Instructions[edit]

  1. Open the history tab for the page in question.

Named parameters[edit]

Besides the traditionally used positional parameters, the template also supports named parameters:

  • page: the name of the page from where the diff is
  • cur: same as diff (may also be the number after "&cur=" in the URL)
  • diff: the number after "&diff=" as described above
  • oldid: the number after "&oldid="
  • label: the text to display for the diff link
  • server: default if not provided is //meta.wikimedia.org as taken from the {{SERVER}} magic word (for easier interwiki diffs see {{xdiff}})
  • scriptpath: default if not provided is /w as taken from the {{SCRIPTPATH}} magic word (for easier interwiki diffs see {{xdiff}})
