Blog:Edit Counter

This is a five-step guide for making a page that tracks your edits and sorts them into various namespaces. Credit for creating the tool goes to Wikipedia user Kanegasi.

Step 1

Click "Preferences" in the top right corner and select "Appearance" from the top of your preferences page. Under "skin," see which option is selected. It will likely say "vector."

Step 2

Create a page entitled User:Your username/Your skin.js. Because I am using the "vector" skin, as shown in Step 1, my page is entitled User:ShrimpPin/vector.js. Click edit.

Step 3

Copy and past this text word for word into the page you began to edit in Step 2:


/* Counts all your edits and saves them to a page ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Kanegasi/editcounter ) */
if (mw.config.get('wgTitle') === mw.config.get('wgUserName') && mw.config.get('wgNamespaceNumber') === 2) {
/* begin options */

/* end options */

mw.loader.load('https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Kanegasi/editcounter.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript');

}


Step 4

Go to your userpage and look at the sidebar on the left side of the screen. Under "tools," there should now be an option that reads "Edit counter v111." Click this option and wait until it reads "success!"

Step 5

Once the option displays "success!" click the search bar and enter User:Your username/edit count. Search for that page. You should see a page with that title that includes a table with a list of all of your edits, divided into namespaces. "Main" denotes the number of edits you have made to actual Inkipedia articles, such as Splatoon and Annie. Make sure to only include Main edits when using edit count Barnsquids!


That should be all! If you run into any trouble or have any other questions, drop me a message here or leave a comment in the Discussion page for this blog post. -ShrimpPinsig.pngSquidIcon.pngShrimpPinTalk.png 00:41, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
