Find out what list pages display a rollback link
Open, MediumPublic2 Estimated Story Points


Many revision lists offer rollback links in their lists. Currently we know that this is the case for

  • History page
  • Changes lists (recent changes, watchlist)
  • user contributions special page

We are not sure that this list is complete

Acceptance Criteria

  • Find out, if the rollback link is added to any other place of mediawiki core but the lists mentioned above and the diff page


  • It seems that the rollback link is added through Linker:generateRollback
  • Another option is searching with mediawiki code search for one of the important functions / "rollback"

I have used the MediaWiki Code Search and looked for "rollback" and "generateRollback" respectively.

The only missing element from this ticket is "Related Changes" ("Änderungen an verlinkten Seiten" in German):

These can be found in categories on the left in the "Tools" section when viewing an article / category. However, this falls into the "changes lists" block from above and shares all relevant code with the other changes lists as far as I can see.
