Method used to determine if a page in a content namespace should be counted as a valid article.
Redirect pages will never be counted as valid articles.
This variable can have the following values:
- 'link': the page must contain a wiki link to be considered valid
- 'comma': the page must contain a comma to be considered valid
- 'any': all pages are considered as valid articles
- Any other value will have the same result as 'any'.
Retroactively changing this variable will not affect the existing count. To update it, you will need to run the maintenance/updateArticleCount.php script.
