Recent Changes is a special page that lists recent changes in reverse order, with creation date and time, current size, user who created the page, and first edit summary. It also provides links to patrol these new edits when that feature is enabled.
This special page can be transcluded, with the first unnamed parameter specifying how many entries should be displayed.
Additional parameters may use a comma separated list such as:
|days||integer||Maximum number of days to display|
|limit||integer||Maximum number of entries to display|
|hideminor||Hide minor edits|
|minor||Show minor edits|
|hideliu||Hide logged in users (LIU)|
|hidepatrolled||Only show pages which have not been patrolled.|
|hideanons||Hide Anonymous users|
|hidemyself||Hide the logged in user's own changes|
Each line in recent changes consists of several links:
- diff displays the difference to the previous revision of the page,
- hist links to the revision history of the page, and
- the link with the full title of the page brings you to the current version. If the title is in bold, it indicates that it is on your watchlist.
Next is a flag describing the article modification type:
Following the timestamp is a number within parentheses with a + or -. This refers to the number of bytes that have been added or removed. Next, the user is mentioned with a link to their user page and their talk page or to their contributions (in the case of anonymous users).
Last but not least, there is an edit summary, appearing in italics, if the user submitted one when they made the edit.
