The XTools ArticleInfo gadget can quickly show you statistics about a page in real-time. It works on all skins, wikis, and will be localized to the wiki's language. These statistics are shown just below the page header. Example:

The XTools ArticleInfo gadget, as seen when viewing the English Wikipedia article on Jimmy Wales.

The available statistics, from left to right:

  • Quality assessment icon, if possible. Only available in specific projects.
  • Number of revisions.
  • Date the page was created, linking to the initial revision.
  • Time since the last edit, linking to the diff.
  • Number of editors to the page.
  • Number of page watchers. If this is not shown, there are less than 30 watchers.
  • Number of pageviews in the past 30 days, linking to Pageviews Analysis.
  • Editor who created the page, and their edit count (linking to their contributions).
  • Link to view full page statistics in XTools.

Installation[edit]

On some wikis this tool may be available in your gadget preferences.

If it is not, you can install the gadget globally by browsing to meta:Special:MyPage/global.js and adding the following code to the end, on a new line:

mw.loader.load('https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=XTools/ArticleInfo.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript');

Alternatively, you can install the script on a single wiki by browsing to Special:MyPage/common.js (on the desired wiki) and pasting in the same code above.
