Editcount extension adds a special page that displays edit counts. This special page can be accessed from Special:Editcount[/user] as well as being included like {{Special:Editcount/user[/namespace]}} (Local Namespace is working)

Download Edit

You can download the extension directly from the MediaWiki source code repository (browse code). You can get:

One of the extensions tags

Not all extensions have tags. Some extensions have tags for each release, in which case those tags have the same stability as the release. To download a tag

  • Go to the tags list
  • Click the name of the tag you want to download
  • Click "snapshot"
The latest version of one of the extensions branches

Each extension has a master branch containing the latest code (might be unstable). Extensions can have further branches as well.

  • Go to the branches list
  • Click the branch name
  • Click "snapshot"
A snapshot made during the release of a MediaWiki version.

This might be unstable and is not guaranteed to work with the associated MediaWiki version.

After you've got the code, save it into the extensions/Extension:Editcount directory of your wiki.

If you are familiar with git and have shell access to your server, you can obtain the extension, with all its tags and branches, as follows:

cd extensions
git clone

Installation Edit

  1. Download a snapshot. Choose the version that matches your version of MediaWiki.
  2. Create a folder called Editcount and put the files in this folder.
  3. Extract the new folder to your extensions directory folder.
  4. Add
    require_once( "{$IP}/extensions/Editcount/Editcount.php" );

    to LocalSettings.php if the name of the file is SpecialEditcount.php.
