FANDOM


This script allows to obtain some stats from other Wikia wikis and insert this data into articles on the wiki.

Data you can obtain
  • Article count
  • Active users count
  • Number of admins
  • Number of edits made on the wiki
  • Images count on the wiki

How to use

You can get data specified above by adding next tags into article text:

<span class="outwikistats-[TYPE]"><span class="outwikistats-hidden">[URL]</span></span>

Where [TYPE] can be:

  • articles - for article count
  • activeusers - for active users count
  • admins - for admins count
  • edits - for number of edits
  • images - for number of images

And [URL] should be an address of the wiki.

Example

This will return an articles count on ru.wikies.

<span class="outwikistats-articles"><span class="outwikistats-hidden">http://ru.wikies.wikia.com</span></span>

This will return an active users count on uk.masseffect.

<span class="outwikistats-activeusers"><span class="outwikistats-hidden">http://uk.masseffect.wikia.com</span></span>

Installation

  • For site-wide use, an administrator can add the line below to the wiki's MediaWiki:ImportJS page. Note that JavaScript must be enabled on the wiki.
dev:WikiStatistics/code.js
  • For personal use, add the code snippet below to your global.js page (for use on all wikis) or your common.js page on your wiki (for use on a single wiki). Note that personal JS must be enabled for your account.
importArticles({
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        'u:dev:WikiStatistics/code.js',
    ]
});
importArticles — Best Practices for installing JavaScript on FANDOM
The importArticles statement is designed to combine multiple HTTP requests into a single data transfer, allowing multiple scripts to load and execute faster. If you've been installing several different scripts, your JavaScript file has probably accumulated unnecessary import statements. Click "Expand" to learn how to efficiently batch import scripts to speed up performance and make your code look cleaner. One other approach is by using the MediaWiki:ImportJS.
If your JavaScript file has several lines of code that say importScript, importScriptPage, or importArticles, you may be able to combine them! By batch importing a collection of scripts with a single import, your JavaScript code will load faster and look cleaner. Consider the example below. On the left is an example of what your JavaScript file might currently look like. On the right is how you could improve that code.
Multiple imports — messy and slow One import — clean and efficient
importScriptPage('AjaxRC/code.js','dev');
 
importScript('MediaWiki:localScript.js');
 
importArticle({
  type: 'script',
  article: 'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js'
});
 
importScriptPage('page1.js', 'wikiname');
 
importScriptPage('page2.js', 'wikiname');
importArticles({
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        'u:dev:AjaxRC/code.js',
        'MediaWiki:localScript.js',
        'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js',
        'u:wikiname:page1.js',
        'u:wikiname:page2.js'
    ]
});
Note: In this example, pay close attention to the placement of commas and other punctuation. For people who aren't familiar with programming (and even those who are!), a common mistake when writing code is to accidentally delete, forget, or misplace critical symbols like commas or quotation marks. This can cause a syntax error that breaks the code. Carefully follow the convention shown here when using importArticles.
But there's much more to importArticles than just this! For more examples and advanced usage, see the help page at Help:Including additional JavaScript and CSS.
