Simplified query continue[edit]

Easy continue allows significant client simplification. Easy continue is an API guarantee to the client that by simply adding all items in the 'continue' section to the next query the client will receive all available data, without accidentally skipping some values due to a 'limit' parameters or the generator paging. This change can be made available in all query versions, and made default in action=query~2.

'continue': {
    'continue': '...',
    'plcontinue': '...',
    'gapcontinue': '...',


  • Rename 'query-continue' to 'continue' because other actions may also be continuable, or might use pageset generator.
