WatchList improves on standard MediaWiki watchlist functionality and adapts it to the BlueSpice environment.

Usage / features[edit | edit source]

The watchlist can be viewed in:

  • UserSidebar (keyword WATCHLIST) shows entries from a user's own watchlist.
  • Page content (tag-based, added by user). Example: <bs:watchlist count="10" maxtitlelength="50"/>
  • Discussion pages are implicitly watched by MW. These implicit entries do not appear in the list. But a discussion page can be added explicitly.
  • Long titles are truncated.

Technical information[edit | edit source]

Configuration[edit | edit source]

  • The number of watchlist entries is limited to 10 if the user does not provide a different value.
  • The titles displayed are limited to 20 characters in the personal navigation.
