Plugin that outputs metrics about the wiki's authors. Simply save a page including the code <AUTHORSTATS #> (read the Syntax section) to generate a table containing the desired statistics.


Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.

NOTE: This plugin Requires PHP 5.3+ due using namespaces

Example of Usage

Saving a page including in the code <AUTHORSTATS> and <AUTHORSTATS 16>.
This will submit two tables. One with metrics since the beginning of the wiki and one with metrics for the last 16 months.

The generated tables as expected.

Don't display old author and contributions

If your wiki is old, authorstats may not show all contributions. In this case, delete authorstats.json and recreate with this content :

    "authors": {
    "lastchange": 1262381936

Change 1262381936 by the timestamp of the creation of the wiki.
