Dynamic Article List is a great extension, but it had two little problems for me:

  • You could not parse Wikitext in the title field (for example, to add a link)
  • All the information was too wide or caused weird linebreaks

So I updated it a little. Now the opening tag accepts three optional parameters, showtimestamp, showeditor, and showviews. These all default to 1, but if set to 0, will hide the timestamp, the editor, or the view count, respectively, if they were generated by whatever type of list you have. I also let the $parser object take a crack at the title, and now you can add wikimarkup to that field.

Installation[edit]

See Dynamic_Article_List#Installation

This installs exactly like Dynamic Article List, except replace DynamicArticleList.php with the code below. You still need the other files listed on the main site:

  • Download these files and copy the content to appropriately named PHP files:
  • Save the three PHP files into your includes directory.
  • Copy and paste the code (below) into your favorite editor and save it as DynamicArticleList.php in your extensions directory.
  • Add the following line to your LocalSettings.php file, after require_once( "DefaultSettings.php" ); :
    require_once( "extensions/DynamicArticleList.php" );

Usage[edit]

Tag and its Attributes and Parameters[edit]

Tag Name DynamicArticleList
Attributes Attribute Description Default
showeditor (optional) If set to 0, hides the last editor in new/update/discussion lists 1
showtimestamp (optional) If set to 0, hides the timestamp in new/update/discussion lists 1
showviews (optional) If set to 0, hides the number of views in a hot list 1
Parameters Parameter Description Default
title (optional) Title of the output article list blank
type (optional) Type of dynamic article list (new/update/discussion/hot) new
count (optional) Output count of articles 5
categoryRoot (optional) Name of category where (including its children) all articles reside blank

Note:

  • If "categoryRoot" is set, Dynamic Article List will only retrieve articles in this category and its children. If not, all articles will be candidates.
  • The value of parameter "type" could be one of the following (default is new ):
    • new => Newly Posted Articles
    • update => Recently Updated Articles
    • discussion => Recent Discussions
    • hot => Most Popular Articles

Examples[edit]

So, for example, the following code would create a "new article" style list, with a link in the title to an article, and would show the timestamp but not the last editor:

<DynamicArticleList showeditor=0>
title=New Articles in [[History]]
type=new
categoryRoot=History
</DynamicArticleList>

This example would create a discussion list, but would hide the timestamp:

<DynamicArticleList showtimestamp=0>
title=Recent [[Project:Talk pages|Discussion]]
type=discussion
count=10
</DynamicArticleList>

This would create a "hot" list, but hide the view counts:

<DynamicArticleList showviews=0>
type=hot
</DynamicArticleList>

Compatibility[edit]

This version is not compatible with MediaWiki pre-1.5, since it assumes the tag attributes are passed as an array. (It would be very easy to add backwards compatibility.) And since DynamicArticleList requires PHP5 anyway, that should not pose much of a problem. (Just upgrade to 1.7.1.)

Code[edit]

So here's the code. Save the following as DynamicArticleList.php and put it in your extensions directory. (See #Installation)

<?php
/*
* Purpose: Dynamic Output of Article List (Main Page always not in list)
* Note: Currently support four types (new, hot, update, discussion).
* new => Newly Posted Articles
* update => Recently Updated Articles
* hot => Most Popular Articles
* discussion => Recently Updated Discussion
* @author: Zeng Ji (zengji@gmail.com)
*
* To install, add following to LocalSettings.php
* require_once ("extensions/DynamicArticleList.php");
