Allow hiding logged-in users, bots and patrolled pages on Special:Newpages
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: thuejk

As discussed at <a
village pump</a>, it would be nice if it was possible to only show anonymous
created pages at special:newpages.

When the patrol feature was turned on it was also irritating that it wasn't
possible to insert text at the top of special:newpages for explanation.

The attached patch does
*Make it possible specify hideliu, hidebots, hidepatrolled as URL parameters,
and via an interface at special:newpages.
*Insert a short text at top of special:newpages.

Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement

Will be useful to add all latest enchancements from Special:Recentchanges
(show/hide own edits, anonymous edits) too.

If somebody with SVN/CVS write access would actually read/commit the file then I
would consider updating it. I received no reaction here to the patch when I
submitted it 2 years ago, until your comment.

Of course this patch would have to be modified to work against the current codebase (as opposed to 2 years ago), but this appears to be good work and should be implemented.

The patch is not clean. It would be easier to review if it didn't make multiple changes unrelated to the actual bug. That said, this should not be terribly difficult to do, assuming the query isn't slowed down by the added conditions.
