Operator Question[edit]

Why use "<>" instead of "==" or "===" when comparing user name?

<> is actually an alternative (and deprecated, as far as I know) syntax for !=. —Emufarmers(T|C) 21:02, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Hide but don't disable[edit]

There should really be a way to hide the display of the counter without actually disabling the function of the counter. I want MW to count my views, I just don't want anyone to see them!

I think so too. Maybe in 1.16.0 ? Let's hope for it! --SmartK 09:31, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
#viewcount { display: none; } Max Semenik 09:54, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
Wow this was fast. Thank you Max Semenik. I'm sorry to ask but where do I edit this line? In the "skins" directory? And is there also the option to turn of the "This page was last modified on..."? Thanks --SmartK 11:30, 14 July 2010 (UTC) again...
See Manual:CSS. You can learn the IDs or classes of other parts of interface with Firebug or something similar. Max Semenik 11:36, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanx. I just found the file: skins/MonoBook.php It's perfect. Thank you again! --SmartK 12:33, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
Don't edit the distribution!!! Just create page called MediaWiki:Common.css and put that into it. Max Semenik 12:45, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
Ah OK... and this will effect all the skins and especially all the users? --SmartK 13:30, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
Yes, unless people override it with their personal rules. Max Semenik 13:36, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
Damm. It is not working..... I changed the MediaWiki:Common.css and inserted these two lines:
#viewcount { display: none; }
#lastmod { display: none; }
But no effect. Any ideas? Good tip with Firebug by the way ;-) --SmartK 15:02, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
Force-purge your browser's cache. Max Semenik 15:10, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
Trust me... I thought about that... Also tried IE and FF. But no effect. :-( --SmartK 15:38, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
I now found the answer here: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Footer
The MediaWiki:Common.css did not work for me. --SmartK 09:26, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
to disable the counter in CSS, use this value instead:
#footer-info-viewcount { display: none; }
and other like for last modified and copyright info respectively:
#footer-info-lastmod { display: none; }
#footer-info-copyright { display: none; }

[RESOLVED] Page count not showing up[edit]

Greetings,

I commented out the page count setting and I tried setting it to false, but the page counter never displays.

Is there someplace else where it might be hiding?

I also don't see Special:PopularPages..

Thanks,

Where did you comment out the page count setting? It does not need any adjustment in principle if you want it to be active. Tim (SVG) 19:59, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
I fixed the problem. I had it twice in my local settings and they were conflicting. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Wade.courtney (talkcontribs) 22:35, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your feedback. Marking it as resolved. Tim (SVG) 11:06, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

$wgDisableCounters =true; not working in 1.24[edit]

I've set $wgDisalbeCounters to true, but the counter is still showing up. This only happened after I created a new wiki with version 1.24 Christharp (talk) 00:01, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Will be fixed with MW 1.25 (where this feature was removed). --88.130.110.84 13:57, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

$wgDisableCounters = false; not working on my wiki[edit]

I commented out the page count setting and I tried setting it to false, but the page counter never displays.

Is there someplace else where it might be hiding?
