Help:Special page inclusion

Create Talk0

It's possible to include items from certain special pages on wiki page, similar to including templates

Step by step

  • Navigate the page you want to add some special page content to, and open it for editing.
  • If you're viewing in Visual mode, select the Source mode tab at the top of the editor.
  • Enter your intended special pages code, based on the reference materials below. For example, if you wanted to show the three most recent changes, you could enter this:
{{Special:RecentChanges/3}}
  • Hit Publish. In our example above, you'll see something similar to this appear on your page:
