Special pages[edit | edit source]

Special pages are pages that are created by the software on demand. They are located in their own namespace Special: and are not editable directly as other pages. Some special pages depend on the preferences that have been set by a user, e.g. the number of titles which is displayed on a user's watchlist.

The "Special pages" link in the toolbox on the right hand side of your screen will take you to a list of all special pages.

Some special pages can be transcluded.
