Include RecentPages in Main Page

Sorry for maybe a stupid question, but I'm a newbie with mediawiki. I installed the RecentPages Extension and now I try to include it in the main page by adding the code <recent />. The output of the last 6 new pages is correct, however they are not linked but plain text with wikibrackets like this: [ [ I m the newest page| ] ] What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

I've had the same problem, I'd be grateful if this was fixed soon.

I think I have fixed it. It required adding the line $html = RecentPages::getDisplayTitle ( $title ); for the situation where there was only one column - i noticed that it was working when there was columns and just copied what worked in the other cases...

To get it to link properly change this code ...

                for ( $i = 1; $i <= $numRows; $i++ ) {
                    $title = $retArray[ $i - 1 ];
                    if ( !is_null( $title ) ) {
                        $ret .= "<li>" . $parser->internalParse ( '[[' . $title->getFullText()
                        . '|' . $html . ']]' ) . "</li>\n";

with this code ....

                for ( $i = 1; $i <= $numRows; $i++ ) {
                    $title = $retArray[ $i - 1 ];
                    if ( !is_null( $title ) ) {
                        $ret .= "<li>" . $parser->internalParse ( '[[' . $title->getFullText()
                        . $html . ']]' ) . "</li>\n";

The change removes the pipe that causes the problem in the last line.

sorry, this is going to be a noob question. where do we exactly add this <recent /> code? i simply edited the main page and add this, nothing happened.

So all you see is <recent />, or is it blank? If you provide a URL, it would be helpful. Thanks.

All your pages were below the minimum length of 600 characters, apparently.
