$wgDefaultUserOptions['rcenhancedfilters-disable'] = true;
$wgDefaultUserOptions['wlenhancedfilters-disable'] = true;

$wgHiddenPrefs = ['rcenhancedfilters-disable', 'wlenhancedfilters-disable'];

Although the person asking the question may have a case of "new feature shock" kind of thing.

With all due respect, how do I disable the new Recent Changes thing on my wiki? Sorry about the rushed message, but I didn't want it to put unnecessary demand on my server.

MediaWiki 1.32 PHP 7.2.13 MySQL 5.7.23

With all due respect, it isn't working.

Hm, yes. The config vars have been removed since. So... what about $wgDefaultUserOptions['rcenhancedfilters-disable'] = true?

Minoa (talkcontribs)

I'm sorry, while $wgDefaultUserOptions['rcenhancedfilters-disable'] = true does have an effect on user settings, it still allows users to enable it. I wish for the enhancements to be disabled completely on both the Watchlist and Recent Changes.

I feel that my wiki cannot cope with the additional resource usage that doesn't justify for the fact that we are clearly not as large as Wikipedia. I feel that the implementation of the Edit Review Improvements is too soon, due to lack of documentation. The release notes for 1.32 says nothing about the Edit Review Improvements.

The feature was announced in MediaWiki 1.29's notes. It doesn't add significant extra server-side resources, except perhaps for the "live" option if abused.

I guess I fell behind again on that.

I'm sorry if I sounded harsh earlier, but the live changes thing is the thing that concerns me. We are just not big enough to have that feature enabled.

If you can find a better method than the following, please reply:

$wgDefaultUserOptions['rcenhancedfilters-disable'] = true;
$wgDefaultUserOptions['wlenhancedfilters-disable'] = true;

$wgHiddenPrefs = ['rcenhancedfilters-disable', 'wlenhancedfilters-disable'];

That should prevent your users from using it, yes. Obviously an auto-refreshed browser tab pointed at the page, which the "live" mode replaces, uses more server resources, but it sounds like that's not a concern for you.

Maybe it is just a case of me being very unfamiliar with this new feature. I am sorry about being harsh.
