that the documentation contains working examples
wrong implementation of offset
If i use this: Special:Newpages/limit=5,offset=20170101 one would assume that pages are displayed starting ad the offset date. But shown are pages starting on the date before offset Is this a bug or correct behaivior??
Sorting parameters for simplification
It could be interesting to sort these parameters to refine the results, like:
- Date = chose the type of display we want
- Others parameters to be able to chose which one we want to hide or show.
Here, the only possibility is to hide bots or else. Maybe there is another way to do this?
I eventually used "Special:Newestpages/-/10 ", it is exactly what i needed.
